Design and Technology

Hello! I’m Miss Hass, and I am  Design and Technology Lead for Gorringe Park Primary School.


I have enjoyed Design and Technology all through my school career as student (and now as a teacher),  I took GCSE Design and Technology. One of the projects I completed for my GCSE was a puzzle especially designed for Nursery children. I researched it by creating a questionnaire that I sent to local nurseries to ask them what areas of learning they found their children could have a toy to help with. After receiving the answers, I designed prototypes, tested them out, then I created a final product, a painted wooden puzzle that matched shapes and colours and tested it out on Nursery. I made a shape and colour puzzle out of wood where children could match the shapes and colours, I still have the puzzle and I will see what our Nursery children think of it.


My favourite Design and Technology memory was when I designed and made my own spatula made out of hard wood (over 35 years ago) I still have the spatula and use it to cook my food, it’s especially good for making scrambled eggs.


I am looking forward to sharing my enthusiasm and expertise in this subject with the pupils of Gorringe Park.
