Design & Technology
Design & Technology is an inspiring, rigorous, and practical subject, which encourages pupils to think both analytically and creatively. Whilst developing their technical skills and knowledge, pupils are given the chance to respond to real-life problems with their own designs and solutions.
Topics vary from electrical systems to food, often intersecting with a range of different subjects including maths, science, computing and art. This allows children to develop in multiple areas as they improve their capacity to take-risks and innovate, preparing them for life in the modern world.
At Christ the King, we follow the National Curriculum and then enhance our curriculum using Kapow's Design and Technology scheme of work. To find out more information about Kapow click here.
This term, each year group will cover one Design and Technology unit. Click on the units below to access the Knowledge Organisers.
Design Technology in Action...
Year 1 - Inspired by the song, ‘Mouse in a windmill’, the Year 1 children designed and constructed a windmill for a client (mouse) to live in. They explored various types of windmill, how they work and their key features.
Year 5 - The children created a functional four-page pop-up storybook design, using lever, sliders, layers and spacers to create paper-based mechanisms. The children then went to visit the Year 1 children to share the stories they made.
