"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."

Steve Jobs

 

Design and Technology is about how things work and are made. It makes a contribution to the well-being of our communities and our lives.

 

2014 National Curriculum document explains

Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.’

 

 

INTENT

 

 At Stoke Park Infant School we believe that children are naturally curious when it comes to exploring the world around them.

We know that by exploring how things work and are made through first-hand investigation and problem solving scenarios the learning will be meaningful and memorable.

Therefore, we plan to give children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making products. We aim to nurture creativity and innovation through design and by expecting children to explore the designed world in which we live and work. 

 

We plan for development in the children's skills and knowledge in design, structures and mechanisms and use a range of materials including textiles and food.  We provide exciting activities linked to our curriculum topics that encourage creativity and the opportunity to think like a designer.
