Design and Technology – Key Stage 3 (Years 7 & 8)

Welcome to Design and Technology KS3 (Years 7 & 8)

In Years 7 and 8, the pupils study all areas of Design and Technology on a rota basis, which means that they study a different area of technology each term.  To enable the students to feel safe and comfortable during lessons, each Design and Technology subject is taught by the same staff member.  This allows the pupils to get used to only one teacher, build a trust and make steady progress as the year progresses, and don’t feel confused by changing teachers throughout the year.

We currently run a wide range of exciting and engaging subjects for the students, such as designing and creating glove puppets, creating mazes and other creative brain-teasers, as well as inventive and exciting culinary skills.  The students will learn about and create a range of food items, however the main focus is on healthy eating and an active lifestyle.

Pupils regularly bring their own ingredients from home, showing enjoyment of the subject, their engagement and eagerness to learn, as well as the fantastic ongoing support from parents, who appreciate our stance on teaching their students to eat healthily and live well.
