Danesholme Infant Academy

Be a Designer at DIA


Design Technology Intent

 We intend to create a design technology curriculum which encompasses progressive subject knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum Design Technology Programmes of study and the EYFS framework. We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design, make and evaluate products that develop key DT skills within a variety of contexts; themed based learning, whole school projects and competitions. We foster pupil's creativity and promote a growth mindset by celebrating and valuing the thought process, whilst encouraging an evaluative process throughout. Our inclusive curriculum encourages children to be critical thinkers and explore the realms of DT through activities and careers and employability events that will broaden children's cultural capital of careers within the DT sector.
