Design and Technology



At Hilltop we follow the DATA (Design and Technology Association) Projects on a Page scheme which is based on the programmes of study outlined in the National Curriculum:

  • Design

  • Make

  • Evaluate

  • Technical Knowledge

  • Cooking and Nutrition

Through a variety of creative and practical activities, pupils are taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing and making. They work in a range of relevant contexts e.g. the home, school, leisure, culture, enterprise, industry and the wider environment. In providing a context, it gives a purpose for the designing and making.
