Design Technology

At St John’s CE Primary School our intent is to encourage children to foster an interest in designing and making, whilst developing their curiosity about how different technologies operate within the wider world around them. This allows children to utilise their own creativity and imagination to design, make and evaluate real-life products that have been carefully selected to make cross-curricular links.  From Reception to Year 6, children are immersed in progressive units of work which build their skills and knowledge and encourage them to ‘think like a designer’. Each unit follows a clear design process adhering to a strict design brief; through discussion and research, designing and making, evaluating and modifying their work, children record their achievements in individual booklets.

Pupils should be excited about the projects they are completing and innovative in their creative designs!  Have a look at some of wonderful photos in the gallery below to see some of the projects we have undertaken this year.

Please see our Design Technology Curriculum Intent document in the files below which outlines how we teach this subject at St John's.
