S2 Design & Technology

Course Overview

In S2 we build on the design skills acquired in S1. Our students develop more complex graphic skills, again tied to design projects. Topics covered include: Orthographic and Isometric drawing, Paper gripper project (design and manufacture), Display stand project (design and manufacture), Bud vase project (design and manufacture), 2-point perspective sketching, illustration (graded tones).

Organisation of Resources

Pupils are issued with a class folder for storing their classwork and homework.


Our S2 course follows the Experiences and Outcomes outlined in A Curriculum for Excellence. We use teacher-led demonstration and many formative assessment strategies to give pupils the opportunity to demonstrate and improve their knowledge, practical skills and skills for learning, life and work.


Pupils sit a test at the end of each block of teaching. The test assesses knowledge and understanding as well as problem solving skills.


Homework is set regularly to support and consolidate classroom experiences. Some homework assignments will require pupils to carry out research in their own time.
