Design and Technology
Our Curriculum Intent for design and technology
Live: Design and Technology is an inspiring and practical subject requiring precision and meticulous attention to detail. At Our Lady of Lourdes, we enable children to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and successfully.
Love: It is our intention for children at Our Lady of Lourdes School to develop an interest and love of design and technology through theme learning, ensuring that links are made in a cross curricular way, giving children motivation and meaning for their learning.
Learn: D&T skills are taught progressively to ensure that all children can learn and practice in order to develop as they move through the scho ol. To design and make a product, children are encouraged and taught to combine their designing and making skills with knowledge and understanding learned in other subjects, particularly Maths, Science, Computing and Art. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.
