Curriculum Intent for Design Technology
At Beckley CE Primary School, it is our intent that Design and Technology encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as confident individuals and as members of a team.
We encourage children to respond as caring citizens, using their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.
The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become successful learners as innovators and risk-takers.
