Our Y9s have not opted for D&T in the numbers we've had in the past. This is due to many reasons, one being that there are only two option blocks this year. We are thinking of doing a very short making activity, for approx 6 sessions, in each technolgy area, close to the time of option choosing. Food and Textiles don't seem too bad, but it is all getting a bit worrying! Has anyone got any other ideas as to how we can encourage them to opt?
