Design and Technology

The national curriculum for design and technology aims to ensure that all pupils:
  • Develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
  • Build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of user’s critique.
  • Evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
At St Erth we follow the Kapow Scheme of work and match the units to our topics for a more holistic and meaningful approach to learning.

We chose this scheme because;

  • It is authored by primary D&T specialists.
  • Content is based on D&T Association's "Projects on a Page" and beyond.
  • It provides a full scheme of work, easily adaptable to your teaching needs, time and resources.
  • There is clear progression of learning throughout KS1 and KS2.
  • It provides relevant cross-curricular opportunities.
