The Year 8 experience

It’s likely this will be the first time an 11-year-old has been in a manufacturing environment.

During Key Stage 2 they will have had many opportunities to enter the design world but limited means to manufacture their creation to a high standard. So much to their excitement, this will be their chance to see their designs come to life as a working product. But an enjoyable learning experience does never come at the cost of safety. A great emphasis is placed on personal and group safety during technology sessions, especially during the first term of year 8.

It is my goal that year 8 will have both an enjoyable and safe experience. To achieve this I have developed unique units of work that I find pupils enjoy and respond to positively.

Unit 1 – The spaghetti measure project. Pupils will use hand tools and machines to produce a Spaghetti measure in beech hardwood.

In this project pupils mark out, cut, file, drill, sand and danish oil their final piece to a high standard.

They will complete a theory booklet alongside their practical where they will learn about Technology processes, materials, tools and machinery.  They will carry out a product evaluation after completing the manufacture of their project.  Finally pupils use a basic graphics software package to represent their design using ICT.

Unit 2 - Coat hanger project

Pupils will use hand tools and machines to produce a coat hook.

In this project pupils mark out, cut, file, drill, sand and danish oil their final piece to a high standard.

They will complete a theory booklet alongside their practical where they will learn about Technology processes, materials, tools and machinery.  They will carry out a product evaluation after completing the manufacture of their project.  Finally pupils use a basic graphics software package to represent their design using ICT.
