Fonthill Primary Academy

  1. Curriculum
  2. DT


DT develops the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.

We use Kapow which ensures DT is taught progressively and builds on key skills and concepts.

Remember-DT lessons are taught as part of a unit which allows learning to build and supports the children in remembering key information.

Explain-children are always encouraged to explain their thinking. A key element of DT is children evaluating their own learning which supports excellent speaking and listening.

Apply and Develop-the learning builds across the unit towards a high-quality final product which allows the children to apply and develop the skills and knowledge they are acquired.

Share-we look for opportunities for children to share their learning with a real-life audience (other classes, parents, external)
