Reaching for the Stars with Aspiration and Hope
The National Curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils:
- Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
- Build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users.
- Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
- Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
Teachers will use these aims to plan accordingly and link to other subjects within the creative curriculum at Bromesberrow St Mary’s Primary School. Please see our key skills in DT (below), which shows how children at Bromesberrow make progress in this subject as they develop throughout school.
As a part of our whole school cohesion in the curriculum we adopt an enquiry focus each term, e.g. being designers and manufacturers, historians, geographers, artists, musicians, linguists... We believe that this creates better connectivity between the subjects, making learning more relevant to the children, so that they are inspired to 'reach for the stars' as a school team and personally.
