Carr Junior School



 Our Design and Technology approach enables children to thrive in our rapidly changing world by encouraging them to become independent, creative problem solvers. We want children to think as individuals and as part of a team. The impact of our Design and Technology approach is that pupils design, make and evaluate purposeful products and are proud of their creations. Children’s skills are transferable across the curriculum and their knowledge used in everyday life. 


We aim for the children to:

  • Be curious learners, ask questions, challenge their own ideas and extend their knowledge and understanding. 

  • Identify needs and opportunities and to respond to them by developing a range of ideas and by making products and systems

  • Reflect on and evaluate past and present products and technology, its uses and its impact


How we implement our DT curriculum:

  • Through our curriculum sequence of launch event, big idea and landing event

  • A learning sequence of Design, Make, Evaluate  

  • Learning journeys in scrap books reflect what is being taught accompanied by relevant vocabulary, diagrams, and photos 

  • STEM week projects developing opportunities for challenge and innovation

  • A creative approach using a range of resources
