At Ashby Fields Primary School, we teach the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an exploratory process of designing and making through a variety of creative and practical activities.  The key elements are: Design, Make and Review. The National curriculum allows for the progression of skills meaning children are continually building upon and using their Technical Knowledge when completing projects.

We also invite children to take part in our annual DT competitions where they can apply knowledge and skills that they have learnt and showcase projects to the rest of the school.

At Ashby Fields Primary School our Design Technology curriculum results in the acquisition of knowledge and skills through direct teaching and  stimulating projects that facilitate the children’s enthusiasm for learning. We incorporate cross curricular links to other subjects across the school, designing products that solve real and relevant problems.  The children leave Ashby Fields Primary School, equipped with essentials skills and knowledge that will enable them to be ready for Key Stage 3 and for life as an adult in the wider world.
