Design & Technology Curriculum

Design & Technology Coordinator

Mr Porter

As well as coordinating Music, I am also the Design and Technology coordinator. From a very young age I've always been interested in taking things apart, working out how it works and then trying to put it back together.

I've always been interested in D&T after I recieved my very first Lego set. I've constantly been build and repairing things and now I get the chance to pass on my knowledge and skills to the children at St.Michae's.

Whole School

Children will be inspired through a broad range of practical experiences to create innovative designs which solve real and relevant problems within a variety of different contexts.

Children will be able to identify real and relevant problems, critically evaluate existing products and then take risks and innovate when designing and creating solutions to the problems.

Opportunities will be provided for children to evaluate key events and individuals who have helped shape the world, showing the real impact of design and technology on the wider environment and helping to inspire children to become the next generation of innovators.


Children will be taught D&T throughout the year. This may be weekly sessions or D&T days in each term to allow time to develop knowledge and skills in a deeper and a more secure way.

The teaching of D&T will follow a cyclical 3-step process: Exploring/Evaluating – Designing – Making – (Evaluating).
