DT - Intent Implementation Impact
Design and Technology creates problem solving skills and critical thinkers. It provides visual, tactile and sensory experiences and a different way of understanding and responding to the world. It provides exploration of food through different senses of sight, touch, smell and taste.
Our design and technology provision is investigational through exploration of possibilities as well as skills based – children are able to be creative and explore to make their own products using different materials and evaluate processes effectively. Pupils develop their independence and life skills through food preparation activities as seen in class.
Where possible, students are encouraged to develop their learning in the acquisition of knowledge and skills, scaffolding previous experiences. Students explore broad ideas and meanings through their work relating to various stimuli such as TLG themes, books, and historical structures.
