9-1 Tracker Spreadsheet to show pupil progress and grade of AQA GCSE Technology

9-1 Tracker Spreadsheet to show pupil progress and grade of AQA GCSE Technology

A spreadsheet to help staff and pupils to keep a track on pupil progress in the NEW Technology GCSE from AQA. Coursework, Exam results and exam questions will all accumulate to give a predicted grade for the pupil. The grade boundaries are based on previous ones released by AQA I have spoken to them and unsurprisingly they do not as yet have any idea what these will be, but suggested that the one I have used will ‘do for now’. If you go to the LOOKUPS page you can edit these yourself if you feel they are too high or too low. I have found that pupils appreciate being able to graphically see the progress they are making, and this enables them to take more ownership of the project and become more independent.

Textiles - World Cup Kit Design - One off/ Cover lesson

Textiles - World Cup Kit Design - One off/ Cover lesson

Textiles - KS3 or 4. I’ve put together a quick cover lesson based on re-designing the World Cup 2018 Kit for a country of choice. The first part of the PPT is based on GQ’s article ranking the kits from worst to best. There’s some cutting comments so you may want to proof read and cut some if you’re not happy with them. As cover I would suggest printing the last 2 slides to use as templates then they can make the choice if they draw on there or trace the kits so they can make adjustments to the shape. I may also print the flag slides as reference/starting points for their ideas. Hope it’s useful for someone.

Rotations Organiser, How To organise and show progress over time in a folder.

Rotations Organiser, How To organise and show progress over time in a folder.

The main issues we had as a technology department is to show the students progress from one rotation to another. I have developed a ring bind folder organiser to help the teachers collate the information. The class Teacher can then hand the folder to the next teacher and it shows progress over time. Included in the document is a few templates. How to do rotations etc. You will store in the folder the following information Annual Rotation Class List (any new student this information requires updating by class teacher) Class Photos Seating Plan SOW (Class Teacher to assign their name next to the term) Class Analysis (Sisra) (Class Teacher to assign their name next to the term) Class Work Booklet (Class Teacher to assign their name next to the term) Homework Booklet (Class Teacher to assign their name next to the term)

Register Recaps - Lesson Starter Activities

5 Great lesson starter activities that can be adapted for ANY subject or curriculum. Activities are fun and focus on pupil choice for theory and literacy recap! Download the PowerPoint to use or adapt to suit your subject area. Brightly coloured with a simple layout: Knowledge Wheel: Students have to get from A-B by answering the questions correctly. However, if they want to get the most points, the must take the long route around, answering the more difficult coloured questions. This method gives students a choice and is differentiated for different levels of ability. Target Practice: Using 3 darts, students must select 3 questions to answer to try to get the most points. Question difficulty varies based on the number of points each colour is worth. Again, this method gives students a choice and is differentiated for different levels of ability. Keyword Scrabble: Students must figure out each of the keywords by answering the clues and matching the letters to the total number of points. This activity is a great way to check student understanding and correct spellings. Connect 4 Analysis: Students must connect 4 in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. At the top of each column there is a product analysis heading. Student can only connect 4 if they correctly analyse the product based on the heading. For example: Analysis the function of the torch, iPhone, fidget spinner and washing machine. Analysing the aesthetics of the watch, consumer of the baby toy, function of the fidget spinner and material of the Xbox pad. The gives students a choice from a range of analysis categories. Vocab Snap: Students have 2 minutes to match the vocabulary word to its definition. Using a mini whiteboard they can write, 5E…1C etc. This is a great way of embedding keywords and literacy easily.

Creative drawing task and Inspirations

This is an activity i do with my students to get them thinking about wild ideas and not have to be perfect all the time. Each student will get 3 stacks of paper. Each stack has a noun, adjective and verb. (a list is provided in the power point, you can print and cut them out). They will read the descriptions and draw the first thing that come to their mind. A lot of fun and can get loud! The presentation continues to talk about inspirations and what the inspiration was for famous designs (another game). Another drawing task which gets the students to morph two random items together.
