Design and Technology is a very exciting subject where children get to become designers, inventors and engineers. It is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject, that unlocks the creativity and imagination within all of our pupils. All children engage in designing and making products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, whilst acquiring a broad range of subject knowledge taught progressively through the year groups.
At St Joseph's we ensure children have the opportunity to develop their design, making and evaluating skills through a wide range of DT projects. The curriculum map for DT is built to ensure children experience and develop a wide range of skills, covering all areas of the DT.
We want to ensure that our pupils have all the skills required to achieve high standards in their DT creations, therefore basic skills such as cutting out, measuring and drawing accurately are taught and reinforced right through the school.
