Design and Technology Long Term Plan

It is our intent for DT to offer children the chance to use creative thinking and design within a defined purpose and tangible outcome. Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils are taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in a process of designing and making. They work in a range of contexts through our topic based approach which allows for cross curricular links to be made.

Through the study of DT pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

Advent Term 2019

Reception

Supertato to Tasty Tato

We learnt how to cook potatoes in different ways.  We followed safety and hygiene rules to make mashed potato, baked potato and fries.  Of course, we then tasted the different potatoes learnt some new vocabulary to describe them.  We then created a pictogram to show which type was the most popular.

Super Veg!

After being inspired by the story ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra, we created our own Super Vegetables.

A House for a Mouse

After listening to ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson we realized that all the creatures have a home except or the mouse so we decided to make one for him.  We used sticks, lolly pop sticks, salt dough and lots of perseverance to create a house for the mouse.
