Design & Technology
Design and Technology Curriculum Statement
Design and Technology prepares children to deal with tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. It encourages children to become independent, creative problem solvers and thinkers, as individuals and part of a team. At Longfield Primary School the Design and Technology curriculum combines skills, knowledge, concepts and values to enable children to tackle real problems. It can improve problem solving, analysis, evaluation skills and practical capability.
We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. The children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers. As part of our cross curricular approach, some of our ‘themes’ taught will have a strong D&T focus and will be taught in blocks of work across the year. Each unit of learning will be planned based on key D&T skills that we aim to develop throughout the child’s learning journey. Longfield Primary School are firm believers that high-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture and wealth and well-being of the nation.
