Design Technology


At Seaburn Dene, we believe our design and technology curriculum prepares our children to deal with tomorrow's rapidly changing world. Inspired by our school's drivers, we encourage children to become aspirational, independent, creative problem solvers and thinkers, both as individuals and part of a team, supporting. Through the study of high-quality design and technology, our children combine practical skills with an understanding of aesthetic, social and environmental issues, as well as functions and industry. This allows them to reflect on, and evaluate, past and present technology, its uses and impacts.



Design and Technology Curriculum Map: Year 1-6

A minimum of three times over the course of each academic year, every class will spend a proportion of their DT lessons on a focused project spanning roughly three days. During this time, they will come off timetable and use their maths, English, science and computing skills to enhance their DT work. Details of these projects can be found below:
