Design and Technology
Design and Technology Intent
Today, and in the future, people interact with and are impacted by innovations in technology. There is something for everyone, and here at Meadows, we believe that Design and Technology is a subject everyone can enjoy and grow from.
Design and Technology allows children to utilise a multitude of cross-curricular skills and knowledge. Through the completion of a termly cooking, textiles or resistant materials project, completed through an iterative cycle, children can develop and apply their learning to real-life contexts. We will strive to ensure that Design and Technology is the exciting and fulfilling experience it is and should be.
Through engagement with the D&T curriculum, children should be able to:
- Cultivate creative, technical and practical expertise through the understanding and application of the design and technology iterative cycle.
- Develop the understanding that Design and Technology concerns creating ‘something, for somebody, for some purpose’ and how this applies to real-life contexts.
- Build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to research, design, make and evaluate high-quality prototypes and products of their own and others, for a wide range of users in differing contexts.
- Work with a range of resources in resistant materials, textiles and cooking.
