1. STATEMENT OF THE PUPILS PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS


The students in this first year group will have completed a limited amount of practical
done so far. They were involved in a taster program for the first term of the year. They
will have a very basic comprehension of a few of the hand tools used in the classroom
such as knives, chisels, sanding blocks and tennon saw. The students will have completed
one project over a six week period before Christmas, which was a scissors rack. During
the course of this project students gain experience in using tools such as a tri-square,
bench vice, marking gauge, ruler, knives, chisel, tennon saw and pyrography machine.
Because the students took part in a taster program, they have not completed any theory
classes. The students that will be in the class group I will be teaching in January have
chosen MTW this would suggest that the level of interest in the subject should be
significantly higher.

The theory topics I will introduce are health and safety, uses of timber, tree growth and
hand tools. Teaching of these topics will be integrated with the practical project. During
the project the practical use of the timber will lead into a discussion of the characteristics,
defects and properties.
During my first class with this group I will introduce rules and routines regarding, best
practice, health and safety. These rules and routines will be frequently enforced
throughout the scheme.

2. RATIONALE FOR THE SELECTION & STRUCTURING OF SUBJECT


MATTER AND FOR THE METHODOLOGY
During my first lesson with this group I will introduce myself to the students. I will also
familiarize the students with the project they will be constructing over the next six weeks.
I will distribute a basic drawing of the birdhouse with two areas highlighted that the
students can change. This will give students an input into the design and put their own
stamp on the project. Design is a major aspect in the syllabus for MTW and should be a
part of every project they do. I have a PowerPoint presentation to show the students
different designs of birdhouses ranging from simple construction to extremely elaborate.
This is to give students an insight into the design process. To build on this I will also have
the students create a mini portfolio, this will give students a preview of what will be
expected of them in third year. When the students have completed the project, they will
be hanging the birdhouses up in their local community. I have been coordinating with the
tidy town community and we have identified three areas that would be ideal to hang the
birdhouses up.
For the theory topics I will try and integrate it with the practical classes. For health and
safety I will have the students list any risks they see in the classrooms. I have taken
pictures of the woodwork room and highlighted all the areas that have health and safety
issues. During practical classes I will have discussions with the group about what other
uses the can think timber can be used for.

3. AIMS
The aims of this scheme are to

Introduce myself to the students

Create a positive working environment

Develop good working relationship with the pupils

Outline classroom rules and routines

Introduce the birdhouse project

Discuss the health and safety concerns in the classroom

Encourage pupils to participate in the design process

Demonstrate the correct technique and appropriate use of the tools and equipment
being used for this project tri-square, ruler, marking gauge, knife, chisel and pillar
drill.

Distinguish between the different hand tools encouraging students to classify the
tools into categories such as marking out tools, cutting tools and power tools.

Evaluate students ability to read and understand working drawings

Obtain knowledge and skills associated with learning how to join timber

Assess pupils ability to accurately identify tree species and differentiate between
various tree types.

Contribute to the students appreciation of ecological and environmental factors


and use of natural resources

Appraise students work with feedback throughout their project

4. LEARNING OUTCOMES & CORRESPONDING ASSESSMENTS


[The LOs correspond to the aims above, breaking them down into smaller tasks]

Learning Outcomes (LOs)

Assessment of Los

At the end of this scheme the students will be


enabled to

Debate the rules and routines

Identify health and safety concerns


in the classroom

Pupils will be asked to design their


classroom rules and routines

Discuss the health and safety


concerns involved in the project

Design three aspects of their project

Worksheets with the basic drawing


of the birdhouse and three area
highlighted for design change

5. NUMERACY & LITERACY STRATEGY


To help develop students literacy skills I have developed posters of a few of the hand
tools they will be using during the course of their project. Each poster has the parts of the
tools clearly labeled. Posters with parts of the trees labeled and pictures of the different
uses of timber will also be displayed. During my last TP I gave the students word
searches or crosswords as homework this helped to recap the lesson and help students
identify key terms.
For numeracy I will purposely leave out measurements on their working drawing,
students must add or subtract the measurements that are left to find out the size they are
missing.

6. DIFFERENTIATION STRATEGY

I have left three areas on the project that students will be able to change. If any student is
flying ahead I can add another joint to add to the difficulty level. The students can add a
design using the pyrography machine, students will be asked to either filet or round the
edges of the front and back of the base. I will also try and add another joint for the
stronger students, if that is not possible I will have the stronger students peer teaching
any student is struggling.
