KS3 Design and Technology

KS3 Curriculum Map

KS3 pupils are taught the different material areas through a carousel system. All projects are completed in twelve week blocks.

All KS3 projects include:

  • Identifying a need and designing for a user group
  • Focused research
  • Justified specifications
  • Problem solving
  • Using a range of tools and equipment including CAD/CAM
  • Testing and evaluating the product in use

Additional Materials/Equipment required:

In Food Technology practical lessons all pupils are expected to bring in ingredients in advance in a plastic container which they can then take their finished products home in at the end of the school day.

Home Support:

Homework and research is very important as a developmental tool in Technology. Please encourage your daughter to complete her homework thoroughly and hand it in by the due date. We recommend pupils begin their homework the night it is set. Having home internet access or belonging to a local library is important as some homework tasks involve research.
