As an important part of the St Joseph’s curriculum, children use creativity and imagination in Design and Technology to design and make products that are relevant to real life situations. They develop a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on past experiences such as Mathematics, Science, Computing and Art. Children develop important life skills as they gain a better understanding of products and their impact on daily life and the wider world. The skills developed within Design and Technology units in school are then transferable to many hands on jobs that children may aspire to do when they become adults in the working world.
Along with the rest of our school curriculum, as children undertake Design and Technology they develop attitudes and attributes which we believe will be important in enabling our children to thrive in the future of God's world.
