Design Technology at Eastrop
At Eastrop, our Design Technology leader is Mrs Higgins.
Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. High-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.
Design Technology Vision
At Eastrop, our Design Technology lessons are based around a chosen theme for the term. Using a scheme called PlanBee, teachers are provided with support for the planning, sequencing and resourcing of high quality Design Technology lessons. These provide a clear investigate, design, make and evaluate model.
