At Christ Church Primary School design and technology brings learning to life and is taught through our ‘learning journey’ curriculum. Our quality texts inspire creativity and imagination and give pupils a context in which to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems. Our D&T curriculum encourages pupils to be creative and innovative, and they are actively encouraged to think about important issues such as sustainability and enterprise.
Design and technology lessons at Christ Church Primary develop pupils’ knowledge and understanding about the designed and made world and how things work. Throughout their time at school, pupils develop skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food.
Through ‘blocked’ units of work, pupils have a wide range of opportunities to develop their capability in design and technology. By combining their design and making skills with knowledge and understanding they learn to create quality, functional products for particular purposes and users.
