Here at St Peter's, we aim to promote critical thinking and support the progressive development of fundamental technological skills.  We strive to achieve this through inspiring all pupils in becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens with a love for design and technology.  Our intent is to encourage all pupils to:

  • develop confidence in designing, making and evaluating products in line with the six key Design and Technology principles:
    • User
    • Purpose 
    • Functionality 
    • Design Decisions
    • Innovation
    • Authenticity
  • develop the creative, technical and practical expertise needed to perform everyday tasks confidently and to participate successfully in an increasingly technological world.
  • design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values.
  • be challenged and inspired to create and experience high quality design and technology projects.
  • encourage pupils to learn how to take risks, become resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
  • build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users.
  • critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others.
  • understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

DT Club - Inventors Squad!

The taste of Greece came to Class 7!  We taste evaluated shop bought houmous, tzatziki dips and pitta bread and then we made our own versions of them following a recipe.  We learned lots of new food technology skills.  We all thought the freshly made pitta bread was a taste sensation!  Lots of us decided we also really enjoyed the flavour of the houmous.  Take a look at our cooking skills......
This afternoon class 4 have made fruit salad! The children, cut, peeled and even scraped their own fruit! There  were lots of different so as melon, strawberries, pineapple, oranges, and kiwis,apples, bananas and even a pomelo! The children then enjoyed eating the fruit salad! 
Class 10 sampled apple varieties. We used a star grid to record our decisions about crunch, appearance, sweetness, skin texture and juiciness.

Class 3 planned, made and evaluated fruit smoothies.

Class 3 - Making Billy's bucket

Wow! ... What an end to Design and Technology week! Look at all our exciting and innovative creations!

Egg box challenge!


What a start to our special focused week on technology. Visitors from Ultimaker create showed Year 6 the 3-d printer. It took around 25 minutes to print off a small robot figure. We learned how 3-d prints are revolutionising the medical world, where surgeons can study the 3-d models of knee joints, bones and even hearts before they operate on the patient. It was amazing! The skull models take about 18 hours as each 3-d object is built up of layers of PLA (polylactic acid).

Class 8 have been making cams and axles!
