DT Impact: What the results look like...

As pupils progress through the Design and Technology curriculum, they will build a sound foundation of understanding.  As a result, they will be able to apply the skills acquired to future projects and have an appreciation of how designs are created, realised and built upon. Our aim is for all pupils to experience successful outcomes in their units of work and feel enabled to extend their knowledge as they enter the next stage of education.

What DT looks like in KS2:

Road to RIAT returns! This fantastic annual programme gives us the opportunity to explore the exciting world of STEM. It is generously funded by the RAF Charitable Trust, in partnership with the RAF and supported by Accenture. 

Oak Class had the chance to get hands-on with STEM and unleash our creativity as we took part in an exciting activity – The Glider Challenge. Working in teams, students designed and built three gliders - each being unique in their form, shape, and materials. See how we got on below!


Year 1 & 2

Years 1 & 2 Enjoyed creating models of Lighthouses.  They were inspired by learning about the Life of Grace Darling in History.  They applied many skills to create their models and thought hard about how to join the model together. Autumn 2022


The children have access to continuous provision for designing and making.  They use the 'Creation Station' that is regularly refreshed with new materials to explore their ideas.
