Design and Technology

 

 

Design and Technology Intent

We follow The Early Years Statutory Framework and the national curriculum, using a design, make and evaluate approach to teaching Design and Technology. We have made some enhancements such as visits to a car manufacturer, a farm and a haberdashery as well as opportunities to develop art during woodland learning sessions.

 

All pupils study Design and Technology including those who have SEN and/or disabilities and those who are disadvantaged. The pupils gain knowledge about how to investigate, disassemble, design, make and evaluate every year.

 

We have built our own scheme of work which builds in complexity so that pupils can build their skills and knowledge. Knowledge and skills are constantly revisited and refreshed to ensure that they become embedded. To aid understanding subject specific vocabulary is taught explicitly within every lesson. We have created end points for each topic and milestones for the end of each year to show what pupils should know and can do. As the children move to the next year group, the next teacher then knows where to start. 

 

Pupils come from a mixed urban area of Wirral. We have selected designers, architects and chefs to study, male and female, who share the context of the pupils. To build pupils’ cultural capital, they also study the work of designers who are nationally important.

Year 5 - Framed Structures

DT Spring Term.png

Year 5 have been learning about framed structures this term. They researched different examples across the globe, including the Birds' Nest Stadium in Shanghai and the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The children were then challenged to plan, design and build their own structure to meet their design criteria.

 

 

Year 6 have been learning how to operate and make gears, levers and pulleys. They used theur new skills to make a final fairground design.
