Design Technology Curriculum

At St Christopher’s, our design and technology curriculum prepares children for the developing world and encourages them to become curious and creative problem-solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. Throughout each half term, children work through a series of lessons in the order of research, design, make, test and evaluate. Throughout this process, children use a broad range of tools and techniques to develop skills which are built on over their years throughout school. When children leave us they are equipped with skills to take forward into the ever-changing world.
