Design and technology match up cards - manufacturing, material finishes and key definitions

Set 1 - Material finishes (For metal) Students match definition of metal finish to the image and name. Set 2 - Students match the manufacturing image to its name and to a product that has been made by this type of manufacturing. Set 3 - Students match the keywords to the definitions. I use these sets at different times throughout the year as starters or for quick fire revision sessions.

KS3 Design & Technology Homework Takeaway Sheets

KS3 Design & Technology Homework Takeaway Sheets

These two worksheets are for year 7 & 8 students who are studying Design & Technology. I have designed these to give students three levels/differentiated tasks to choose from which is designed to give them an overview of key areas of the AQA GCSE D&T specification. Tasks start of as beginner, then professional and build up to master tasks. These tasks are built around Blooms Taxonomy and build up in complexity. These worksheets were trialled last year, tweaked and this is the finished product.

NeXTCube - Computing History Poster #4

NeXTCube - Computing History Poster #4

Computing history is an important part of IT education. It helps to know one's roots and to have a greater appreciation of today's technology, and it also promotes interest in how things used to be before the days of the smartphone. This poster gives a (very) brief overview on the history of the NeXTCube, the computer that Tim Berners-Lee famously used to kickstart the World Wide Web, alongside some photos and a high-resolution illustration of the device itself. Oh, and the date's on there...wouldn't want to forget that. This package includes one poster in three different sizes: A2, A3 and A4. The images are in .jpg format and are set in print-ready CMYK colour. Colours in preview images may differ due to differences between RGB and CMYK colour spaces.

Includes both written and visual instructions and has been proven very successful in the classroom! Based upon 6 important Design Technology skills of Sketching, Reflecting, Cutting, Evaluating, Annotating and Isometric. Colour coded for each skill.

Super Helpful GCSE Textiles AQA Coursework Guide 2018 Submission Only

Super Helpful GCSE Textiles AQA Coursework Guide 2018 Submission Only

This is a photo step by step guide with examples and prompt questions of how to complete the AQA Textiles Coursework for the last 2018 submission (as next year will be the new spec product design). This is a god send and will make your life a lot easier for this final year. Its very helpful and includes very single written aspect of the coursework to the point the booklet could deliver this side of the course for you if you needed textiles cover work for an absent teacher. Personally I use it along side teaching the course as a booklet that is kept in the classroom. I made this after going to an AQA coursework course a couple of years ago.
