Inspiring, Rigorous, Practical, Creative, Imaginative
We are meeting the requirements of the 2014 curriculum whilst matching the learning to the individuality of each child.
Through the Design and Technology curriculum at Blaise Primary and Nursery School, children will have the opportunity to design, make and evaluate products. These products will be aimed at solving real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, whilst considering the needs, wants and values of ourselves and others.
Children will be afforded opportunities to take risks in their learning, develop their resourcefulness, and be innovative and enterprising as well as becoming increasingly ‘capable citizens.’
When relevant, specific links will be made with the following subjects
Explicit Curriculum Links
Mathematics: Measuring, Drawing, Scale, Shape
Science: Materials and their properties, Forces, Electricity
Computing: Programming, Monitoring, Control
Art: Drawing / Sketching, Aesthetics
History: Technological advancements in periods studied – events and people who have contributed to shaping the world as we know it
This list is not exhaustive - there may be relevant links with other areas dependent on the project undertaken
In addition, very strong links will be forged with certain Outdoor Learning activities
