Design and Technology prepares pupils to participate in tomorrow's rapidly changing technological world.
Children are encouraged to look at needs, wants and opportunites, and are encouraged to think creatively to solve problems with a practical hands on approach.
Each unit of work has the same format;
Research → Plan → Design → Make → Evaluate
Our units normally are taught in block in a week. We would love parents to help us that week and I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy it. So when your children tell you that they are going to have a D & T week and you have time to spare, see your child's teacher and offer your services. It can be guaranteed, that it will be much appreciated.
Our fiends at Harton Technology College and Mortimer Community College also provide their expertise, equipment and work with our children to ensure that they have the right experiences and skills to take to the secondary school.
You can see by the smiling faces, industrious work and the fantastic innovative products, that it is a subject greatly enjoyed by pupils at Hadrian.
