AQA 2018 -Section A- Preparation - Evaluation of 10 example Remote control storage, and Design sheet

AQA 2018 -Section A- Preparation - Evaluation of 10 example Remote control storage, and Design sheet

Presentation of 10 different CAD designs with evaluation in the notes. Also a Design sheet for pupils to produce their own specification points and then produce a design to answer that specification. Pupils have completed two sheets for me and are now making a model of the best design. Going down a storm with my Yr11 who are a little bored by paper revision and GCSE Pod videos.

AQA Remote control storage BUNDLE

AQA Remote control storage BUNDLE

All the files I have produced for a number of lessons. Have a break from the book and GCSE Pod revision and let pupils design and make for some Kinaesthetic learning. Pupils evaluate existing CAD designs, develop designs for their own products and then can model one or more. Works well for all ability levels.

AQA Section A 2018 - Remote control Storage Analysing - NOW 10 CAD examples (updated)

For Yr11 AQA examination 2018. The theme is remote control storage and I have produced this to show pupils a range of possible design ideas that they can use in the examination. Also information to help them to understand how each design would be made, and a simple evaluation of each design. These comments are added as note within the powerpoint and teachers can choose how to use them, depending on the groups they teach.

AQA Examination 2018 Remote control storage. Mini Practical project and 2 H/W worksheets

AQA Examination 2018 Remote control storage. Mini Practical project and 2 H/W worksheets

This years AQA examination theme is remote control storage, here are a few simple resources to get groups thinking about the task. This is a mini practical project that pupils can complete in one or two lessons and there are also two other homework type sheets as well. Pupils will have to produce 5 different designs, so by giving them mini practicals they will have physically made a number of possible designs before the exam. There is a question worksheet in the style of the usual AQA batch production question. There is a worksheet to show the different shapes and sizes of existing remote controls. Pupils can approximate the sizes and enter them onto the sheet There is also an example of a product that is quick and simple to make, using cheap easily accessible materials and made with a coping saw and either a glue gun or nails. Pupils could extend the task by developing a jig to hold the pieces so they could be assembled accurately. A printable sheet of templates is also included. I am then going to have pupils make a simple storage device based on their own remote controls but this is a quick way to show them how easy it is to collect the sizes and then to produce a quick product.

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

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.

Reuse waste products to make a Heliostat. Cross curricular links to Science, Mathematics, Geog & Eng

Reuse waste products to make a Heliostat. Cross curricular links to Science, Mathematics, Geog & Eng

A project suitable for KS3 and KS4 groups. Best run as a group activity. Build a solar powered water heating device and use scientific methods to collect data, use Mathematics and ICT to interpret the data, and Physical and Human Geography to correctly align the device and local HWRC's to educate children, and hopefully of course their parents in the types of materials that can and cannot be recycled. This can be set up in a few lessons and the data collection and project folder work generated can go on for as long as you wish to.

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.
