Design and Technology

"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works."

Steve Jobs 



DT at Uplands

At Uplands, we aim to provide children with the opportunity to use their imagination to design and make products with a variety of contexts. Our aim is to ensure that Design and Technology is creative and practical to provide children with the chance to problem solve and develop their own ideas individually and as part of a team. Children are taught a range of topics including mechanisms, textiles, food technology, structures and electrical systems (in Key Stage 2).

Our DT Curriculum

We have carefully mapped out our curriculum to ensure that we build on the skills, knowledge and vocabulary learnt in each unit.  We have picked out the small steps of knowledge from each unit that is needed to be able to complete the end of unit outcome.  These are the key points of learning that we want each child to retain from each unit of work.
