At Whiston Willis Primary Academy we want to encourage an openness and flexibility of mind, so as to meet new challenges and problems. Design and Technology is about providing opportunities for our children to develop their capability. By combining their design and making skills with knowledge and understanding they will learn to create quality products.
Our children are encouraged to be creative and innovative, and are actively encouraged to think about important issues such as sustainability and enterprise. Our Design and Technology education involves two important elements- learning about the designed and made world and how things work as well as learning to design and make functional products for particular purposes and users.
By taking part in an inspiring and rigorous practical subject, our children should be able to use their creativity, imagination and social skills to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems in a variety of contexts. Our children will also get the opportunity to develop the life skills and knowledge associated with healthy living, food nutrition and cookery.
Our Design and Technology curriculum will bring learning to life.
We teach Design and Technology using the D and T Association's recommended resource, Projects on a Page. We plan our projects on a two year cycle to ensure progression in knowledge, skills and vocabulary.
