Design & Technology at Dalestorth


We have recently updated our whole school curriculum planning. Though we still follow a 2 year rolling curriculum plan, we have altered it so that each year we cover three topics, rather than one per half term. This is enabling us to explore topics thoroughly, and spend time embedding our learning.


To see the full curriculum topic overviews, follow the link:


Within each 2-year cycle, all areas of the D&T curriculum are covered, with a clear progression of skills being developed.


Children complete their work in a project booklet, and each project will include the following elements:


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


Home-school projects

Each term, we send home a seasonal technology based home-school project. Lots of you have joined in with them so far, and we look forward to seeing your projects each term!
