Our overall intent is that pupils when they leave Y6 are innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle through ideation, creation and evaluation. They have an awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and that they will become resourceful, enterprising citizens who have the skills to contribute to future design advancements to help our world. Children also get to transfer skills from other subjects such as mathematics, art and science to enhance their learning and understand how multi-discipline knowledge and skills are important.
Our golden thread is: ‘Caretakers of the world’. Our DT curriculum encourages pupils to think about sustainability, seasonality and the carbon footprint of food.
For DT, we follow the Kapow scheme of learning. The documents below show the progressive key learning that takes place in this subject across all key stages.
