At Poppyfield Academy we provide a positive, caring environment, that ensures every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Our Design and Technology curriculum aims to inspire pupils to be innovative and creative thinkers who have an appreciation for the product design cycle through ideation, creation, and evaluation.


We want pupils to develop the confidence to take risks, through drafting design concepts, modelling, and testing and to be reflective learners who evaluate their work and the work of others. Through our curriculum, we aim to build awareness of the impact of design and technology on our lives and encourage pupils to become resourceful, enterprising citizens who will have the skills to contribute to future design advancements.


From the Early Years Foundation Stage children will have the opportunity to engage with Design and Technology and build upon their own experiences using a variety of materials and media. Children will begin to draw with increasing complexity, manipulate different materials and explore different textures. They will learn to construct with a purpose in mind and collaborate by sharing ideas, resources and skills.
