Design and Technology
Our Intent in Design and Technology
At Sharp Lane Primary School, we recognise the importance of DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY in every aspect of daily life.
Our intent is for our pupils to be ASPIRATIONAL so we encourage them to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
We want our children to BELIEVE in their own abilities and achievements so we give them opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and we encourage our children to become innovators and risk-takers.
Our children COMMIT themselves to their learning by applying their knowledge and skills to practical activities which they plan and evaluate at the end and throughout, making changes when needed to improve their work.
We allow our children to explore and DISCOVER by encouraging them to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.
