DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY

 

The 2014 National Curriculum for Design & Technology aims to ensure that all children:

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.

 

INTENT 

We intend to provide our children with the opportunities to develop their hidden talents and broaden their horizons. This, in turn, will open up a wider world of opportunities. Through the development of knowledge around sources, cause & consequence and their own questioning and inquiries into a range of areas of STEM, children will become reflective and resilient individuals.

 

IMPLEMENTATION

Children explore D&T through a wide range of topics and hands-on opportunities.  This exploration is implemented with a range of sources, media, visits, workshops and virtual experiences that enhance the development of knowledge.  Our curriculum is planned as such that it provides our children with regular opportunities to revise and revisit their learning. Lessons contain theoretical content and practical application across all areas of technology. Children actively partake in the reflective learning process, through planning, creating and evaluating a variety of projects. They present their knowledge in a variety of ways, both teacher and child-led.

 

IMPACT

Children of MBHT leave school with the skills and knowledge needed for their everyday life. They are confident to use a range of practical skills and know how to utilise equipment safely and effectively.  They will develop a broad range of subject knowledge that enables them to problem solve, innovate and take calculated risks to become capable citizens. This is then a platform for children to explore their future with a well-informed knowledgeable understanding of opportunities that require a disciplined and resourceful mind.
