Design and Technology

Design Technology Aims

 Rosary pupils will build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users that solve real and relevant problems. This will enable pupils to develop the creative, technical and practical experience needed to engage in enterprise activities.



In design and technology pupils will combine practical and technological skills with creative thinking to design and make products and systems that meet human needs. They will learn to use current technologies and consider the impact of future technological developments. They learn to think creatively and intervene to improve the quality of life, solving problems as individuals and members of a team.


Children will be working in stimulating contexts that provide a range of opportunities and draw on the local ethos, community and wider world, where pupils identify needs and opportunities. They will be encouraged to respond with ideas, products and systems, challenging expectations where appropriate. Design and Technology will combine practical and intellectual skills with an understanding of aesthetic, technical, cultural, health, social, economic, industrial and environmental issues.


This will also enable children to evaluate present and past design and technology, and its uses and effects. Through design and technology pupils develop confidence in using practical skills and become discriminating users of products. They will be always encouraged to apply their creative thinking and learn to be innovative.

Year 6: Moving vehicles:Children have had the opportunity to design a vehicle that is innovative and appeals to individuals, after having an opportunity to investigate similar products in the market. The individual prototype designs included a simple electrical circuit that produced movement of the vehicle which was modified as it was tested over rough terrains and during the development stage, to ensure that the complex structures were sturdy and fit for purpose. The constructive feedback by peers was utilised to improve product.

Year 2 children designed and made a pudding for a special event, using the following skills: peeling, chopping, mixing, tasting, following instructions and measuring. Pupils focused on the work of Jamie Oliver, a famous British chef best known for his television series and for campaigning for healthier diets in school for children.

Year 1: Children started the project by exploring the work of well-known puppet designer: Bill Baird known for his work; The Sound of Music (The lonely Goatherd). Children were provided with an opportunity to carry out an in-depth research by testing various materials and only selected the most suitable one for the activity based on their unique properties. This research enabled children to successfully design a purposeful, functional and appealing product, where opportunities where also provided for all children to use simple stitching.
