At Ghyllgrove Primary School we are committed to delivering a curriculum that is accessible to all and believe that Design and Technology is vital in developing pupils who are fit for the fast paced and dynamic world of the 21st Century. Design and Technology allows pupils to become inspiring, free-thinking learners who are self-motivated and confident to work independently and as part of a team. We aim to ensure that they use their creativity and innovation to break the rules and become problem solvers who are not afraid to make mistakes but instead learn from them. Through a variety of block lessons and drop a days, pupils will be making something, for someone, for a reason. Exploration of existing products, creativity in design, skill and accuracy in production and thoughtful evaluation will be facilitated during lessons allowing children to produce purposeful products that meet the needs of their intended user.
