Curriculum Intent- Design Technology
At Willen we aim to offer a progressive Design Technology education, underpinned by the topics that the children are learning about, giving the children a purpose for their learning. We aim to inspire children to become architects, engineers, designers and chefs! This is supported by learning about famous people within this field alongside their topic. Children undertake DT units of work that are blocked as units of Linked Learning to allow them to be fully immersed in their learning. Children follow a process of designing , building and evaluating a range of high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. The curriculum builds on the skills and knowledge that the children acquire.
Our well equipped DT room allows the children the opportunity to develop their cooking skills through understanding and applying the principles of nutrition, seasonality, and an understanding of how food is reared, farmed and processed.
