Design and Technology
Design and Technology Curriculum Intent Statement
At Folly View Primary we nurture our children’s inner creativity and confidence. Through our learning muscles our Design & Technology curriculum encourages our children to become independent, creative problem-solvers. It also allows them to learn to think as individuals and as part of a team. The children develop their knowledge and understanding of how and why products are made in the way they are and how these products could be modified and improved. Design and Technology combines skills, knowledge, concepts and values to enable children to tackle real problems as well as being able to evaluate. We do not just focus on an end product; the whole process encourages children to make decisions for themselves, develop their ideas and to be empowered to evaluate their design. We make these experiences relevant and meaningful. Our children will learn to make something, for someone, for some purpose.
