Design and Technology

Introduction to Design and Technology

The new Design and Technology national curriculum represents continuity and change, challenge and opportunity. It has given Bretherton the chance to review and enhance current approaches in order to provide an even more exciting and rigorous curriculum.

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past  and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.   (National Curriculum 2014)

Curriculum Maestro is utilised alongside Projects on a Page planning to ensure a wide coverage of excellent Design & Technology opportunities for all classes. Early Years pupils have a number of creative continuous provision activities in class to ensure their love for Design and creating starts at the very outset of their school experience.
