“Creativity is contagious. Pass it on.” - Albert Einstein
How Design and Technology supports our school's vision:
Design Technology brings learning to life. We inspire children to be creative and learn how to take risks, becoming resilient and resourceful, innovative, and decision-makers when solving the problem, compelling children to learn to think and intervene creatively both as individuals and as members of a team.
At Aberford C of E Primary School, 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 promote, where appropriate, the implementation of cross-curricular links with other subject areas/themes - where the children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness. Pupils are also encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers, building up their resilience to solve problems posed by and developing and building a repertoire of strategies in which to use.
National Curriculum Aims for all pupils:
- develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
- build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
- critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
- understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook
