St Joseph’s uses the Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust Design & Technology Transition Unit from EYFS to Year 6. These carefully planned units ensure that our pupils are ready to access the KS3 Design & Technology curriculum once they enter secondary school. Our Design Technology curriculum aims to excite and ignite our pupils’ interest in design and technology and prepare them to participate in the development of a rapidly changing world. In each unit of work, they design and make products for a specific need or purpose – solving real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. Through carefully constructed sequences of learning, they are taught about the world we live in and develop a wide range of skills embedded through the threshold concepts of designing, making, evaluating and problem solving – they are exposed to an abundance of technical knowledge in each and every lesson.
