DT (Design & Technology)
Glade Primary school we intend to build a Design and Technology curriculum which develops learning and results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Children learn and understand more.
At Glade we intend to design a Design Technology curriculum with appropriate subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum Design and Technology of study, to fulfil the duties of the NC whereby schools must provide a balanced and broadly-based curriculum which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils and prepares them for the opportunities and responsibilities and experiences for later life. Children are encouraged to critically evaluate their own work and that of others in order to learn from their experiences.
In Design Technology children are taught to use tools correctly and safely to combine their designing and making skills alongside their knowledge and understanding in order to construct products that satisfy needs and challenges.
