Design Technology

At St Cuthbert’s we aim to deliver the Design and Technology curriculum using practical and creative approaches. Children solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, using a cross curricular approach projects involve using mathematics, science, computing and art. We encourage children to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

Our aims

  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world
  • build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.
