Data Helpsheets;Primary;Science amp; Technology

31st December 1999 at 00:00
The new Helpsheets are now available from the Design and Technology Association and take into account the new Orders for design and technology. They should be used in conjunction with the Department for Education and EmploymentStandards and Effectiveness UnitQualifications and Curriculum Authority exemplar scheme of work and the National Curriculum Order for Design and Technology.

Each unit is full of sketches showing processes and techniques, notes from teacher to teacher, homework activities and a glossary.

There are also pro formas to review each unit, which teachers may find helpful to use with children. The Helpsheets relate to each of the 24 units of work and many of these units are based on the DATA Guidance Materials for key stages 1 and 2 published in 1995.

If you intend to use the DATA Helpsheets to plan activities for Design and Technology Week, to be held on July 3-7, 2000, then you may obtain them at the special purchase price of pound;5 (plus pamp;p), instead of the usual price of pound;15 (pound;10 for members). Further information can be obtained from DATA on 01789 470007.
