Design Technology

At Wimboldsley Community Primary School, to develop knowledge and understanding in Design and Technology, children learn to think creatively to solve problems and develop a natural curiosity alongside extending their understanding and skills base. 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. Our Key Strands include:  Food and Nutrition, Structures, Moving Mechanisms, Textiles  and Electrical Systems

I have been working at Wimboldsley Community Primary School for a year and during this time I have led the subject of design and technology which I thoroughly enjoy. Miss Copley is a specialist in the area of design and technology with a background in making theatre props and sets and her knowledge has been invaluable in the development of the design and technology curriculum. As a federated school with William Stockton Primary School, I have also gained networking opportunities with staff such as Mrs Hillstead and Mrs Barr, who lead design and technology there and this has been incredibly valuable in gaining and developing my own knowledge and expertise.
As DT lead, I have the pleasure of visiting classrooms to see DT in action, and I have the opportunity to speak to the children about exciting experiences and learning opportunities that are delivered across the school. I am available to offer supportive discussions with the teaching staff to discuss any areas of support which need addressing and I have regular discussions with our headship team on how the teaching and learning of DT can be developed.

Our DT curriculum is clearly mapped across each year group to ensure progression of skills, whilst delivering knowledge that is built upon from previous learning. Clear and concise end points are planned carefully in order for the children to become capable and enthusiastic historians.
