Design Technology

 

In design and technology pupils will have the opportunity to learn to:

  • Design purposeful, functional, appealing products for themselves and other users based on design criteria
  • Generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through talking, drawing, templates, mock-ups and, where appropriate, information and communication technology
  • Select from and use a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing]
  • Select from and use a wide range of materials and components, including construction materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their characteristics
  • Explore and evaluate a range of existing products
  • Evaluate their ideas and products against design criteria
  • Build structures, exploring how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable
  • Explore and use mechanisms [for example, levers, sliders, wheels and axles] in their products

Pupils will be able to develop their skills as designers by:

  • Creating designs and drawings to show their ideas
  • Using a variety of tools and materials
  • Using their imagination
  • Evaluating, changing and adapting my ideas
  • Considering the purpose of their design
