Design and Technology
The national curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils:
At St. Margaret Mary’s our intent is that children will build upon their practical capability in designing and making. They will be encouraged to stimulate originality and enterprise; develop skills using a range of materials and techniques and develop an understanding of the needs of design in order to evaluate their own and others work. They will investigate and question designs and contrast own ideas. They will develop vocabulary skills through using appropriate technical language to describe processes
At St. Margaret Mary’s, Design and Technology is delivered through an engaging creative curriculum approach of Topic based learning. As a school we recently invested in the ‘Projects on a page’ scheme of work which provides a variety of units to ensure coverage of all elements of the Design Technology Curriculum. Throughout the units children will work with a number of materials, including plastic, metal, card, wood and food. They will learn how to use tools correctly and safely. They will be taught the process of designing, making and evaluating their work.
Children will be assessed against end of year group expectations and will be ready for the next stage in their education. They will be excited and engaged 'designers'.
