Celebrating Success in D&T at Walton

Dear Parents, Carers and Students

During the last few weeks the Design and Technology department have been seeing some outstanding design drawings and practical work from our students.  The students have been creative and innovative using a variety of materials they have available at home.  We wanted to celebrate their achievements as widely as we could and so have chosen to launch our DT department blog.  This has been created and developed by Mrs White and I am personally very grateful for all her hard work.

This is the work displayed from May we are going to release new work monthly and share it with you – it’s fantastic to see how talented our youngsters are.

Yours Ms Emma Hillier

Head of Design and Technology
