ABOUT THE COURSE
The new programmes of study for D&T provide a rigorous, inspiring and technically challenging curriculum that will equip children for the future. Crucially, they also build on existing good quality practice in primary schools. This interactive, full day course will provide subject leaders and classroom teachers with a range of practical strategies to support the introduction of the new curriculum in key stages 1 and 2. Gareth Pimley – who was a major contributor to the final draft of the programmes of study – will help you to build the confidence and expertise needed to tackle some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the new curriculum, including:
• ensuring an authentic D&T experience for children
• securing coverage and progression
• making strong links to other subjects
• working within a range of relevant contexts
• ensuring the process of designing and making is iterative
• encouraging innovative designing
• learning about key events and individuals in design and technology in KS2
• using higher level drawing skills in KS2
• understanding and using the concept of a system in KS2
• addressing the new requirements on cooking and nutrition
Delegates will also have the opportunity to evaluate ‘Projects on a Page’ the new primary national scheme of work for D&T.
