MISS. S. SMITH

DT Lead

At the root of good primary practice is the development of important skills, concepts and attitudes through experience. The D.T. process involves analysis, problem-solving, practical capability and evaluative skills which are all transferable.

 

In primary schools D.T. fits naturally into an integrated curriculum and is an approach to learning which is already familiar. Design and Technology (D.T.) is a practical curriculum area that involves the child in meaningful activities, which allow pupils to design and to make. Children should develop skills and knowledge of a wide range of materials and equipment through practical activities in a safe and controlled environment.

 

At Eskdale Academy we will:

 

  • provide children with opportunities to work individually, in pairs and group situations;

  • encourage children to discuss plans and evaluate their own and other people’s work in a constructive way;

  • enable children to talk about how things work, and to draw and model their ideas;

  • encourage children to select appropriate tools, techniques and materials for making a product, whilst following safe procedures;

  • teach specific designing and making skills that develop the confident and safe use of tools;

  • teach children how to use skills and knowledge from other curricular areas in their DT work;

  • allow children to develop imaginative and inventive thinking through solving real problems.
