Design and Technology

DT Curriculum Progression of Skills

At Holy Trinity School, we acknowledge the impact that an interesting and engaging Design and Technology curriculum can have on a child’s development and their understanding of products in the world around them.

Design and Technology, as a practical subject, cultivates the values of love, aspiration, and community among children. It encourages students to express their creativity and imagination, fostering a deep love for the process of bringing a concept to life. As children embark on their design journey, they aspire to create meaningful and innovative products, while learning new skills. Through collaborative projects, a sense of community is grown, where students work together, share ideas, and support one another. In this way, Design and Technology not only builds practical skills but also instils the values of love for crafting, aspirations for excellence, and a strong sense of community among all our learners. Here they will utilise and develop the key skills associated with Design and Technology found within the broad categories of:

  • Textiles
  • Mechanisms
  • Construction
  • Nutrition
