Through our Design and Technology Curriculum at St Joseph’s, we aim to prepare pupils to participate in tomorrow’s rapidly changing technologies.  

We provide opportunities for all children to: 

  • design and make quality products. 

  • explore food and cooking techniques along with healthy eating and environmental issues within food production. 

  • develop design and making skills, knowledge and understanding; using and selecting a range of tools, materials and components. 

  • become creative problem solvers as individuals and members of a team. 

  • be able to use computing in conjunction with the Designing and Making process. 

  •  develop an ability to criticise constructively and evaluate their own products and those of others. 

  • develop an understanding of the ways people in the past and present have used design to meet their needs. To reflect on and evaluate such techniques, its uses and effects.
