Design Technology

Vision Statement

 

Our vision for Design Technology at St Edmund’s is for the curriculum to develop pupils’ creative, technical and practical skills for completing their everyday tasks confidently and successfully. At St Edmund’s, we recognise the importance of working together, developing communication skills and working independently. In Design Technology we provide opportunities for the pupils to develop their skills in designing and making their own prototypes and products. Pupils learn to work together in critiquing, evaluating, testing and comparing their project designs and further develop their communication so that they are able to articulate their views and ideas. Design technology experiences are used to equip pupils with the skills to operate successfully in the wider world.

If you would like to know more about the design technology curriculum at St Edmund's, please arrange an appointment with your child's teacher or Miss Rogers.

EYFS & KS1

Y1/2 Topic: Structures

 Year 1/2 started a DT unit working towards making their very own 'mini Little Hulton'.

At first they practised their cutting and fixing skills. Then they focused on their shaping and joining skills. They created roofs and chimneys and joined them together.

In following sessions they started to design their own buildings that they were going to create. They thought about what they would need in their 'mini Little Hulton' and the equipment needed to create their models. 

For their Parent Celebration, parents were invited to walk through Y1/2's very own 'mini Little Hulton'.
