Design and Technology

Design and technology prepares children to take part in the development of tomorrow’s rapidly changing world.  Creative thinking encourages children to make positive changes to their quality of life.

At St Stephen's, the aim of our D&T curriculum is to encourage children to become autonomous and creative problem solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Also, it aims to allow them to identify needs and opportunities and to respond by developing ideas and eventually making products and systems. 

Through the study of design and technology they combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industrial practices. This allows them to reflect on and evaluate present and past design and technology, its uses and its impacts.  Design and technology helps all children to become discriminating and informed consumers and potential innovators. Below is a copy of our D&T curriculum overview, which sets out the core aspects of our approach and outlines the key learning undertaken in each project across each year group.
