Design & Technology – curriculum information

Our vision, at Broadacre, is to inspire designers and creators of the future. We aim to inspire curiosity and creativity within our children, that encourages them to solve real problems using innovative ideas. Through following a clear and sequenced design process, which sees them investigate, refine their skills, design, make and evaluate their products, our children are motivated to become resourceful and imaginative thinkers.

We will provide all pupils with a broad range of opportunities through the three Design and Technology strands; construction, textiles and food technology. We aim for our children to leave Broadacre with not only the practical skills acquired from D&T, but also personal skills such as problem solving and risk taking, providing them with solid foundations to build upon.

As designers and creators, children at Broadacre will:

  • Be encouraged to use their creativity to think of new and innovative ideas.
  • Be given the tools and skills needed to expand on their ideas by making products and improving on them.
  • Be equipped with important practical and personal skills.
