Design & Technology Intent
t is our intent at Giles Brook to provide an ever-improving provision for Design and Technology for children at our school; one which provides a practical and creative journey for all, based upon building problem solving skills within a cross-curricular approach. Strong links are being formed between Core and Foundation subjects such as mathematics, science, computing and art so that children can purposefully use skills within different contexts which will challenge and extend their learning.
We strive to offer children the chance to use creative thinking and design within a defined purpose and tangible outcome. We intend that our children will be encouraged to take risks when designing and making their products.
Lessons will be hands on and engaging, with the children having access to a variety of resources and materials. They will be encouraged to think critically in order to evaluate their products.
