Design & Technology

Design and Technology is about our children developing design and making skills that they can combine with specific knowledge and understanding in order to create and make quality products. This process should assist children in developing a greater awareness and understanding of how products are designed and made. Children should also become increasingly aware of the technological contribution made to both our culture and quality of life.

At Christopher Hatton we are teaching DT according to the New Curriculum. We seek to provide our children with exciting cross-curricular opportunities that involve designing, investigating, making and evaluating products as well as focusing more on technical knowledge and cooking and nutrition. Projects are organised in blocks so the children can see the process then results of their learning as it happens, involving on the spot decisions but also time to consider and explore alternative ways of making something.

Tudor Houses Year 2 April 2016 (15 images)

As part of our Great Fire of London topic we made Tudor houses. We worked together and even though they are made of cardboard, we think they look quite accurate!
