Intent - What do we intend children to learn through Design and Technology?
In Design and technology, we expect all children to learn new technical skills that build upon prior knowledge and experiences, enabling them to know more and remember more. The Design and technology curriculum is carefully sequenced so that there is a clear progression of skills from Reception to Year 6, matching the expectations of the National Curriculum. Our Design and technology curriculum aims to prepare children to live in an increasingly technological world by providing them with the creative, technical and practical expertise to perform everyday tasks confidently. We expect children to have the knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to design and make high-quality products for a wide range of users and purposes, and be able to critique and evaluate the work of themselves and others. Alongside Science, children will be immersed in the Design and technology curriculum as part of our STEM based summer term topic. Within this topic children will explore our RPS values, connecting our themes of Respect, Pride and Success to Design and technology.
