Design and Technology at Beaminster St Mary’s Academy

 

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject that encourages children to learn to think and intervene creatively to solve problems, both as individuals and as members of a team.

 

At Beaminster St Mary’s, we encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts.

 

We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other topics in the wider curriculum and to disciplines such as mathematics, science, computing and art.  This gives the learning purpose and relevance to the children.

Through a variety of imaginative, relative and practical activities we teach the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an interactive process of designing, making and evaluating.

 

All of our subjects include the same curriculum drivers, these are:

Curiosity

  • We aspire for pupils to embrace challenge with a growth mindset and show curiosity, independence and resilience in all that they do.

Admiration

  • We aspire for pupils to become wise, respectful learners.

Vocabulary

  • We aspire for pupils to become emotionally mature with a depth of language that enables them to share ideas effectively.

Worldly

  • We aspire for pupils to become emotionally literate, tolerant, and appreciative of an ever-changing global environment.
