At St Oswald's, much of our work is done on a cross-curricular basis as well as through discrete projects at different points of the year. Design and Technology develops the knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes which will enable the children to participate in a broad range of creative activities in response to identified needs and problems.

We aim to encourage our children to be hands on and engaged with their learning. They are encourage to plan, make and evaluate each piece of work, in order to see the full process and progression from start to finish.

We use 'Projects on a Page' as a basis for our projects, alongside the National Curriculum. Some of our topics include: Mechanisms, Food, Textiles, Structures and Circuits.
