Design Technology

Design and Technology helps to prepare children for the developing world. The subject encourages children to become creative problem solvers, both as individuals and as part of a team. At Hopwood, we follow guidance from the DT Association to develop awareness and understanding of how everyday objects  are designed and made. It enables children to become innovators, by combining their design and making skills with knowledge and understanding.


Each year group covers a range of projects over the year, including food, mechanisms, textiles, structures and electrical systems each covering a range of different skills.
