Design and Technology
Design and Technology is split into three key areas at St. John’s:
Our key aims are to develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world. We aim to help every child to build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users.
We support them in developing the skills of being able to critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others. Through our cookery we help them to understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook. We are also fortunate to be able to use the cookery facilities in another local school so that all pupils can develop their skills and knowledge of cookery across many areas and hopefully continue to develop this at home.
