Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils should be taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing and making. They should work in a range of relevant contexts (e.g. the home and school, gardens and playgrounds, the local community, industry and the wider environment).
The St Patrick's Vehicle project follows a structure that spans across the duration of the Vehicle - usually a term.
1. Research products (trying different products).
2. Compare products (their likes and dislikes)
3. Generating ideas for the design.
4. Designing the product.
5. Planning the making of the product.
6. Making the product.
7. Evaluating the product.
Forced school Closure -
Design Technology for distanced learning
Seeings as we are all staying at home during the lock down period, why not start learning a new hobby? Or perfecting your design technology skills. These could include food technology such as baking, making pizzas, designing cookies and biscuits - this is all Design Technology!
You could begin to learn how to sew or do cross stitch? Or design and make your own musical instruments? Now is the time to try something new and learn new skills that can support you once we come back to school.
