Design technology

At Acomb First School, we intend to build a high quality Design Technology curriculum, which is inspiring, creative and practical. We believe that our DT lessons will give children the willingness and mind-set to take creative risks and think outside the box. Our DT curriculum will enable children to carry out thorough research, show initiative and to ask questions to further their knowledge and understanding. We want our children to use creativity and imagination, to design and make innovative products and prototypes. We intend for all children to acquire appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum. It is our aim to create strong cross-curricular links with other subjects, such as Mathematics, Science, Computing, and Art. We want Design and Technology to prepare our children, to give them the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences they need to be successful in later life and go on to have careers within Design and Technology.
