Desgin Technology

Th Laurels Primary school’s Design and technology scheme of work aims to inspire children to be innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle through ideation, creation, and evaluation. We want our children to develop the confidence to take risks, through drafting design concepts, modelling, and testing and to be reflective learners who evaluate their work and the work of others. Through building knowledge, we aim to build an awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage pupils to become resourceful, enterprising citizens who will have the skills to contribute to future design advancements.

Curriculum sequencing

The curriculum is sequenced to always build on children’s technical knowledge whilst they design, make and evaluate products, including during cooking and nutrition topics.
