Design & Technology
Key Stage Three
In years 7 and 8 students rotate around four subjects (Food, Textiles, Graphics, and Resistant Materials) and will therefore receive homework tasks at different times of the year depending upon the option being followed. They will complete three homework tasks in each area. In year 9 students take three subjects rather than four and have four homework tasks from each area that they have opted for.
Key Stage 4:
In years 10 and 11 students may have opted for one or more Technology subjects. Students will undertake two distinct types of homework: either coursework (CWK) related e.g. research or tasks that will develop their theoretical knowledge and help to prepare for the external examinations.
