Design Technology and Maker Curriculum

Our Design Technology curriculum has been developed in partnership with the University of Sheffield (see Maker pages). Teachers plan from a clear progression of skills and knowledge. Children learn skills for employment in the future, developing their subject knowledge and problem solving and team building skills. They are supported to be innovative and creative with their DT skills and to apply their knowledge to their independent designs.

DT Progression

Children learn a clear progression of skills in design and technology as they move from foundation stage to Year 6 through:

  • Developing, planning and communicating ideas
  • Working with tools, equipment, materials and components to make quality products
  • Evaluating processes and products.
