Design Technology

We study a skills-based curriculum for Design and Technology linked with our themes. Where appropriate, it is linked with the Science or art. We focus on a different aspect of DT each term fitting in with our termly themed curriculum. These DT focuses include: textiles, food, mechanisms, structures and computer-linked design

Oak Class have been looking at the 7 Wonders of the World. They designed a place that they think would be wonderful on Paint on the computer. They then stuck them in a box and used dowel and string to make a moving part.

Sycamore Class are making pyramids out of dowel linked with their work on the Ancient Egyptians and our DT focus on structures.  They made frames from card and prototypes out of art straws first.

Please see below for our Progression of Knowledge and Skills documents for DT.
