Design Technology at Outwood
At Outwood primary school, the children will children to learn to think creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators, linked with the school’s acorn values.
At Outwood primary, emerging skills in D&T are weaved into daily tasks in the Early Years where pupils have daily opportunities of cutting, joining and creating a range of projects. These skills are built on in wholly creative ways across Key Stage One where regular opportunities are found to teach the subject. Here you will find baking, cooking, sewing, vehicles and woodwork to name a few examples. D&T becomes more technical across Key Stage 2 with the use of more challenging textile projects and designing and creating food.
