Design & Technology at Orchard Meadow
At Orchard Meadow pupils will develop into creative thinkers by practising and applying skills throughout the years. They will draw on prior subject knowledge to improve their products year on year.
The curriculum draws on
1. Being confident in creating aking your design come to life
3. Being able to discuss improvements in final products
4. Understanding the importance of nutrition
The curriculum allows discussion of current products and the freedom to think ‘out of the box’ and be creative. Throughout the key stages children explore and develop skills progressively to allow them to design, build, test and improve their products.
