At Ashton under Hill First School we follow a rolling programme of topics which are adapted to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum and inform our Design and Technology projects. 

Each of the topics allow for a range of activities addressing research skills, the design process, construction/cooking skills and evaluation. This will include safety when working with a range of small tools.
