'Believe, Achieve, Succeed'
Being a Designer
' Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep.'
At Millbrook, through our teaching of Design Technology we aim to encourage our children to be creative problem-solvers, who can work successfully on their own and as part of a team. Our curriculum is planned so that pupils use the 'planning and evaluation' process carefully and systematically to achieve their goals. Our Design Technology projects allow pupils to apply skills from across the curriculum to design, make and evaluate products that solve real-life and meaningful problems linked to their overall topic themes.
Through our DT curriculum, we support children to be curious and active learners with the confidence to ‘have a go,’ take risks and the resilience to keep trying with a project when challenges occur or things go wrong. We also aim, wherever possible, to link work to other areas of the curriculum such as Mathematics, Science, and Computing so that pupils to notice connections in their learning across the curriculum.
