Main Lesson Activities  
The target this week must be to move pupils towards producing a 'final' design idea. Sketches should be developing into more formal drawings and a rendered pictorial view of the final idea should be possible using either oblique, isometric or perspective techniques
In order to move pupils to thinking more widely about what they need to produce, during the double period set a timed task
With very few exceptions pupils would benefit from producing at least one sheet on how they will 'promote' their product. Advertising material for magazines and newspapers, posters/flyers, web sites, point of sale displays and packaging. .
 This will provide opportunity for colour work, simple modelling, additional ICT and may also get pupils to think about commercial viability This should take about 50 minutes
Make use of the project guide booklet as appropriate. Orthographic drawings and model planning, coming up next week!
