Art and Design, Design Technology

At Harris Primary Academy Orpington we teach Design Technology ensuring the children can go through the design process from understanding design brief to evaluating the end product. In Art they will learn about a skill or an artist, produce an idea for their final piece, create it and then evaluate it.  

Art

Children see before they speak, make marks before they write, build before they walk but the children’s ability to appreciate and interpret these things is influenced by the quality of their art, craft and design education. That is why Art has been integrated into our broad and balanced curriculum so that we can teach it to a high standard. All of the artwork that the children will create is linked to the different books that they will be reading in each topic. The children will gain various skills by being exposed to different art media throughout the school e.g. printing, sculpture, painting, weaving, drawing and collage. The curriculum has been revised so that it is be fully inclusive of all of the changes in the new National Curriculum.


Design Technology

Design and Technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, our pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. All of the children’s projects have been linked to the books and the topics that the children will be studying in that term. The children cover a wide range of skills from learning how to sew textiles to cooking food products. The Design and Technology curriculum has been updated to make sure that it follows the new National Curriculum so that the new skills are covered. 

 Cooking and Nutrition

Cooking and Nutrition is taught alongside Design Technology when the children have to design and make a food product for a client. We have also planned in opportunities when the children can cook for festivals or special occasions for example, Diwali, Christmas or bonfires night. We feel it is vitally important that all of the children know about healthy eating, where our food comes from and how to cook as these are skills that they will need all throughout life.
