What can your son/daughter expect in years 7, 8 and 9 at St Ivo?
They will be taught and encouraged to :
Your son/daughter will cover the 4 areas of food, resistant materials, electronics and graphics. Each area will be in blocks of 13 weeks with 2 lessons per week.
They will cover each area twice in rotation so that by the time they make option choices in year 9 they will have completed 26 weeks of each. This will then allow them to make a decision about any areas of D&T they wish to continue with into key stage 4 GCSE. At Key Stage 4 we offer Resistant Materials, Graphics, Electronics, Food and Nutrition, Catering and Child Development.
Design and Technology projects at Key Stage 3.
