Design and Technology brings learning to life. It is a motivating context for discovering literacy, mathematics, science, art, PSHE and ICT. At St Joseph’s, Design and Technology education involves two important elements - learning about the designed and made world and how things work, and learning to design and make functional products for particular purposes and users. Through Design and Technology, we aim to provide opportunities for our pupils to develop their capabilities in these areas. By combining their design and making skills with technical knowledge and understanding, they will learn to create quality products. The inclusion of this subject in the thematic curriculum gives the children a context and a purpose for the product, bringing real world situations to the process.
