Design Technology

Curriculum - Design  Technology

 

During the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, pupils learn how to think imaginatively and talk about what they like and dislike when designing and making. They build on their early childhood experiences of investigating objects around them. They explore how familiar things work and talk about, draw and model their ideas. They learn how to design and make safely and start to use Information, Communication, Technology (ICT) as part of their designing and making. Knowledge, skills and understanding are applied when 'developing ideas', 'planning', 'making products' and 'evaluating' them.

Through Design Technology the children at Woodlands learn to think and intervene creatively and become creative problem solvers, as individuals and members of a team. They look for needs, wants and opportunities and respond to them by developing a range of ideas and making products and systems. They combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetics, social and environmental issues and function. As they do so, they reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and effects.
