Design Technology (DT)

Design and Technology at St. John’s Primary School should be an engaging, practical and purposeful subject which gives children first-hand experience of the key skills and processes needed in the production of everyday products.

The children will have the opportunity to:

  • Experience a range of products from different fields of design (textiles, construction, food)
  • Develop their understanding of the design process from research and conception to final products.
  • Explore and learn a range of key skills which can be easily transferred to their everyday life.
  • Be creative and imaginative in their designs.
  • Persevere to learn and apply new skills with confidence.
  • Become ‘problem solvers’ through their making activities.
  • Work collaboratively, respecting and understanding the opinions of others.
