Design and Technology
Statement of Intent DT:
At Christ the King, our Design and Technology curriculum engages children to become young designers, inventors and engineers. It will allow children to think creatively, imaginatively and to design and make products in a variety of contexts. It is our intent to develop and support the children in following a design process, equipping them with skills to participate in the development of rapidly changing technology. Our Design and Technology curriculum will allow children to apply the knowledge and skills gained in other subjects, particularly Maths, Science and Art. At Christ the King, children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers and evaluation is an integral part of the design process as it allows children to adapt and improve their product- a key skill which they will need throughout their life. Children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness.
