Design & Technology
Co-ordinator: Miss Doran
Our Design and Technology curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils develop skill, knowledge and understanding in designing and making functional products.
We nurture creativity and innovation through design and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.
Every Design and Technology project is linked to other subjects across the curriculum such as science, history and English;
Design and Technology allows children to develop practical skills that are required throughout life.
The children are presented with a variety of practical design problems and they work both independently and cooperatively to create a project that meets the design needs. Through Design and Technology, the children are encouraged to create a variety of designs and evaluate their own ideas constantly against the design criteria.
The children are also taught how to select and use appropriate materials that will create a well finished final design.
Each year, the children build on a number of skills that progress throughout their time at Stanford Junior School. Ultimately, our curriculum aims to provide children with the practical skills they can use throughout life.
