Design & Technology

At Rush Green School, we have developed our curriculum to give children opportunities to develop meaningful experiences of different strands of DT including textiles, cooking and nutrition, strengthening structures, electrical products and mechanical systems. Children will develop their understanding of the designing process. These skills of evaluating, making and designing are key skills. While technology may change over time, these stages of production will remain relevant. As children progress their skills and knowledge, they will be encouraged to be resilient, independent and to take risks with innovation and design decisions. By year 6, the curriculum will have provided the chance for all children to have a broad understanding of DT and the impact technology has on society. They will have started to develop life skills that they will continue to build on in the next stage of their life.
