Design and Technology
The design and technology curriculum we deliver at Kippax Greenfield Primary School provides the opportunity for our children to become skilled designers who use both creativity and imagination to design, make and evaluate products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Where possible, projects are delivered in a sequence of lessons where they are used to enhance the learning of our wider curriculum topics, ensuring that children make purposeful links and associations with the ever advancing technological world.
Our Design and Technology curriculum combines skills, knowledge and vocabulary to enable children to tackle real problems. It improves analysis, problem solving, practical capability and evaluation skills. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to our curriculum themes, enabling pupils to notice connections and patterns in their learning. Our planned progression in Design and Technology ensures children build their skills, knowledge and vocabulary cumulatively, leading to the design, planning, making and evaluating of ever-more complex products.
Please see our Design and Technology Knowledge and Skills Progression document below, which includes information about each key stage.
