Subject Leader: Mr A Rogers
At Baguley Hall Primary School we believe Design and Technology prepares children to take part in the development of today’s rapidly changing world. Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. We live in a technological age, surrounded by artefacts and systems which have been produced, designed and made for us by other humans working together in a complex range of activities. Through reflecting and evaluating past and present design and technology, our children will develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
“High- quality design and technology education makes and essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation”. (The National Curriculum 2014).
Design Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. At Baguley Hall Primary School we aim to engage, challenge and inspire the children through our Design Technology Curriculum. Our DT curriculum evokes creative thinking, develops knowledge and understanding of what is required through the design process, and teaches the new skills the children will need when making their design for the first time. Design Technology projects are often made cross curricular - linking to other subjects taught. At Baguley Hall Primary, we want to allow children to aspire to be more through creating opportunities for them in the wider world. Through the DT curriculum, children should be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to enable them to create a range of structures, mechanisms, textiles, electrical systems and food products with a real life purpose.
