Design Technology at St James' is about applying knowledge and skills to solve a practical problem. It is a purposeful activity in response to real needs and opportunities from recognisable situations. We support our pupils in applying their knowledge and skills, to the best of their ability, to succeed in designing and making a good product using a range of materials and tools. We provide regular cooking opportunities so that children can learn about healthy life styles, seasonal ingredients and cooking skills. We cook and eat the things we grow. Children are excited by Design Technology and look forward to their next topic, becoming increasingly ambitious in their designs.
