Design Technology Vision

At Evendons, our DT teaching and learning is an integral part of our STEM curriculum. We provide children with real life contexts for learning DT which are inspired by the thematic curriculum topics.

Intent

Through DT, children should be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects, from the world of STEM,  to inspire them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products. STEM ambassador visits to the school should be used where possible to help inspire the children’s learning.

Using the DT cycle of ‘design, make, evaluate’ the children will develop skills and knowledge appropriate for their age and use an increasing range of tools and materials safely.
