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. 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.
Mrs Rainey is our Design and Technology subject leader. Mrs Rainey loves the practical aspect to DT. She believes it gives a chance for all children to display their talents.

This term the Key Stage One and Two pupils have had the chance to take part in a DT after school club with Miss Rawlinson and Mrs King.
In Key Stage One the children enjoyed designing and making flying saucers. They worked collaboratively to design and make a vehicle and got very messy.
