At TAB, we aim to encourage creativity, nurture innovation and develop life skills within Design and Technology lessons. Learning is brought to life through the practical application of knowledge and skill taught within the entire curriculum. Our Design and Technology lessons provide children with the opportunity to design, make and evaluate their own products; whilst developing an understanding of the technical knowledge underpinning the Design and Technology curriculum.
The TAB way underpins the learning in our Design and Technology lessons:
Children are respectful of the specialist room and resources within it.
Children listen to their teacher and peers when designing / developing a product.
Children persevere when they are developing new skills; including sewing, constructing and evaluating.
Children respond positively to the constructive feedback given to them from their teachers and peers.
Children learn how to use a range of tools safely and with increased independence.
Children work together to develop their skills.
Children celebrate the successes of their peers.
At TAB, we are extremely proud of our Specialist Design and Technology room containing state of the art safety equipment. In addition to this, we are extremely fortunate to have a specialist Design and Technology teacher, who leads all the Design and Technology lessons in Upper School (Year 5 and 6) and some of the lessons in Lower School (Year 3 and 4).
Design and Technology at TAB makes purposeful links to the the following curriculum areas:
As a school, we currently offer two after school clubs which relate to design and technology:
