Y13 Key Assessment

Autumn 1

Nuts about Jewellery

students are introduced to metal work by designing and developing a ring from a Brass M10 nut. This will involve observational drawing, working with the metal lathe, understanding how to anneal, file and shape the metal to create the desired form. The students then work on the Polishing Mops to finish of the ring.  

 

A Level Component 1

Continue with Personal Investigation

Autumn 2

3D Natural Forms

3D Natural Forms: Students are introduced to ceramic work based on nature/the natural world. The students investigate a range of sources from artist to designers and existing work. Through various forms of research via visuals and drawings, students develop a design influence by nature that they will create through ceramic work using materials and processes such as: Clay, Modroc, Clay casting, wire work etc

Spring 1

Interior Design and Perspective

Students will be designing the interior of a room, developing its original use to something else. The choice of room is determined by the teacher. Students are also challenged with various drawing tasks.  

 

Drawing a room 

Drawing a city scene – 1 point perspective 

Developing and learning how to draw to scale in 1 point perspective.  

Designing areas and layouts using 2D elevation drawings 

Using Photoshop and 2D design to create digital views/renderings. 

Based on these skills, the students will then survey the room for measurements, create several design ideas based on the concept and then model the final out come through a scaled model.  

 

A Level Component 2 – Externally set Assignment

This is a 15 hour design and make exam. Design briefs will be written and provided by the exam board usually around the February 1st. Following receipt of the paper students should consider the starting points and select one. Students will have a set period for their Preparatory work which should be presented in any suitable format, such as mounted sheets, design sheets, sketchbooks, workbooks, journals, models and maquettes. 

Following the preparatory period, students must complete 10 hours of unaided, supervised time where they build/construct/create their final answer to their chosen brief informed by their preparatory work. 

 

Spring 2

A Level Component 1

The students will begin to focus on an area of design. This is the first major part of their A Level and will continue through to the middle of yr13.

This project is called “Personal Investigation” and should demonstrate the student’s ability to sustain work from an initial starting point to a realisation. It should include evidence of their ability to research and develop ideas and link their work in a meaningful way to relevant critical/contextual materials. This is all organised in a portfolio
