All skills are informed by the Pathways to Write long term curriculum plan, which is directly linked to the national curriculum. All themes are sensitive to children’s interests and are led by the children’s curiosity for learning. The UHPS curriculum is centred and delivered around our intent of REACH: Relevant, Engaging, Aspirational, Creative and Holistic. We ensure that topics and skills are taught sequentially to ensure that children achieve the end of year expectations as well as maintaining links to previous learning.
In line with the national curriculum 2014, the DT curriculum at UHPS aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
- 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
- critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
- understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
