"Good buildings come from good people, and all problems are solved by good design."  Stephen Gardiner

At Holy Family, we plan and deliver inspiring and creative Design Technology lessons in accordance to the National Curriculum. These lessons give pupils the opportunity to investigate, evaluate and innovate current products. We encourage our pupils to take risks and become reflective and resourceful individuals whilst developing a critical understanding of DT's impact on daily life and the wider world.

Our Design and Technology Curriculum allows a progression in skills and knowledge. The curriculum content covers the following areas:

• Cooking and Nutrition,

 • Mechanisms,

 • Structures,

 • Textiles,

The Holy Family Bake Off

Pupils have been busy at home practising their cooking and baking skills. Many of the children have been developing important life skills, creating, understanding food and have enjoyed trying new recipes and practising well-loved ones.  The children hope to inspire other people to try out some cooking at home. Take a look at some of the delicious treats and meals the pupils at Holy Family have made! 

Here are some recipes to help you make some of the delicious goodies our children have made:
