Textiles Career Buttons for display

Textiles Career Buttons for display

Each textiles career (x17) has been designed into a button shape, and can be printed any size you wish. There are a range of career possibilities to show the versatility of the subject. I have printed and laminated these, cut out and stuck to a wall in my classroom. They are bright and exciting addition to my displays.

Thermoplastics and Thermosetting Plastics Workbook (15 page colour workbook)

Although this comprehensive workbook was designed to cover the in-depth knowledge and understanding of thermoplastics and thermosetting plastics for the new 9-1 Eduqas Design and Technology GCSE, it covers the subject knowledge needed for AQA and most other popular exam boards. This editable workbook provides information to answer questions (with spaces to answer in booklet) to reinforce learning of the following areas of plastics: - Origins of raw materials for natural polymers, petrochemical, and biopolymers. - Exploration and refining of crude oil (inc. environmental impacts) - Fractional distillation and cracking processes (to make usable products from crude oil) - Comparison of the molecular structures and properties of Thermoplastics and Thermosets. - Plastic additives and their functions (Stabilisers, pigments, plasticisers and fragrances). - Stock forms that plastics are available in. - Sustainability and end of life considerations / life cycle assessment. - Biodegradable plastics and biopolymers - Characteristics/working properties of a wide range of common thermoplastics, thermosets and biodegradable plastics. (Please note that this workbook does not cover plastics forming/moulding processes. This will be included in a future resource)

Step  by step guide to PJ bottoms

Step by step guide to PJ bottoms

My Y9 students make their own PJ bottoms. This is the step by step guide that I give students to follow. Higher ability students can follow this and complete the project successfully. For lower ability students it is a fantastic resource to aid in their understanding. Each page has a set of written instructions supported by photographs. The PJs are made by sewing the crotch seam first, then the inner leg seam followed by the two outer leg seams. An elastic casing is made. Students can also put elastic at the bottom of the leg. I use digital embroidery to decorate and a patch pocket. If students would like they can also do in-seam pockets. Happy to answer any questions you may have.
