At HHJS we believe children deserve a Design and Technology curriculum which prepares them for the ever-changing technological world they live in. Children apply practical skills with creative thinking and imagination, to solve relevant, real life problems, considering their own and other's needs. They have opportunities to explore, reflect upon and evaluate past and present design technology. They are encouraged to be inspired by engineers, designers, chefs and architects to become problem solvers in their own right, now and in their future. Wherever possible, we apply the skills and knowledge from other subjects such as mathematics, science and art.
