At Sylvester Primary Academy we provide all children with a broad and balanced curriculum which prepares them for life beyond primary education. We encourage children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. It can be found in many of the object’s children use each day and is a part of children’s experiences.
Design and Technology encourages children to learn to think creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as part of a team. At Sylvester the Design and Technology curriculum combines skills, knowledge, concepts and values to enable children to tackle real problems. It can improve analysis, problem solving, practical capability and evaluation skills. We strive to link work to other disciplines such as maths, science, computing and art. The children are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.
