Design and Technology
At Lydiate Primary School we provide a high-quality Design and Technology curriculum through well-planned and resourced projects and experiences. We recognise children need opportunities to become future innovators who will help to inspire and develop our rapidly changing and thriving world.
Design Technology is a process through which children learn and practise new skills and techniques, and apply new and previous knowledge to the designs and creation of their own work product(s). Emphasis is on the learning process rather than the end product.
Through our Design and Technology curriculum, we encourage our children to develop and express their imagination and creativity in a variety of contexts when designing and making. We help them to become independent and resilient learners in order to be able to tackle the problems or issues they face in their DT projects. We strive to make real and relevant links to learning with other subject areas such as: Mathematics, Science, Computing, English and Art.
Primarily at Lydiate Primary School we aim to make Design and Technology an exciting, inspiring and practical subject that allows all of our pupils to recognise the endless possibilities for their creativity and problem solving.
