At Roseberry Primary and Nursery School we aim to provide all children with a Design and Technology education that is relevant in our rapid ever-changing world. In this practical subject, the lessons are sequenced so that the children will use their imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We encourage all children to become problem solvers and risk-takers who can creatively work on projects individually and within a team.
We aspire to teach high-quality D&T lessons that will inspire our children to think independently, innovatively and develop creative, procedural and technical understanding. We ensure that we provide children with opportunities to research, represent their ideas, introduce relevant vocabulary, explore and investigate, develop their ideas, make products and evaluate their work. These opportunities are offered to everyone in order to inspire disadvantaged pupils, support SEND children and challenge higher able children.
We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art. This will enable them to develop and progress their skills, vocabulary and resilience. These skills and attributes can then be used by the children beyond school and into adulthood as they become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
