Design Technology at St Silas Primary School
At St Silas, the curriculum for Design and Technology aims to ensure that all pupils:
- 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 range of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality 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.
We use a detailed skills progression document to plan and deliver art lessons. This ensures that art and design skills are developed systematically throughout their time at school.
Design Technology is delivered in blocks, we find this works best as we are able to plan, deliver and evaluate lessons to able us to progress learning effectively over a short time frame.
