At Hasland Infant School we will teach children to understand how products are designed and made.
Our Design and Technology curriculum is designed to keep up with and reflect an ever changing world. It is our intention to enable the children to move with these changes and be the people that influence change in the future.
Through design and technology our children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge. They draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, food and nutrition, engineering, computing and art as part of the Design and Technology curriculum.
Design and Technology enables the children’s ideas to come to life. As designers they explore new techniques. They problem solve. They evaluate to improve their own and other people’s ideas and products. They learn to take risks. They experience trial and error and learn from making mistakes. Ultimately our children will become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
Our Design and Technology curriculum will enable our children to:
Draw on their own and other people's experiences to generate ideas.
Develop their design ideas through discussion, observation, drawing and modelling.
Identify a target audience for what they intend to design and make based on a design criteria.
Make templates and mock ups of their ideas in card and paper or using ICT.
Select, name and use tools and materials safely.
Evaluate their work against their design criteria.

The Year 2 children were very excited when a police dog arrived in their classroom ! He told us that he didn’t have a police force to work for so we became a police force and he worked for us. We then recruited our own police dogs and designed and made a uniform for them.
