Design & Technology
DT Vision Statement
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” – Albert Einstein
‘Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.’(National Curriculum, 2013)
At Linton Mead our aim is to ensure that children experience a wide and varied D&T curriculum, where they have opportunities to use their imagination and creativity to solve real and relevant problems.
Through the process of designing, making and evaluating, pupils are encouraged ‘become autonomous and creative problem solvers, as individuals and members of a team.’
