Design Technology

DESIGN TECHNOLOGY POLICY AND SCHEME OF WORK:

 

“Design Technology is about making things that people want and that work well. Creating these things is highly exciting; it is an inventive, fun activity.”

James Dyson (Chairman, Dyson Ltd.)

 

Introduction:

The Scheme of Work will be made up of a progressive series of units of work covering 4 aspects: Design a product, make a product and evaluate the design or construction throughout the process and at the end.

Throughout these units children will both select from and use a wide range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks.

They will also select from and use a wide range of materials and components, including construction materials, textile and food ingredients, according to their characteristics.     

 

Throughout Key Stage 1 all children will have experience of working on a design and make project at least once within a range of materials. Key Stage 2 children will have experience of working on a design and make project at least twice within a variety of materials. 

 

  • The duration of the design and make activities will vary, focused practical tasks, investigative and evaluating activities and specific skills teaching will make up the time allocation.
  • Within the planned units of work all children will be presented with opportunities to develop their design skills.
  • Assessment of primary design and technology is an ongoing process and will be incorporated into the planning of units of work.
