Here at St. James’ we just love being creative and using our imaginations during Design Technology lessons. Pupils design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. We cover a wide variety of engaging topics such as: bridge building, shelters, jewellery making, pottery, water wheels and puppets. In addition, pupils have lots of opportunities throughout the year to cook and bake.
- To help pupils develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
- To enable pupils build and apply their knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
- To teach pupils how to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
