 Draw on their own experience to help generate ideas

 Suggest ideas and explain what they are going to do

 Identify a target group for what they intend to design and make

 Model their ideas in card and paper

 Develop their design ideas applying findings from their earlier research

 

 

 Generate ideas by drawing on their own and other people's experiences

 Develop their design ideas through discussion, observation , drawing and modelling

 Identify a purpose for what they intend to design and make

 Identify simple design criteria

 Make simple drawings and label parts

 

 

 Generate ideas for an item, considering its purpose and the user/s

 Identify a purpose and establish criteria for a successful product.

 Plan the order of their work before starting

 Explore, develop and communicate design proposals by modelling ideas

 Make drawings with labels when designing

 

 

 Generate ideas, considering the purposes for which they are designing

 Make labelled drawings from different views showing specific features

 Develop a clear idea of what has to be done, planning how to use materials, equipment and processes, and suggesting alternative methods of making, if the first attempts fail

 Evaluate products and identify criteria that can be used for their own designs

 

 

 Generate ideas through brainstorming and identify a purpose for their product

 Draw up a specification for their design

 Develop a clear idea of what has to be done, planning how to use materials, equipment and processes, and suggesting alternative methods of making if the first attempts fail

 Use results of investigations, information sources, including ICT when developing design ideas

 

 

 Communicate their ideas through detailed labelled drawings

 Develop a design specification

 Explore, develop and communicate aspects of their design proposals by modelling their ideas in a variety of ways

 Plan the order of their work, choosing appropriate materials, tools and techniques

 

Working with tools, equipment, materials and components to make quality products (inc-food)

Select tools and equipment independently

Make their design using appropriate techniques

 

 Make their design using appropriate techniques

 With help measure, mark out, cut and shape a range of materials

 Use tools eg scissors and a hole punch safely

 Assemble, join and combine materials and components together using a variety of temporary methods e.g. glues or masking tape

 Select and use appropriate fruit and vegetables, processes and tools

 Use basic food handling, hygienic practices and personal hygiene

 Use simple finishing techniques to improve the appearance of their product

 

 

 Begin to select tools and materials; use vocab' to name and describe them

 Measure, cut and score with some accuracy

 Use hand tools safely and appropriately

 Assemble, join and combine materials in order to make a product

 Cut, shape and join fabric to make a simple garment. Use basic sewing techniques

 Follow safe procedures for food safety and hygiene

 Choose and use appropriate finishing techniques

 

 

 Select tools and techniques for making their product

 Measure, mark out, cut, score and assemble components with more accuracy

 Work safely and accurately with a range of simple tools

 Think about their ideas as they make progress and be willing change things if this helps them improve their work

 Measure, tape or pin, cut and join fabric with some accuracy

 Demonstrate hygienic food preparation and storage

 Use finishing techniques strengthen and improve the appearance of their product using a range of equipment including ICT

 

 

 Select appropriate tools and techniques for making their product

 Measure, mark out, cut and shape a range of materials, using appropriate tools, equipment and techniques

 Join and combine materials and components accurately in temporary and permanent ways

 Sew using a range of different stitches, weave and knit

 

 Measure, tape or pin, cut and join fabric with some accuracy

 Use simple graphical communication techniques

 

 

 Select appropriate materials, tools and techniques

 Measure and mark out accurately

 Use skills in using different tools and equipment safely and accurately

 

 Weigh and measure accurately (time, dry ingredients, liquids)

 Apply the rules for basic food hygiene and other safe practices e.g. hazards relating to the use of ovens

 Cut and join with accuracy to ensure a good-quality finish to the product

 

 

 Select appropriate tools, materials, components and techniques

 Assemble components make working models

 Use tools safely and accurately

 Construct products using permanent joining techniques

 Make modifications as they go along

 Pin, sew and stitch materials together create a product

 Achieve a quality product

 

Evaluating processes and products

 

Evaluate their product by discussing how well it works in relation to the purpose

Talk about how they could improve it.

 

 Evaluate their product by discussing how well it works in relation to the purpose

 Evaluate their products as they are developed, identifying strengths and possible changes they might make

 Evaluate their product by asking questions about what they have made and how they have gone about it

 

 

 Evaluate against their design criteria

 Evaluate their products as they are developed, identifying strengths and possible changes they might make

 Talk about their ideas, saying what they like and dislike about them

 

 

 Evaluate their product against original design criteria e.g. how well it meets its intended purpose

 Disassemble and evaluate familiar products

 

 

 Evaluate their work both during and at the end of the assignment

 Evaluate their products carrying out appropriate tests

 

 

 Evaluate a product against the original design specification

 Evaluate it personally and seek evaluation from others

 

 

Evaluate their products, identifying strengths and areas for development, and carrying out appropriate tests

 Record their evaluations using drawings with labels

 Evaluate against their original criteria and suggest ways that their product could be improved
