Design and Technology

Design and Technology at Nine Acres Primary School
Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Design and Technology encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.
At Nine Acres, we encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.

Design and Technology  Statement:

Articulate - Our DT curriculum is ambitious and gives our pupils opportunities for both independence and resilience. Through a rigorous design process, children experience the various disciplines of DT including mechanisms, textiles, food and hygiene, structures and electrical systems. 


Passionate - Our children have opportunities to make links to other disciplines of learning, such as science and art, through our technology curriculum which empowers them to take ownership of the designing and making process.  Through our immersive and memorable experiences, they become committed and passionate designers working towards a purposeful and authentic outcome. 


Persuasive - Through an emphasis on evaluation and purpose, children can explain their decision process within the context of Design and Technology. The emphasis we place on evaluation, and its importance to the design process helps us to strive for excellence. 


Positively influence the world around us - Our curriculum has a foundation of authentic contexts, where children experience purposeful problem solving. They are encouraged to make innovative design decisions, leading to functional products.
