Our Curriculum Intent for Langton Primary School

At Langton, we believe in Education for Life. We see our children thrive in our caring small village school set in a beautiful location on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds.

Our aim is to ensure our children have aspirations and are well preparedfor the future – to move into adult life with confidence in order to be part of the national and global community. Likewise, we make the most of our local environment and encourage parental and community engagement. Through this, we nurture their personal characteristics such as strength, resilienceand enthusiasm for learning. We teach an engaging topic-based curriculum which provides opportunities for ALL our children to experience the world beyond the classroom – to share life experiencesand gain an understanding of cultural diversityin an ever-changing world.

Impact of the Design and technology Curriculum

*All pupils are given opportunities to extend their learning in curriculum ‘topic areas’ in a creative but purposeful way

*They are enthusiastic with regard to their learning and become increasingly more skilled and accurate in measuring, planning & using tools

* Children are motivated by the teaching of safety and key skills and the opportunities available in D & T 

*As children move through the school, they can draw upon previous learning and skills taught and mastered. They begin to attempt more complex designs and make more individual decisions

*Pupils resilience and independence develops. They start to see the importance of researching and modelling to alleviate errors and make improvements.

* In E.Y.F.S and K.S.1 play based activities will help develop knowledge and skills (such as junk modelling, variation in malleable materials and use of tolls to develop dexterity and strength). 

* All children make good or better progress and are confident and resilient learners
