“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs
Through the Design and Technology (DT) curriculum, we aim to give children the skills to design, make and evaluate their own products, following a design brief in a variety of contexts. Children will have the opportunity to develop their technical knowledge by using a range of tools and materials to create their products. From Year 1 onwards, each class has a DT day once per half-term to explore different aspects of design and technology. In the Early Years Foundation Stage, DT is integrated into the EYFS curriculum. It is taught and planned through whole-class teaching and continuous provision. Whole school topics such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) week also enable children to immerse themselves in DT.
