‘Technology makes possibilities. Design makes solutions.’
At Bartley, D&T is an inspiring and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products drawing on skills from a range of other subjects including reading, mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Our children learn how to take risks through high-quality design and technology experiences. Children will leave Bartley being able to design, make and evaluate a range of products.
Clear and comprehensive scheme of work in line with the National Curriculum. The Design Technology National Curriculum is planned for and covered in full within the KS2 school curriculum. Whilst the National Curriculum forms the foundation of our curriculum, we make sure that children learn additional skills, knowledge and understanding and enhance our curriculum as and when necessary.
Independent learning: In design technology children may well be asked to solve problems and develop their learning independently. This allows the children to have ownership over their curriculum and lead their own learning in Design Technology.
Collaborative learning: In design and technology children may well be asked to work as part of a team learning to support and help one another towards a challenging, yet rewarding goal.
