DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY
At Brigg Primary, children receive a design and technology curriculum which allows them to exercise their determination through designing and making. Skills are taught progressively to ensure that all children are able to learn and practice in order to develop as they move through the school. Evaluation is an integral part of the design process and allows children to adapt and improve their product, based on their own opinion and the opinion of others. This is an integral part of building respect, listening and acknowledging feedback from others that they may not agree with and giving feedback themselves in an appropriate way
Each stage of the design, make and evaluate cycle is rooted in technical knowledge, with the design process rooted in real life, relevant contexts to give meaning to learning. This also allows the children a wider range of opportunities and encourages links with the local community. While making, children are given choice and a range of tools to choose freely from.
By the time children leave Brigg Primary, we consider it important for them to be able to make decisions about their products for themselves – whether that be in the process of designing, making or evaluating. Our children will create products they can see, touch – and even taste – enhancing their understanding of the role Design and Technology plays in the wider world.
