At Milking Bank Primary School we aim to provide children with a DT education that is relevant in our rapidly changing world. We want to encourage our children to become problem solvers who can work creatively on a shared project.
We believe that high-quality DT lessons will inspire children to think independently, innovatively and develop creative, procedural and technical understanding.
Our DT curriculum provides children with opportunities to research, represent their ideas, explore and investigate, develop their ideas, make a product and evaluate their work. Children will be exposed to a wide range of media including textiles, food and woodwork; through this, children will develop their skills, vocabulary and resilience.
The teaching and implementation of the Design and Technology Curriculum at Milking Bank Primary School is based on the National Curriculum and linked to topics to ensure a well-structured approach to the skills based subject. Staff follow Chris Quigley’s milestones in order to ensure progression throughout the children’s primary school journey.
Children will have clear enjoyment and confidence in design and technology that they will then apply to other areas of the curriculum.
Children will ultimately know more, remember more and understand more about Design Technology, demonstrating this knowledge when using tools or skills in other areas of the curriculum and in opportunities out of school.
As designers children will develop skills and attributes they can use beyond school and into adulthood.
