identify the risks and the correct use of PPE.

 

2

How to research useful information in a digital age.

Analyse the  information

  • Popplet
  • Realsmart rmap
  • Ipads

Click below

Pupils will gather information independently.

Pupils will collaborate and consider to views of others.

L3 Gather information independently + views of users.

Pupils start a learning blog on tumblr.

3

Write a design brief

 Analyse and synthesise the
information into a working specification

Pupils use twitter to
tweet their specification points to a twitter account.

Pupils to follow and tweet and share.

@dtstjulians

Twitter help

Independently use a range of sources of information to develop a specification.

L5 Outline specification and various sources of research. 

L6 Independently use a range of sources to develop a specification

MAT relevant research, generate a detailed specification.

Pupils to understand
Electronics

Voltage, Current and power

Principals of movement in
a motor.

Opposing EMF

Basic principles

Reverse engineer an
electric motor.

Make an electric motor
with a cork, copper wire, magnets and pins

Pupils understand Voltage,
Current and power.

Learners can employ below
the line analysis.

5

Gears

  • Velocity ratios
  • Mechanical advantage.

 

  • Make a gear box using nylon gears and panel
    pins.
  • Power it up with a cordless drill.

Pupil is able to use the
language of mechanics to design and discuss the best gearbox for their buggy.

Calculate velocity ratios
in a practical way.

6

Structures

Teacher explanation of the
triangulation and the classification of forces.

Pupils make a scale model
of the buggy chassis using barbeque sticks and blue tack.

Pupils learn to generate
quick ideas/ prototypes for their buggy.

Pupils learn to express
Ideas in a practical way.

7

Graphics as a method of
bringing ideas together.

Presentation methods
including orthographic drawing

  • Sketch bookwork
  • Creative thinking morphological analysis
  • 4x4x4 design
  • Pupils take photos of models and add to blog.
  • Pupils take photos of design work and add to blog.

 Pupils develop their learning blog on tumblr.

Pupils learn to innovate
and to express/communicate ideas in a creative way.

Pupils produce formal
orthographic views (Side view and plan view)

L4 Alternative ideas using sketches, models and/or ICT, and make
choices could be developed in their head!

L5/6 Refine or change ideas in the light of their research –
this could include testing, modeling as the idea develops.

MAT Creativity, innovation & originality shown, Annotate design
ideas/model them in order to aid development. Communicate using a range of
skills

8

Development to final outcome

  • List of jobs
  • List of resources
  • Planning it – Gantt chart
  • Template for making
  • Making Diary

Pupils develop their learning blog on tumblr.

L4 Outline what and how they
are going to make it.

L5 Produce dimensioned
drawings / templates / sequence making stages

L6 Produce formal drawings/

with details of manufacture

MAT order and
correctly sequence the manufacture

9

Making

To be safe in the workshop
resistant materials

To learn and practical
skills

  • Marking out and cutting pine
  • Using a file
  • Using a hegner saw

Make the left and right sides

Teacher demonstrates

  • Marking out and cutting pine
  • Using a file
  • Using a hegner saw

Differentiation in making diary

  • Pupils
    evaluate their work as it
    is realized making changes when necessary in diary (Could be verbal
    video blog)

 

All pupils should produce the sides for their buggy from the template.

L4 use suitable equipment and produce functional buggy.

L5 Measure, mark
out /cut / join materials.
Produce a product of acceptable quality and function.

 

L6 Adapting to unforeseen problems choosing from a range of materials
appropriate standard of construction and finish.

Teacher demonstrates

  • Using
    a jig to support buggy construction.

Teacher reinforces health and safty
in the workshop.

  • Marking out and cutting pine
  • Using a file
  • Using a hegner saw

Differentiation in making diary
