"Creativity is seeing what others do not see and thinking what no one else ever thought."

Albert Einstein


DT is taught as a discrete subject with links made to other subjects where appropriate.

We teach activities that match the objectives listed in the National Curriculums Statutory Requirements for Design Technology. As a school we use

the Kapow scheme which covers a range of skills and objectives across each year group.

At St Mary’s we want our pupils to develop designing, making and evaluating skills, both now and in the future. Our Design Technology curriculum comprises of 4 key areas:

  • Cooking and nutrition

  • Mechanisms

  • Structures

  • Textiles

Our Design Technology curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before.
