"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”
At St Mary’s, Design and Technology (DT) forms an important part of the curriculum. We believe DT stimulates creativity and imagination through problem solving and the production of quality products. We believe that it should be taught as an individual subject as well as incorporated into other curriculum lessons where appropriate.Children are introduced to a range of assignments where they design, make, disassemble, investigate and evaluate products using a range of tools and materials safely and appropriately.
Each area of DT is represented at different stages of the child’s education to provide a coherent scheme of work. The activities encourage co-operative learning, problem solving and discussion focusing on skills such as analysis, evaluation, prediction and forming hypotheses.
Below you will find an overview of what your child will be expected to learn in each of the Key Stages.

Progression in D/T will be assessed through work completed in pupils sketch books, displays, written work and photographic evidence. A level of ability and attitude to D/T is recorded on the child’s annual report to parents.
