Design and Technology

Design and Technology at Thornhill will allow children to develop their practical skills through encouraging creativity and imagination in each research, design, make and evaluate process.  Pupils will design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts, considering their own and others’ needs, wants and values. They will acquire and use a broad range of skills and knowledge whilst drawing on other disciplines.
