Lion Learning Pathways

Design & Technology

An invaluable resource providing all your teaching and learning content requirements – split by key stage – to support Years 1 to 6.

Our approach to Design Technology is to ensure that pupils are engrossed in the full cycle of planning, design, testing and review.

Based across the fullest range of materials and using tools and structures that are commonly found in all primary settings, the Lion Pathways DT Curriculum supports fully immersive and exciting lessons for all primary phases. As children's ability to engage with an increasingly technical set of processes and tools develop, the curriculum keeps pace throughout to ensure that all attainers are supported in the practice and production of outcomes that inspire and excite their engagmeent with the tactile and material elements of Design Technology.

Curriculum maps bring the learning journey to life

What am I learning? How does it relate to what I learnt last year and to what I'm going to learn next year? Our learning pathways graphically set out the whole subject curriculum and bring the learning journey to life for every learner, in each year.


Assessment sheets for every lesson

For every lesson in every subject, the Lion Pathways Curriculum provides end-of-topic or end-of-module assessment sheets to print off and capture both pupil and teacher feedback for that piece of work. By actively tracking each learner’s views in a consistent and systematic way, it ensures their voice is heard and recorded, a core part of every element of the teaching and learning cycle.
