Design & Technology

Welcome to Design and Technology

At Christ the King, Design Technology is linked and incorporated into our half termly core texts which make our designs and products relevant and purposeful. Our aim is to produce products that are relevant to real life by drawing upon inspiration from research of historical designs and making modern day comparisons. We take a four strand approach towards the subject by designing, making and evaluating products which are all underpinned by technical knowledge. In order to engage and excite children, they are given choices when designing to engage with the iterative process. The ongoing evaluation process allows the children to take a critical and analytical approach to maximise their creativity. Here at our school children adopt a multi-faceted approach and make links from their subject knowledge such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art when immersing themselves in Design technology.
