Design Technology

Walking into a DT lesson at St John’s is to observe a world in which even the youngest children are engaging in independent problem solving, collaborative exploration of design and construction, imaginative expression of individual design concepts and above all the buzz of excited learning. Skills and knowledge are taught in a way that enables children not simply to reproduce models but to explore ideas and build on their experience and understanding in individual and varied ways, persevering to overcome problems and find solutions. All the design briefs are based in real purposes for learning that are motivating and engaging.
