How is DT taught at Minterne?

Following a skills-based curriculum where the new knowledge and skills taught each year build upon what has been taught before, pupils at Minterne use creativity and imagination to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs.

They acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on disciplines such as maths, science, engineering and art, learning skills that will last a lifetime.

Through the process of designing, making and evaluating a product, pupils learn about structures, textiles, cooking, electrical systems and mechanical systems, whilst also learning how to take risks, becoming resourceful, innovative, enterprising and capable citizens.
