DT skills coverage
Here at Stone St Mary’s we have a child centred DT curriculum, where children are encouraged to explore, innovate, design and build through a variety of resources.
We have a teaching methodology that recognises the child’s point of view and the realisation that the product is the key feature of the activity, while from the teacher’s point of view, it is the process that leads to the product that is crucial.
Our DT curriculum inspires our Community value, in that children are collaborating together and communicating their ideas.
The key skills that this brings is a respect for the values of craftsmanship, a responsibility for the consequences of decisions and lots of personal qualities e.g. persistence, determination, respect of others and their views.
