Design & Technology
Welcome to Design & Technology at St Nicolas and St Mary CE Primary School!
Here you will find our design & technology curriculum map as well as design & technology milestones detailing the journey our children make in design & technology from year 1 to year 6. The wide range of knowledge and skills that design & technology encompasses gives all our pupils creative and innovative experiences in this subject throughout their learning journey at our school.
Our Design & Technology Vision
Design & technology inspires and challenges all learners, including disadvantaged and/or pupils with SEND, to use both cognitive and physical skills in a variety of contexts. Children will be taught how to design, make, and evaluate their work. We seek to give all children the understanding and practical knowledge to create exciting projects, using a range of tools and techniques, from sewing thread to sawing wood.
They will be given the opportunity to take controlled risks in a safe environment and learn from mistakes on their journey. Children will work together to create memorable designs and develop a critical understanding of their impact on daily life and the wider world (e.g. recycling and the local community, industry and the environment).
