Design & Technology
Design and Technology Intent:
At St Marthas', we provide a complete Design & Technology experience that allows children do develop both practical skills and the theory behind designing and evaluating because we believe that high-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation. It is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject that encourages children to think and intervene creatively to solve problems both as individuals and as members of a team. At St Marthas', we encourage children to use their creativity and imagination, to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. Throughout their time here we create relevant and purposeful links between our DT work, and the other curriculum subjects. The children are also given opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness and are encouraged to become innovators and risk-takers.
