Design Technology Vision
Engineers, fashion designers, carpenters, architects…all have something in common and that’s Design Technology! DT is the perfect way to develop children’s problem solving, resilience, teamwork and critical thinking which are all lifelong skills and transferable skills. It allows children to understand how different people such as engineers have had an impact on the world.
How we learn Design Technology
At Hujjat Primary School, we give children opportunities to see how things work and how they are made. We carry out in school and project style learning to enhance our children’s vocabulary, knowledge and skills in DT.
How we deliver the Curriculum
We follow the Early Years Framework and National Curriculum for Design and Technology and as a school, we also have a progression of skills so that children are constantly developing and improving on their techniques. Right from the start, our children are given the time to experiment with tools and materials to build and solve problems. Children learn how to collaborate with one another whilst solving problems and use critical thinking to evaluate what worked and how they can improve on their design.
As children progress further through the school, Design Technology will become more project based. We pick an element of DT and children spend time improving their skills in this area in order to design, create and evaluate a final purposeful product. Children’s work is celebrated during curriculum and parent teacher evenings around the school.
