Our Design and Technology curriculum provides children with a real-life context for designing and making products with a purpose. Through our innovative curriculum, we encourage the children to aim high and engage with the wider world. Children at St. Mary's will develop skills, knowledge and understanding of designing and making functional products. They will learn to use a range of tools with confidence and will view evaluation as a way to improve their initial pro-types. Design and Technology and St. Mary's encourages children's creativity and innovation through engaging with important, current issues by exploring the designed and made world in which we live.
In Year 2, we have designed and created our own animal habitats from around the world, next we will evaluate them!
This week in Year 4, we have been food tasting in preparation for designing and making our own Autumn Harvest Stew. The children tried harvest vegetables in preparation for their design. By making our stew, we are linking our Science (the digestive system) and History (Life after the 1600s - The Great Plague), learning together to complete this DT project. More photos to follow next week when their designs become reality...watch out for them.
Our STEM Morning
We had a special delivery in Griffin Class today... a golden egg! We were set the task from Jack to design and make something that could carry the special egg. It had to be strong and it had to keep the egg safe from cracking! Take a look at our creations...
