Design Technology the Seahouses Way
To cultivate an enthusiasm for lifelong learning through a curriculum which reflects our rural and coastal context, adapting to the needs of our children- locally, nationally and globally.
At Seahouses Primary, our Design Technology curriculum encourages pupils to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team.
We expose our children to a range of relevant stimuli and offer practical opportunities to design and create functional products. Pupils are taught to look for innovative design opportunities and to respond to them by developing a range of ideas and making a range of products.
DT at Seahouses Primary is linked to areas of learning, such as science, history, geography and maths to ensure meaningful and contextual learning where children can develop skills to design, make and evaluate products for a specific need or purpose. DT education at Seahouses Primary school involves children learning about the world we live in and developing a wide range of skills through designing and making.
Our pupils reflect on and evaluate both past and present design and technology, comment on its uses and effectiveness; and are encouraged to become the next generation of innovators and inventors.
An on site, custom made, cookery school offers the perfect location to hone food technology skills as pupils use a specially equipped kitchen to design and make a range of products.
As a school we work with the Design Technology Association to further support quality design, engineering and technological understanding in school and ensure that we remain fully up to date with the very best thought, evidence and pedagogy.
