DT (Design and technology) is an inspiring part of the curriculum that enables children to use their imagination and creativity to design, make and evaluate a range of products or systems that solve real life and relevant problems within a variety of contexts.
At St George’s, our lessons are hands on and interactive. We give children many experiences to explore, practise and consolidate a variety of practical and technical activities.
All classes from Year Nursery to Year 6 spend time each week or they have a ‘DT’ week to immerse themselves in hands on activities that promote planning, designing and making tasks involving, structures, mechanisms and textiles as well as food-based activities. The children design, make and then sell food, crafts and toys for our Christmas and Summer Fairs. Food is sold at our International Food Fair, which takes place in March each year.
