St Andrew's CE First School

Design & Technology

Being a Designer at St Andrew’s CofE First School means we encourage children to use their REACH values, creativity and imagination to learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.

We explore DT through researching, designing and making products to solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. We aim to, wherever possible, link work to other disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art.

Giving the children opportunities to reflect upon and evaluate both past and present design technology, its uses and its effectiveness through the encouragement to become risk-takers and innovators.

At St Andrew's there is a 2 year rolling programme that takes account of the children being taught in mixed age classes in Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2) and Key Stage 2 (Years 3 & 4). 

Sept 2023 to July 2024 is Year B; Sept 2024 to July 2025 will be Year A
