Design and Technology encompasses a wide range of skills and techniques that allow pupils to explore and develop their ideas at all levels. Hatton Park promotes all aspects of Design and Technology, including food tech, textiles, wood work and construction in a safe and controlled way. Children have access to a variety of construction materials, wood, tools and artist’s media to assist them in their learning.
Design and Technology has close links to Science. Pupils are able to build on subject knowledge, as well as practicing the problem- solving processes needed to invent, design, build, test and evaluate their given projects. Essential skills such as team work, presentation and reflection are also promoted through the teaching of Design and Technology.
