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: 'Mechanisms and Construction' 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.
