At Asquith Primary School our intention - through DT teaching - is to provide children with a real-life context for learning. As an inspiring and practical subject, we intend to prepare children to deal with an ever-changing technological world, encouraging them to become creative and resourceful problem solvers, working both independently and as members of a team.
Our balanced and varied curriculum will allow pupils 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 and values.
At Asquith, we teach Design and Technology through a clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. The scheme we use to support our teaching is called 'Projects on a Page'; it gives our teachers scope to use their creativity and professional judgment, whilst ensuring the quality, integrity, and rigour of children’s learning. Each year group covers three areas of Design and Technology, including cooking, per academic year. We provide our children with the correct technological vocabulary which is built upon each year in a solid and coherent structure when teaching this subject. All areas taught are intrinsically linked together to create an accumulation of knowledge to serve our children when they move on to secondary school and beyond.
