At King’s Oak Primary School, the Design and Technology curriculum consists of designing, making, evaluation, technical knowledge and also cooking and nutrition.
We believe that Design and Technology is an inspiring, practical subject which prepares all young people to live and work in the designed and made world. By using creativity and imagination, our pupils will be able to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems considering a variety of needs. Design and Technology helps to teach maths and English and indeed other compulsory subjects on the curriculum in a fun manner and put these subjects into context, making them easier to digest and more understandable to younger primary age pupils.
By the time children leave King’s Oak, they will be able to:
● build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
● critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
● understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook meals for their families
