Design & Technology

Design Technology at Dalestorth


We follow a 2 year rolling curriculum plan across school based on the 'Inspire' Curriculum. Throughout this cycle, the children have many opportunities to experience a range of Design and Technology (DT) opportunities. All children will have termly projects in DT.


Each class completes at least 1 DT project per term. Within each 2-year planning cycle, all areas of the curriculum are covered, with a clear progression of skills being developed.


DT project booklets are used, ensuring all work is compiled in an organised manner.


DT projects in KS1 and KS2 include the following elements:


  1. Investigative and Evaluative Activities
  2. Focused tasks
  3. A Design, Make and Evaluate Assignment


What's new 2018-19?

This year we will be introducing whole-school home D&T projects! Keep your eyes peeled for further information in the Autumn Term. 


We will also be enjoying a whole school festive D&T month in the run-up to Christmas. Photos will be added later in the term. 




In October we enjoyed a whole school Technology Week. From making spiders in Foundation Stage through to making gadget covers in Years 5 and 6, the children across school all took part in designing, making and evaluating a product. Here are a few photos to show you what we did.
