Design and Technologies
Years 5 and 6
Design and Technologies - Above satisfactory - Years 5 and 6
This portfolio of student work shows that the student can describe competing considerations in the design of products, services and environments, taking into account sustainability (WS1, WS2, WS3). The student describes how design and technologies contribute to meeting present and future needs (WS3) and explains how the features of technologies impact on designed solutions for each of the prescribed technologies contexts (WS1, WS2, WS3).
The student can create designed solutions for each of the prescribed technologies contexts suitable for identified needs or opportunities (WS1, WS2, WS3). The student suggests criteria for success, including sustainability considerations, and uses these to evaluate their ideas and designed solutions (WS1, WS2, WS3). The student combines design ideas and communicates these to audiences using graphical representation techniques and technical terms (WS1, WS2, WS3). The student records project plans including production processes (WS2, WS3) and selects and uses appropriate technologies and techniques correctly and safely to produce designed solutions (WS2, WS3, WS4).
