At Middleton Cheney Primary Academy we aim to develop children's creativity, technical and practical expertise so that they can perform everyday tasks confidently. It is important that children are given opportunities to build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills so they can create high-quality models and products. Pupils will also learn to evaluate their designs. We hope that when children leave us they are equipped to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
Our intent is to provide a rich Design and Technology curriculum across all year groups. We aim to teach at least two units of Design and Technology in all year groups. These units focus on: food technology and nutrition, electricity, mechanisms, structures and textiles. Wherever possible, cross curricular links are made to ensure children get the most out of their learning experiences.
