At St Lawrence, we inspire all children to work creatively and put their own creative stamp on the products they design. We give children opportunities to design and make a product for a particular purpose. During the making process, children learn practical skills that are developed throughout their time at St Lawrence, to help prepare them for life beyond St Lawrence. Children are encouraged to design and plan their work through drawing and discussion and also test, refine and develop their products to ensure they are working correctly for their particular audience.
When creating purposeful products, children gain an understanding of the impact that Design and Technology has in the wider community and that their knowledge and skills in other curriculum subjects including mathematics, science and computing have a powerful impact on their finished design.
