Engineering

 

Intent

To create: 

In Engineering at St Edmunds,  our aim is that learners will develop their curiosity, inquisitiveness, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, so that they can progress successfully through the key stages, onto further and higher education and then into a successful Engineering career. Students will learn transferable skills that will equip them for their future, everyday lives. We have developed an Engineering curriculum which gives opportunities to all pupils to create a culture of high aspirations; raises standards of personal and academic achievement and allows all young lives to achieve success, regardless of their starting point. 

 

Implementation 

Clear lines of progression through key stage 3 ensures good progression. Our focus is Design, Make, Evaluate, and hands on Technical skills and knowledge which will lead them on to Keystage 4, where we offer a Level 1 /2 OCR Cambridge National qualification in Engineering Design

 

Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9)

Year 7: Wooden Animal Pencil Holder
In Year 7 pupils will be able to:
  • interpret a product specification to design and make a working prototype model.  
  • use accurate measurements to be able to make a prototype model.  
  • use the Engineering tools/equipment and machines safely whilst wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) during production processes.  
  • produce an accurate measured 3D engineering drawing (e.g., oblique drawing) adorned with detailed rendering.  
  • use tools and processes to cut, shape and smooth materials with high precision accuracy, independently.  
  • independently problem solve or anticipate problems before they occur. 
  • Write an evaluation about the design and making process, making suggested improvements.  
  • Act on teachers’ feedback on how to improve the work as it progresses. 
Year 8: Wooden Vehicle Design
Year 8 pupils will be able to:
  • produce highly accurate measured 3D engineering drawings (e.g., isometric, and oblique drawings) with detailed rendering.  
  • annotated and labelled the engineering drawings, using the correct subject vocabulary and spellings.  
  • interpret the brief and the specifications to design and produce a final design proposal.  
  • judge their design proposal against the product specification (considering features, function, materials, aesthetics, ergonomics, health, and safety). 
  • use tools and processes to cut, shape and smooth materials with high precision and accuracy, independently.  
  • problem solve or anticipate problems before they occur.    
  • use accurate measurements to be able to make a working prototype model. 
  • Write an evaluation about the design and making process, making suggested improvements.  
  • Act on teachers’ feedback on how to improve the work as it progresses. 
‚ÄčYear 9: CAD/CAM and Technical Drawing
Year 9 pupils will be able to:
  • Produce accurately measured hand drawn and CAD produced 2D and 3D engineering drawings (e.g.,3rd angle orthographic, isometric, and oblique drawings) with detailed rendering where appropriate.  
  • Label and annotate, using the correct Engineering vocabulary and spellings. 
  • use CAD/CAM applications independently to produce and communicate design proposals. 
  • use preparation and assembly methods to build a product.  
  • problem solve or anticipate problems before they occur.   
  • Act on teachers’ feedback on how to improve the work as it progresses. 

Key Stage 4 (Year 10 - 11)

Qualification:

Cambridge National Certificate in Engineering Design – J841

 

The Cambridge National Certificate in Engineering Design is equivalent to GCSE and is recognised by all 16-19 college providers as progression to A level, further Education, apprenticeships or work. The qualification is designed to allow students the freedom to develop products in their own way using a wide range of drawing and production skills available to them.

The emphasis is on the researching, designing, development and planning stages of the design process and the manufacturing element is only a part of that process.

Study will focus on the following areas

l Design briefs, design specifications and user requirements

l Product Analysis and research

l Developing and presenting Engineering designs

l 3D Realisation

Exam and Assessment Information

1 Hour Written Examination 25%

3 x Centre assessed and externally moderated tasks 75%

Grades

There are seven grades to achieve: Pass, Merit and Distinction at Level 1 and Pass, Merit, Distinction and Distinction* at level 2.
