Design and technology

At Alma, we understand that Design and Technology gives our children the opportunity to develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making products that have a purpose.

We believe it is important to nurture creativity and innovation through design, and by investigating products that are part of the world around us. Each key stage has a healthy food focus in which they design and make a healthy food product for a particular consumer.

We investigate, design and evaluate which gives us an understanding of what makes a good product. We achieve this by embedding skills from the EYFS to Year 6.

Art at Alma is taught through cross curricular topics in a creative and enriching way. This ensures children can draw inspiration from what is familiar to them and build on their existing knowledge.

Pupils are taught and encouraged to develop their own artistic skills through a range of different mediums: drawing, painting, sculpting and collage. Across the school, each art topic starts by exploring the features of an artist or style, building up the skills and ideas through the topic before producing a final piece, bringing all these techniques together.
