At Bridge and Patrixbourne Primary School we feel Design and Technology is about providing opportunities for children to use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, considering their own and others' needs, wants and values. Making mistakes is a huge part of Design and Technology and integral to learning and teaching children to be resilient learners.
The Design and Technology curriculum at Bridge & Patrixbourne CEP School aims to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed for pupils to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. We believe that through cross-curricular opportunities Design and Technology lessons should develop curiosity in the environment around us and allow pupils the opportunity to develop a range of practical and technical skills including building structures, mechanisms, exploring electrical control with a range of materials and developing an understanding of food and nutrition. The children also draw upon knowledge and skills within Maths, Science, computing and Art.
Through evaluating and testing their ideas and products pupils will be able to investigate their own interests. The work pupils produce is celebrated across the school and on our blog section below.
