Design and Technology


At Our Lady of Lourdes, it is our intention, in Design and Technology that the children will have a diet of hands on, practical experience of designing, making and evaluating products. Children will have the opportunity to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems, from a range of contexts. Children will learn how to take risks, becoming resourceful and innovative. Through the evaluation of past and present design and technology, they develop a critical understanding of its impact on daily life and the wider world.



Children will be given opportunities to design and make products based on a certain design criteria through design and technology projects. They will be given opportunities to explore and evaluate a range of existing products and use what they learn from these when designing. They will have opportunities to explore materials and tools, and be taught certain skills which they can use when making their product.
