Design and Technology at Alresford Primary School

At Alresford, we want every learner to become a confident and competent user of design and technology. Our design and technology curriculum allows our children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve problems. The purpose of our teaching is to develop the children’s subject knowledge and combine learning from other subjects, such as maths, science, engineering, computing and art. Children will be given opportunities to learn how to take risks and become innovative and critically reflective. They will develop an understanding of the impact of design and technology in daily life and the wider world.

Our Aims

All children will be given the opportunity:

  • To use creativity and practical skills to complete tasks confidently in the technological world.
  • To gain knowledge and understanding of and develop skills in designing and making prototypes of products.
  • To be able to evaluate and test their own and others’ work and strive to progress as designers.
  • To understand nutrition and develop skills in cooking.
