Design and Technology

DT Policy 2017

Through Design and Technology, Headfield children are encouraged to identify, examine and solve practical problems and to make existing situations better. Children are encouraged to be inventive, using a range of materials and tools, thus developing, modifying and evaluating their ideas through a series of projects.

Design and technology is one of the pupils favourite subjects   At Headfield we give the children as many practical opportunities as possible and make D&T meaningful by getting the children involved in real projects that have a purpose. Some of the interesting projects involve, bridge building, cams, moving vehicles and money containers etc.

All Year 4 children take part in the Primary Engineering competition, which involves making an electrical vehicle. This is organised by Thornhill Community Science College

The topics covered are as follows and are in line with NC requirements.

 

Assessment takes place informally through end of topic assessments sheets (I can statements). SEN and G&T children are provided with differentiated work and opportunities to make sure that their needs are met
