Design and technology is an inspiring, creative and practical subject. Using creativity and imagination, pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary the children acquire a broad range of subject and technical knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art when designing, making and evaluating their creations. Pupils learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
