Week Ending Tasks

Keeping up to date with your coursework in National 5 Design and Manufacture is vital if you are to pass the subject. It is important that you do the tasks and assignments as you get them. There will be something new to do every week so don’t let things build up at home. Use your teacher for advice and help in class. Remember that there won’t always be a class lesson appropriate to what you need to know at that time.

By choosing to do this subject you have agreed to do at least 2 hours study at home each week. This time is necessary to complete class work, undertake research work, collect information and prepare for your written exam. These week ending sheets will help you to keep track of what was done in class that week and what should be completed in preparation for next week.
