Design and Technology

Through our Design Technology curriculum, we aim to deliver a curriculum which is accessible to all and that will maximise the outcomes for every child so that they develop lifelong skills and knowledge.

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. It encourages children to learn to think and work creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.  We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other curriculum areas such as maths, English, science, computing and art.

Aims and Intent

At Carnagill, we aim for a high-quality DT curriculum which engages and inspires children. Our curriculum provides children with opportunities to develop and extend their knowledge and skills and to be able to express their individual interests, thoughts and ideas.

Our curriculum is skills-based and over time, children will develop their knowledge and skills within a range of contexts and mediums.

DT provides children with an opportunity to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products, considering their own and others’ needs, linking their learning to other subjects across the curriculum such as science and maths.

Please see our DT policy for more details.

The Subject Leader for DT is Vicky McNichol.

We are currently CLOSED to children in Year 5 and 6 as well as Reception (Peridot, Amethyst and Topaz classes) due to positive cases of COVID-19. All children from these classes should isolate; however, siblings should come to school as usual.

Further details will be emailed out and shared on Seesaw for all parents.
Take care.
