Summerlea CP School Growing thoughtful learners and independent thinkers

Intent

At Summerlea School our aim is to ensure that the children are taught the subject of Design and Technology as specified in the Early Years Foundation Framework and National Curriculum.

Design and Technology prepares children to participate in an ever-changing technological world by becoming discriminating, informed users and innovators of products. They learn to think creatively to improve the quality of life by looking for and responding to human needs, wants and interests. They combine their understanding of relevant and past design and technology with practical skills to design, make and evaluate their own products.

Design and Technology offers children the opportunity to:

  • Develop creativity, resilience and evaluative skills which will support them in their later lives.
  • Understand and be able to implement the Design and Technology process from conception to the finished product.
  • Participate in an ever-changing technological world by becoming discriminating, informed users and innovators of products.
  • Learn to think creatively to improve the quality of life by looking for and responding to human needs, wants and interests.
  • Combine their understanding of relevant and past design and technology with practical skills to design, make and evaluate their own products.
