At Belmont we want all our pupils to have the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in design, structures, mechanisms, electrical control and a range of materials, including food. Design and Technology helps the children to use other subjects on the curriculum, such as Maths and English, in a fun manner and in context, making them easier to digest and more understandable to younger primary age pupils. DT gives children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. We feel it is vital to nurture creativity and innovation through design, and by exploring the designed and made world in which we all live and work.
Children will be able to develop their motor skills, language skills, social skills, decision-making, risk-taking, inventiveness and creativity from working together. This means they will become increasingly competent, confident and resilient. DT provides challenges for learners at all levels. We customise our curriculum to meet the unique needs of our children at Belmont, providing opportunities for enrichment and enhancement through an intellectually and creative curriculum.
Details of the DT curriculum including how it is taught and evaluated along with how we support children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities can found in the documents below.
