Sunnyside Primary Academy

Design Technology

DT Curriculum Intent

Design and Technology makes an essential contribution to society, drawing on a broad range of subject knowledge.  We aim to teach our pupils to be resourceful, innovate and enterprising. 


At Sunnyside, design technology uses creativity and imagination, children design and make produces that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of context, considering their own and others’ needs, want and values.


Children acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Furthermore, children learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.


Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology projects, children develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world. Sunnyside children develop and understanding of how design and technology makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.


Children build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users. They will also critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
