Projects on a Page full pack of 21 planners

The Projects on a Page scheme of work was introduced in 2014 to help primary schools in England implement the National Curriculum for D&T in an imaginative way. Based on universal principles of effective teaching and learning in D&T, it is also a valuable resource for schools in other parts of the UK and further afield. This scheme of work has been developed by the D&T Association’s Primary Working Group in association with D&T primary consultants. It comprises 21 A3 size project planners that give scope for teachers to use their creativity and professional judgment, whilst ensuring the quality, integrity and rigour of children’s learning. Each planner has 20-step planning guidance and accompanying teaching tips and techniques, a glossary, an example of iterative design appropriate to the project, and practical advice on using resources, useful sketches and diagrams in a helpsheet format to support teachers delivering the project in the classroom. Also included are suggestions on class organisation, links to resources and a glossary of technical terminology related to the project.
