Key Stage 3:

Design & Technology

The Design and Technology curriculum is a two Year programme on a carousel. As students progress through Year 7 and 8, they are given the opportunity to focus on specific aspects of the subject such as Product Design, Food Technology, Engineering, Textiles and Graphics. However, at its core is creativity and imagination. To do this effectively, students will acquire a broad range of subject knowledge and draw on additional disciplines such as Mathematics, Science, Computing and Art. Through a variety of creative and practical activities, students will be taught the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to engage in an iterative process of designing and making in all specialisms of Design and Technology. 

There is a spiral curriculum in which students will experience each Design and Technology discipline in the Key Stage. In Year 7 students will learn the basics of health and safety in the workshop and a catering kitchen. They learn the importance of working safely and hygienically in the kitchen by practicing variety of practical skills using a range of ingredients based on the Eatwell Guide. Students will practice cooking simple dishes, enabling them to make informed decisions about food and nutrition. We explore hand stitching, using a sewing machine and applying decorative finishes on fabric to be able to offer lifelong skills to be able to sew on buttons and fastenings. 

Students are taught how to use workshop tools and machinery safely and independently. We encourage the use of CAD/CAM to make products for students to have an opportunity to understand how products are made in industry. Students will learn about input, process and outputs, by making a key ring torch using LEDs and switches to understand simple electronic component as a base for in-depth learning in Year 8. 

In Year 8 students will extend practical skills and build upon their capabilities developed in Year 7. This also includes mechanical, electrical and computer control as student build knowledge and skill using CAD/CAM and Google Sketch up. Students learn to produce working drawings to build knowledge of technical drawing in industry. Students are given the opportunity to learn soldering and gain knowledge on electronic components and the application of Integrated circuits. The main focus in Food Technology is on providing a healthy diet throughout our lifetime and in different cultures, with an introduction into Food Science. This allows students to acquire knowledge to be able to feed themselves and others affordably and nutritiously, now and later in life. 

By the end of Key Stage 3 students will be familiar with where materials and food ingredients originate from and how they are manufactured and produced. Students will be able to identify a range of issues that relate to Design and Technology and the World, include scales of production and the impact on the environment. Students will gain confidence in working independently and will be competent within the workshop and kitchen.

KS3 Assessment:
Home learning is allocated on a weekly basis by each department. It may be an isolated piece of work, a project, research or an alternative task which challenges the students to solidify their knowledge and / or extend it.

Food technology Evaluation

  • Sensory test products to identify future improvements
  • Ask the target market or other interested groups to evaluate the final idea or product

Textile Evaluation

  • Analyse the work of past or present designers
  • Evaluate designs and products to identify improvements

Product Design Evaluation

  • Test and evaluate the final idea or product and suggest improvements

In the Summer Term, each student will sit a formal, internal exam which will consist of all elements taught throughout the course.  Appropriate preparation in the form of revision should be taken seriously with sufficient planning and organisation to ensure each student fulfils their potential.

KS4 Assessment:

All students who follow this course will be given home learning weekly.  Wider reading is always useful either from the websites offered, the text book or as directed by their classroom teacher.

Students studying for a GCSE in Food Technology, Product Design, Textiles Technology or Electronic Products, must complete a single controlled assessment project which is a design, make and evaluate task from a set brief. They then complete a formal written exam at the end of year 11. Students who study Food Technology also take part in a formal practical where they prepare cook and present their final ideas in exam conditions.

GCSE assessment

Controlled Assessments Food Technology, Product Design, Textiles Technology or Electronic Products account for 60% of the marks of the course are started in the autumn term of Year 10. This is completed in December of Year 11 with interim deadlines for the final completion of sections provided by the teacher. The written exam accounts for the remaining 40% of the marks.  This is the same structure for each of these 4 courses.

The new Food Preparation and Nutrition GCSE is 50% written paper and 50% NEA. The NEAs are split into 2: Food Investigation which consists of a written report and pictorial evidence of practical work, this is worth 30% of the NEA mark: Food Preparation which consists of written and pictorial evidence of planning, making and presenting 3 dishes. NEA briefs are supplied by the exam boards in June of year 10.

In the Summer Term, each student will sit a formal, internal exam which will consist of all elements taught throughout the course.  Appropriate preparation in the form of revision should be taken seriously with sufficient planning and organisation to ensure each student fulfils their potential.
