Design and Technology (DT)

The Subject Leader for Design and Technology (DT) is Mrs Raynor

 

At Underwood, the children learn the essential skills of designing, evaluating and making in line with the 2014 National Curriculum. They learn to join materials and evaluate their own and others' products.

 

Teaching for every child

Key Stage 1

 

Children are taught to:
* look at and talk about familiar products (made of materials such as card, textiles and food) to see how they work
* practise simple practical skills and do tasks, such as cutting, folding and gluing, which they will use as they make their own products
* plan and create their own products, using what they have learned.

 

Teaching for every child

Key Stage 2

 

Children are taught to:
* look at products to see how they work and how they are used, and ask the views of people who use them
* practise practical skills and tasks, such as cutting, joining, fixing and connecting
* design and create their own products, using what they have learned. They learn how to test their work, and may use computers to help them. The products use familiar materials such as card, textiles and food, but also mouldable materials, and electrical and mechanical parts.
