Design and Technology

Intent for DT

With DT we intend to equip children to use critical thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. At Grange View we give our pupils life- skills that will enable them to flourish and achieve their god given potential. We want our pupils to be able to operate in the 21st century workplace and we want them to know the career opportunities that will be open to them if they study DT.

Our Design Technology curriculum focuses on a progression of knowledge and skills. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Our intention is that Design Technology supports children’s creativity and allows children to apply the knowledge and skills learned in other subjects, particularly Maths, Science and Art. Children’s interests are captured through theme learning, ensuring that links are made in a cross curricular way, giving children motivation and meaning for their learning.
