At Bevois Town Primary, it is our intention that pupils will be equipped with the knowledge and skills needed in a rapidly changing world where Design technology is key. Our teaching of design and technology demands that pupils are curious and brave in order to achieve success and enables to be confident to take on new challenges, develop new skills and create imaginative pieces of work. Pupils are encouraged to become independent, resourceful, creative problem-solvers and thinkers both as individuals and as part of a team.
Our curriculum is planned so that pupils follow a process where evaluation and communication are key. 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. Projects allow pupils to apply skills from across the curriculum; mathematics, science, computing and art. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they will develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
