At Heaton Park Primary School we intend Design and Technology to be creative and practical: providing our children with the chance to problem solve and develop their own creative ideas. We aim to provide our children with the opportunity to use their imagination to design, make and evaluate products within a variety of context; building on technical knowledge to provide motivation and meaning to their learning.
We use the Kapow design technology scheme in school. Children will be taught a range of topics including; mechanisms, textiles, cooking and nutrition, structures, the digital world and electrical systems (in Key Stage 2). Through hands-on, practical experiences we aim for children to leave Year 6 with knowledge and skills of DT which will inspire and prepare our children with skills for life.
