Design Technology

Subject intent: 

Design and technology is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject. At William Cassidi, we allow our children to use their creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, often linked to our curriculum subjects. We encourage our children to consider their own and other’s needs, wants and values. Our pupils acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. Our design technology curriculum allows pupils to learn how to take risks, become resourceful and supports them in their journey to becoming innovative, enterprising and capable citizens. The pupils at William Cassidi should be provided with a high quality design technology education which makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.


Early Years

 In Nursery and Reception, our curriculum is based on the EYFS framework document and 'Development Matters’. It is taught through topics, which are adapted and developed to suit children’s interests. For Nursery children, we have identified key skills in each area for us to focus on, whilst in Reception we have identified skills to teach and develop during each half-term to progress towards meeting the Early Learning Goals.

DT aligns most closely with the EYFS area of:
