Design and Technology
At Wisbech St Mary, we intend Design and Technology to be creative and practical and provide children with the chance to problem-solve and develop their own creative ideas as individuals and as part of a team. We aim to provide our children with the opportunity to use their imagination to design and make products within a variety of contexts, to provide motivation and meaning to their learning.
Children will be taught a range of topics including; mechanisms, textiles, food technology, structures, and electrical systems (in Key Stage 2). Through hands-on, practical experiences we aim for children to leave Year 6 with some knowledge and skills of DT which will inspire children to be chefs, engineers, sculptures, carpenters, designers, architects, etc. We recognise the important role of DT in preparing our children with skills for life which will enable them to be creative individuals as they continue their education in secondary school and beyond.
