Key stage 1

Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils should be taught the

knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing

and making. They should work in a range of relevant contexts [for example, the home and

school, gardens and playgrounds, the local community, industry and the wider

environment].

When designing and making, pupils should be taught to:

Design

  • design purposeful, functional, appealing products for themselves and other users

based on design criteria

  • generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through talking, drawing,

templates, mock-ups and, where appropriate, information and communication

technology

Make

  • select from and use a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for

example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing]

  • select from and use a wide range of materials and components, including construction

materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their characteristics

Evaluate

  • explore and evaluate a range of existing products
  • evaluate their ideas and products against design criteria

Technical knowledge

  • build structures, exploring how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable
  • explore and use mechanisms [for example, levers, sliders, wheels and axles], in their

products.

Cooking and Nutrition

  • use the basic principles of a healthy and varied diet to prepare dishes
  • understand where food comes from.

When designing and making, pupils should be taught to:

Design

  • use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional,

appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups

  • generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated

sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes, pattern pieces and

computer-aided design

Make          

  • select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks

[for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing], accurately

  • select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction

materials, textiles and ingredients, according to their functional properties and aesthetic

qualities

Evaluate

  • investigate and analyse a range of existing products
  • evaluate their ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the

views of others to improve their work

  • understand how key events and individuals in design and technology have helped

shape the world

Technical knowledge

  • apply their understanding of how to strengthen, stiffen and reinforce more complex

structures

  • understand and use mechanical systems in their products [for example, gears, pulleys,

cams, levers and linkages]

  • understand and use electrical systems in their products [for example, series circuits

incorporating switches, bulbs, buzzers and motors]

  • apply their understanding of computing to program, monitor and control their products.

Cooking and Nutrition

  • understand and apply the principles of a healthy and varied diet
  • prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques
