How Design Technology is taught at Church Lench CE First School
At Church Lench C E Frist School Design Technology has been planned to ensure that children use their creativity and imagination to solve real and relevant problems and design and make interesting and inspiring products. Design Technology links closely with science, maths, art and computing, where children can draw upon these areas to assist them with their ideas and designs. At Church Lench C E First School we have chosen to use the Kapow Scheme of work which we adapt to suit the needs of our pupils. By the time pupils leave Church Lench they will have acquired a good knowledge of becoming resourceful, innovative designers who understand the impact of design technology on the world and daily life.
All our classes block Design Technology to ensure that children can fully immerse themselves in the design process which includes, research, design, making and evaluating. Depending upon the design task these can be DT days or weeks.
