Design & Technology
Please note that we are currently updating all of the curriculum pages on the school website and some subjects may contain more detailed information than others. If you have any questions or require any further information, please contact school and arrange to speak to our curriculum lead, Mr J Barnes-Moran.
Through high-quality design and technology teaching, our pupils will acquire a broad range of subject knowledge, which is developed each year from Reception through to Year 6. Our pupils will be inspired to use their creativity and imagination to design, make and evaluate within a variety of contexts. Through disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art, our pupils will solve real and relevant problems whilst taking risks and being resourceful. Our innovative projects will ensure that our pupils become citizens capable of contributing to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation, whilst displaying a critical understanding of design and technology through history to the present day.
The St.Luke’s Design and Technology curriculum is based on the planning provided by Plan Bee. We have taken the planning to form the basis of a curriculum which has been uniquely developed for us. Each year our pupils will refine the necessary skills to become capable citizens in design and technology, carefully developing these skills each year as they progress through school. In order to develop a critical understanding of the history of the subject, our curriculum has incorporated the teaching of some of the world’s most influential people, as well as including some individuals from closer to home.
