Intent

At Willow Brook, we have designed a Design and Technology curriculum that has at its heart the intent to nurture creativity and innovation through design and exploring possible answers to the big questions that we face living in the world today. The cultural capital of the children will be enhanced by developing skills through collaborative work and problem-solving combined with the delivery of specific subject knowledge in design, materials, structures, mechanisms and electrical control.

These strands will combine to spark curiosity, with the curriculum designed to further develop our children into critical thinkers.

Children will leave Willow Brook ready and equipped for the next stage in their educational journey and it is through engaging with this D&T curriculum that they will be given the tools to display the necessary confidence and ambition to use and build on their learning outside of the classroom and set ambitious targets for their future selves.

We will deliver a curriculum that:

  • Facilitates creative learning that provides opportunities for the development of higher order thinking skills
  • Supports children working at all levels to access learning through scaffolding and providing challenges in order to create functional products aimed at the target audience
  • Challenges children to develop enquiry and research skills, promote analytical thinking when identifying the features, problems and solutions in product
