Design and Technology

At Manor Park Academy, the Design and Technology curriculum teaches children the knowledge and skills to enable them to tackle real life problems; it can improve analysis, problem solving, practical capability and evaluation skills.  Our DT curriculum ensures full coverage of the National Curriculum and to ensure strong progress is made, we link learning in DT to learning in other subjects such as mathematics, science, computing and art to ensure children are deepening their understanding as they progress through the school. 

The curriculum for design and technology ensures that all pupils:

  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world;
  • build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users;
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others;
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook..
