Design and Technology at Riverside Primary School 2018-19
In our school the study of design technology is valued as a way for children to develop valuable life skills, preparing them for the future. Children are taught specific skills through a variety of projects each term as set out in the curriculum overview. Skills are re-visited throughout the year to ensure children’s knowledge is secure.
The children are encouraged and supported to challenge themselves and work at a greater depth by increasing their technical vocabulary and developing their knowledge of mechanisms, structure and forces so that they can explain how their products work.Their innovative ideas are shared weekly during awards assembly and throughout the year during STEM days and challenges.
