Design Technology Intent at Alderton Junior School
National Curriculum Key Stage 2:
“Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils should be taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing and making. They should work in a range of relevant contexts [for example, the home, school, leisure, culture, enterprise, industry and the wider environment].”
The Design Technology Curriculum at Alderton Junior School allows all year groups to experience the 3 main threads of DT: Food technology, Textiles and Product Design.
Children will have the opportunity to take part in DT lessons which stimulate their creativity, imagination and inventiveness to give them the skills, concepts and knowledge necessary for them to express their responses to ideas and experiences. They will design, plan, make and evaluate in each project as well as learn new technical skills. Each project supports the learning of different product designers, design history and designing for a purpose.
Curriculum Progression Map for DT:
Pupils will be assessed at the end of each project.
