New (UPDATE 1) AQA D&T 1-9 WORKBOOK and ASSESSMENT GUIDE for 2017 onward (ALL SECTIONS- 21 pages)

NOW UPDATED Please re download to update your copy. New page added at end for final prototype. Thanks to everyone who has purchased and downloaded, I hope it is working for you as well as it is for me. I shall add to the files if anything comes to mind as I continue to use it. For the new 1-9 GCSE. As this is the first year there is going to be confusion amongst both teachers and pupils. AQA have not provided any great depth of information for anyone, and so I think this will be the best way to go forward. Yes it is a workbook and AQA have said that we should not use them, but AQA have not given us very much at all so far. This just gives the pupils and us a foundation structure. I intend to use it with Yr10 to make them aware of the new assessment criteria. This is a 21 page document for the whole project. All section AO1 to AO4 are covered and worksheets guide pupils to achieve the AQA assessment criteria. It may be that lower ability candidates may use this in Yr11 as a framework to guide them and help them to collect the right information, and that it can then be used a little like a scrapbook to 'cut and paste' their work into another folder. This is now a 22 page document for the whole project. All section AO1 to AO4 are covered and worksheets guide pupils to achieve the AQA assessment criteria.

How to tell the time using an analogue clock ... plus free interactive display.

How to tell the time using an analogue clock ... plus free interactive display.

A cut out clock face with hands. You will need thin card, glue sticks, and paper fasteners. These can be used as individual clocks for pupils to learn to tell the time. Then when the lesson is done, pupils can set the time and write it in the box provided. Then the whole class can display their work and you will have a useful display/resource available to you from then on. So fun lesson or two ... and an interactive display to freshen your walls, before the headteacher starts mooching around and tutting, all in one go ... bargain.

AQA D&T AO1-AO5 Assessment sheet (for old Spec until 2017)

AQA D&T AO1-AO5 Assessment sheet (for old Spec until 2017)

Sheets with assessment criteria that can be given to pupils as you start each section with them. Using highlighter pens they/you can assess their progress and they can visually see their current mark. Each sheet has the AQA grading criteria, also a check list for relevant contents, and space for planning. I find that giving the pupils one sheet at a time helps them to focus on the specific area they are working on and doesn't overload them with too much at one time.

3 Sheets for collecting project research

This is aimed at pupils who struggle to collect research normally. This gives them focused activities and breaks up the task into more manageable ones. These pages are sold separately but buying all three at once is nearly 50% cheaper.
