At Lyminster, Design and Technology (D.T.) forms an important part of the curriculum. We believe D.T. education stimulates creativity and imagination through problem solving and the production of quality products. We believe that it should be taught as an individual subject as well as incorporated other curriculum lessons where appropriate. Using creativity and imagination, pupils will design and make models and products in a range of contexts. As well as learning a range of subject knowledge, including cookery, design and technology will allow pupils to become resourceful, innovative and enterprising. They will evaluate the past and present use of D.T., and develop an understanding of the practical impact of the subject on the modern world. Progression in D.T will be assessed through work completed in pupils sketch books, displays, written work and photographic evidence. A level of ability and attitude to D,T. is recorded on the child’s annual report to parents.
