What a St Swithin’s designers looks like.


These ideas have been developed and agreed with the children in our school. These are the behaviours and characteristics we believe a St Swithin’s designer looks like. We are designers!

Every child should: -

  • Be able to conduct research, identifying ideas, trends and possible needs.
  • Be able to produce a design that matches the brief and is purposeful or functional.
  • Be able to plan an order of work, demonstrating the ability to select appropriate materials and tools.
  • Develop their ability to use their research, design and plan to create a pleasing piece of design.
  •  Demonstrate the ability to evaluate at every stage of the design process.
  • Cooperate effectively with others.
  • Understand the origins of food and how it arrives on our plate.
Begin to use a range of techniques to prepare food, understanding the basic rules of food hygiene.
