At St Marys we want to teach children to take risks, become resourceful and innovative. Through Design and Technology, we will equip them with the knowledge and skills to think creatively and problem solve.
We emphasise subject specific vocabulary because at St Mary’s we have many children with English as their second language.
At St Mary’s Design and Technology is taught as part of a thematic approach, with links being made to other areas of the curriculum where possible. St Mary’s follows the National Curriculum for D&T in all year groups to enable children to make good progress from EYFS to Year 6. The school uses the Lancashire planning as a basis for what we teach. Lessons are taught through topics with half a term spent on each topic. Assessment is tracked on the school assessment system of Target Tracker each term.
