Design and Technology at FPJS
At FPPF we value Design and Technology. Design and technology is an inspiring and practical subject. Using creativity, curiosity and imagination, pupils design and make products that link to the wider curriculum and broader world within a variety of contexts, considering their own needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, independent and resilient citizens. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the future.
How we teach Design Technology at FPJS
We have carefully crafted our curriculum using resources, ideas and training from STEM, D&TA, Oak Academy, KAPOW and Mary Myatt. Alongside the projects, there are additional opportunities for Design & technology through linked learning concepts and knowledge that cross over with Science, Maths, Art, History, Geography or Computing; as well as linking to wider world concepts such as conservation, sustainability and eco awareness.
All projects have a clear Design Brief which also acts as a purposeful hook. Through sequencing and clear progression of the DESIGN-MAKE-EVALUATE knowledge and expectations, children learn the processes needed to complete the projects and be KS3 ready.
