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 topics: 'Mechanical Components' 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 rabbit trap to meet our design brief of creating a humane trap. In our Textiles topic, we designed and created a coin purse as a gift to somebody special.
