East Acton Primary School "Growing Together"

Design & Technology

Our Design & Technology curriculum inspires children, through a broad range of practical experiences, to create innovative designs and make functional products for different users. Children are equipped with the skills to identify real and relevant problems, critically evaluate existing products, innovate, design, and create solutions that answer a design brief. The children develop their skill through practical activities and use an increasing range of materials and tools as they progress through school. They are encouraged to plan their design and take into account the materials and the audience for their product. They reflect, evaluate, and improve on prototypes using design criteria throughout to support this design process. Opportunities are provided for children to evaluate key events and individuals who have helped shape the world of design, showing the real impact of design and technology on the wider environment and how it has shaped the world we live in. We intend for our curriculum to help inspire children to become the next generation of innovators and designers.
