Intent

 At Valley View, we strive for children to become reflective learners, developing resilience and perseverance as individuals and collaboratively as part of a team. By using an iterative approach to problem solving and thinking in imaginative and creative ways, we will prepare our children for an increasingly complex world.

 Through our ambitious and progressive DT curriculum, children will be challenged as they develop their knowledge, skills and curiosity around how and why things work. Children will develop an understanding about how all products have to be designed for a purpose and how these shape their own lives and can be used improve the lives of others in their communities. As our children increase their understanding and appreciation of how technology impacts our world, they will begin to consider the needs, wants and values and those of others.

 At Valley View, we want our children to be proud of the products that they design and make with sustainability at the centre of everything we do. Through becoming more environmentally conscious, children will be prepared for an ever-changing world and how they can make a deep and meaningful impact on the world around them through design technology.

 We aim to give children the opportunity to display their learning for others to see whilst being respectful and showing a positive attitude towards others and become socially confident when voicing opinions
