DT at New City is intertwined throughout all curriculum areas as well as being taught as a standalone subject that is delivered throughout the year. From the EYFS all the way through to Year 6, pupils have opportunities to explore design and technology in the world around them. From designing and creating their own transport images in Nursery to building their own moving vehicles in Year 6, all pupils have access to a curriculum that looks at structure, textiles, cooking and nutrition and electrical systems.  

Our exceptional DT provision at New City extends beyond the regular school day. With DT and engineering clubs, pupils have the opportunity to feed their enthusiasm for DT even further. This is further supported by in school workshops with projects such as Gamelan in Year 3, where pupils create their own Indonesian puppets to put on a traditional production.
