Design Technology

At St Thomas' we identify that D&T does not follow a linear learning process. Therefore, our curriculum enables a constantly evolving learning process where children are able to generate ideas, create prototypes, investigate existing products and evaluate throughout. We take inspiration from the D&T Association, using their 'Projects on a Page' to form the basis of our planning. Each project involves practical application of the skills with meaningful and interesting contexts.



Children will learn about key figures and design work and become increasingly more familiar with those who have successfully developed creative, technical and practical expertise within design.


They will also have the opportunity to:

- Visit local and national galleries and museums

- Experience visits and visitors to become increasingly familiar with design career opportunities available in the work place
