DT at Timbercroft
At Timbercroft, DT is delivered through cross curricular lessons, linking directly to the topics being taught. Design and Technology objectives are still very much the focus and time is taken to explain the Design and Technology learning outcomes. Teachers strive to present the children with relevant projects and the use of the Cornerstones cucrriculum means that the children can see a real purpose to the projects they are working on. Some of our most recent projects include:
- Writing recipes for, cooking and tasting some authentic Viking dishes
- Building tudor houses
- Making a memory box
- Designing and making popcorn packaging for the premier of our film
In the increasingly technological world in which we live we feel it is vital that children understand the importance of designing and making high-quality products. To this end we encourage them to be objective in their evaluations and critique their own ideas. Some of the schools 'Big Outcomes' include design and technology. For example, up cycling furniture to be auctioned, making cakes for a 'Teddy Bears Picnic' etc.
The new national curriculum has placed a greater emphasis on food and nutrition. Timbercroft are proud to announce our brand new learning kitchen is up and running and all year groups are using it to create culinary delights.
