Design and Technology

At Havannah Primary School our intention within the Design and Technology (DT) curriculum, is to develop within our pupils a deep sense of enjoyment, appreciation and love of design and technology. 

We will teach the fundamental skills that the children can apply, develop and build upon throughout their learning journey. Our curriculum will include a balance in focus and time dedicated to the design process and the outcome of each unit, which will be documented in an individual sketch book. We intend to consistently follow the design process in order to effectively research, design, make, evaluate and improve what we produce. The children will study key inventors, designers and architects and develop an understanding of inventions within historical timelines, which will inspire the methods we use and final outcomes produced. The children will develop their skills in the three main areas of the design and technology curriculum: materials/structures, mechanisms  and food and pupils will get the opportunity to develop their skillset using different tools and working with different materials. Pupils will develop a love of designing and understand the vital role designers/architects/inventors have in the past and continue to play in our lives.

 

The History topics have inspired all of the Design Technology units of work, please see the History topics for each year group below.
