Where possible, DT is taught through a range of real-life contexts where children are taught the knowledge and skills needed to engage in the process of designing and making. These lessons are, where possible, linked to other STEM subjects such as Science and Mathematics. Each phase within the school focuses on the skills of textiles, food, structures and materials following the Leechpool Skills Ladder. As the children progress through the school, they are presented with opportunities to develop these skills, as similar topics are revisited and built upon. Each lesson builds on the previous and the children’s skills are improved upon throughout each topic. It is clear to see the progression of skills throughout the school through the range and quality of work produced by each year group. The subject leader monitors the impact of our provision through regular monitoring that includes book looks, photographic evidence and listening to the voice of our pupils.
