Design and Technology

Design Technology

 At Rothwell St Mary’s, Design Technology is purposefully designed to prepare children to take part in an increasingly technological world. Working on enhancing their creativity, technical expertise and logical problem-solving skills, our Design Technology curriculum aims to encourage children’s independence and curiosity.

Around school, you can see a wide range of Design Technology projects underway. From designing and making prototypes for a range of users to learning how to cook, children are taught to critique, evaluate and test their own work every step of the way. Through this meaningful Design Technology curriculum, the children of Rothwell St Mary’s are building a set of useful skills vital for future life.
