Design and Technology
Our Intent for Design and Technology at Abbot Alphege Academy
At Abbot Alphege Academy, our intention is to inspire children’s fascination with designing and making. Our curriculum aims to inspire children to be innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle through ideation, creation and evaluation. We want our children to develop the confidence to be risk takers in DT, through drafting design ideas and concepts, modelling and testing, and to be reflective learners who evaluate their own work and the work of others.
Through our curriculum, supported by the Kapow Scheme Units of Work, we aim to build an awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage children to become resourceful, enterprising citizens which will have the skills to contribute to the future of design and technology.

The document will tell you all about the overview of what children will study, what knowledge they will learn and the skills that they will develop. There is also more detailed information about the specific units of work the children will cover, and the associated vocabulary they will learn.
We use the Kapow Scheme to support our work in Design and Technology.
