Design and Technology
At Saint Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, we use the PlanBee Scheme to support our teaching of Design and Technology. So far this year, we have studied the following the topics: 'Resistant and flexible materials' and 'Textiles'.
In each topic, we are assigned a challenging task. We then consider what we need to create before looking at example products already available and conducting market research. Following this, we use our gathered research to design, edit and evaluate a finished piece.
So far this year, we have made a suspension bridge to meet our brief of easing traffic issues in the local area. In our Textiles topic, we designed and created a phone case as a gift to somebody special.
