Design and Technology

How we intend DT is taught in our school?

Our Lady & St. Anselm’s understands that Design and Technology allows pupils to solve problems, think creatively and develop ideas within a defined purpose and tangible outcome. The school is committed to nurturing pupils’ curiosity, as well as preparing them for living in a modern world where technology is rapidly changing and advancing.

 

What we aim to achieve in DT?

We are aware that within our local area of Whitworth there is a range of engineering and joinery industries. We try where possible to make links to our topic studied in class to make learning experiences real, as well as relevant connections to science and maths. Within the area of Rossendale, it has been identified that Health and nutrition is a local focus, we therefore ensure the children study a health and nutrition DT topic each year.

Miss LeVardi is our Design and Technology subject leader. Miss LeVardi loves the practical aspect to DT and enjoys working with the children to see their excitement once they have finished their DT projects. She believes it gives a chance for all children to display their talents.
