Design and Technology at The Avenue

Design and Technology (DT) helps to prepare children to manage our rapidly changing world. It encourages our children to become problem solvers who can work creatively and critically on their own and shared projects with real life contexts.  It is an inspiring, rigorous and practical subject which makes links to other subjects such as mathematics, science, engineering, computing and art. 

At The Avenue, the DT curriculum combines knowledge, skills, concepts and values to tackle real life problems.  We want to encourage our children to become innovators and risk-takers by providing opportunities to research, represent ideas, explore and investigate, develop ideas, make a product and evaluate their own work.  Our children will be exposed to a wide range of media including textiles, food and woodwork; through this, children will develop their skills, vocabulary and resilience.
