Design Technology

Vision for Design Technology

 

At All Saints we want to prepare our pupils to be part of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world. We aim to develop creative, technical, imaginative thinking children through our teaching of Design Technology, as well as developing perseverance, resourcefulness and the confidence take risks. Within this, all staff at All Saints strive to give the children a wide range of experiences and opportunities through the use of different resources and equipment whilst being safe, happy, respectful learners. 

What's New?

 

Through All Saints' Journeys of Discovery all aspects of Design Technology are covered, ranging from structures to mechanisms, cooking to electrical systems. We have always be investing in new resources and equipment to enhance all children’s DT experiences. There will also be a Design Technology club; ‘Building Club’, open to both Key Stage One and Key Stage Two. 

Subject Priorities

 

1) Skills and coverage – we are aiming to develop all pupil’s skills across all year groups and using these skills to become creative, technical, imaginative thinking children

2) Resources and equipment – we are ensuring a wide range of DT resources and equipment are available to provide the children of All Saints with exciting, enjoyable and safe Design Technology experiences.
 
3) Staff training – we must ensure all staff have the knowledge and confidence in the use of a wide range of Design Technology resources and equipment.
