Design Technology

At St Peter and St Paul CE VA Primary School we value Design Technology as a subject that allows our children to use and show their creativity and imagination, whilst developing technical and practical skills.  Over their primary years our children develop a broad range of skills and knowledge, which will be essential in later life.

Our children are able to work with a variety of materials and use a variety of tools and equipment whether designing and sewing textiles, making evermore complex structures or understanding and using electrical systems.

Our Design Technology curriculum allows our children to apply and consolidate their learning in science, maths, computing and art.  It also teaches the children resilience and perseverance as most topics include a high level of problem solving.

We are lucky to have a fully equiped Design Technology Room, which includes kitchen facilities and a range of Design Technology resources.  Our children have a lot of opportunity to cook and study nutrition both through curricular and extra-curricular activities.  Our Creative Themes often inlcude the preparation and consumption of food from all over the world and our kitchen is always a very busy place during 'Christain Aid Week', when children create and make food items to sell.  Our staff enjoy sharing their own enthusiasm for cooking with the children and our after school cooking clubs are always very popular.

Home Learning Projects often include a Design Technology element and children are proud to share their outcomes through displays around the school; these celebrate the collaboration of parents and children working together at home.
