Design Technology curriculum intent
At St Adrian’s Primary School, we aim to use the teaching of Design and Technology to offer opportunities for the pupils to utilise their imagination and creativity to design and make products that have a real and relevant purpose. Through our curriculum, the pupils are able to make links to designs and designers throughout history, adding historical context and depth to their designs. We also aim to provide opportunities for pupils to critique, test and evaluate their designs and products and the work of others. Where possible, we aim to use cross-curricular links to add more depth and applicability to the products being made.
