Our DT Curriculum offers a coherently planned sequence of lessons to help teachers ensure they have progressively covered the requirements of the Design and Technology National Curriculum.
Our scheme of work ensures that children have a varied and well mapped out Design and Technology curriculum. It provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of the Design and Technology National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2, including: designing, making, evaluating and developing technical knowledge. This progression is clearly identified on progression maps and each lesson has been carefully planned to match these.
Design and Technology at St James promotes qualities such as enjoyment, creativity, planning, enthusiasm and perseverance for quality as well as success. We teach children a variety of skills and celebrate their successes when a project comes together. All lessons are differentiated which helps to ensure that learning is as tailored and inclusive as possible. Each unit of work will have an overarching question which children will explore attached to it as a focus for the children to build towards being able to answer.
