A collection of 24 differentiated worksheets for a variety of Design and Technology topics. They were initially used as homework sheets but they can be used in lessons. Aimed mainly at Key stage 3 but some may be suitable for KS4. Includes: - vocabulary - tools and equipment - materials - soldering - briefs and specifications - motion, levers and linkages
Introduction to smart materials when you just don’t have enough time or resources to give everyone a smart material to experiment with. Good revision lesson too. Includes: Video link introduction Key Vocubulary Smart Material animations Mini Review Scaffolding Tasks Example GCSE Questions Exit Card.
A powerpoint of 24 lesson starters for Design Technology. Great for KS3 especially. Minimal preparation required, just need a projector! Topics cover resistant materials, graphics and product design.
A collection of design and technology starters aimed at GCSE. Each slide includes a ‘odd one out’ question and a 'what can you see in the picture?' These are to provoke general discussion and revision. Also includes the answers. There was 16 starters in total. I’ve attached a PDF and powerpoint version of this.
This is a detailed 5 week plan for a series of Year 1 Design and Technology lessons in which they will investigate and evaluate existing models, then design, make and evaluate their own animal enclosures. All that is required is images of animal habitats or zoo enclosures, and junk modelling equipment. This series of 5 or more lessons is great alongside Science lessons around animals and habitats, and also works well in conjunction with a visit to a local zoo, where the children can investigate real animal enclosures as well as photos. It has always led to successful outcomes with the classes I have used it with.
Non-Exam Assessment Example for AQA GCSE Design and Technology. This resource demonstrates an outline of what information should be included for each page of the Non-Exam Assessment. It is student-friendly; I currently use this resource for students to assist them, they find this helpful and often refer to it. It can be adapted to suit NEAs across Design and Technology
These clear, detailed and visually-appealing resources offer a complete reference point for children, teachers and parents building knowledge of the Primary Design and Technology curriculum. The organisers are clear, logical and fully aligned with the expectations of the National Curriculum. Included are organisers based on: -KS1 Structures: Freestanding Structures -KS2 Structures: Shell Structures; -KS2 Structures: Frame Structures; -KS1 Mechanisms: Slides and Levers; -KS1 Mechanisms: Wheels and Axles; -KS2 Mechanisms: Gears and Pulleys; -KS1 Textiles: Joining Techniques; -KS2 Textiles: Simple Sewing; -KS2 Textiles: More Complex Sewing; -KS2 Electrical Systems: Simple Circuits and Switches; -KS2 Electrical Systems: More Complex Circuits and Switches; -KS1 Food and Nutrition: Preparing Food -KS2 Food and Nutrition: Healthy and Varied Diet; -KS2 Food and Nutrition: Culture and Seasonality The resources are designed to be printed onto A3 (although can be printed onto A4), and are provided in both PDF and Word versions (so that you can edit if you want to). All images used are licensed for commercial use and are cited on a separate document (included).
Over 100 slides and an accompanying 16 page workbook to aid delivery of the electrical and electronic systems sections of the new AQA GCSE Engineering specification and the new AQA GCSE Design and Technology specification. Includes slides, animations and questions on: power supplies, system diagrams, input and output devices, process devices (timers, counters, comparators, logic, microcontrollers), transistors.
For KS3 Design Technology. Great for cover, homework or as part of a lesson. 2 worksheets for developing numeracy skills and using a ruler to produce measurements in cm/mm. Tried and tested.
After some research and necessary updating of our baseline test for year 7, I have created the following resource to encompass all of the areas within KS3 DT (for my department this is Product Design (timber, metal, plastics, electronics) F&N and Textiles. The resource is broken down in to a page roughly for each subject area, with focus on numeracy, measuring and basic use of equipment. Identification of tools and machinery in the department are also included as well as more detailed questions for F&N, including hygiene and a design based task to measure creativity, design skills etc. I have yet to develop a mark scheme for this, but the test has been made simple enough for marking to allow for peer assessment, with the design question being the only one that may require teacher critique. I hope you find it useful, please leave some feedback! Enjoy, GB
Unit of work related to unit 1 of WJEC Level 1/2 Engineering focusing on redesign of a computer mouse. Numerous lessons shown with WAGOLL, success criteria and learning intents.
5 Tasks that Ks3 pupils can be getting on with for remote learning. Designed for 5 weeks worth of work but can be adapted if needed. Tasks are; Parachute Challenge Marble Run Challenge Bridge Design Milk Jug Upcycle Scale Model
Differentiation. One of the most important things in every classroom, but sometimes the hardest to manage. Skills Strips are a visual aid that helps low level learners with instructions in the classroom Includes 6 pre-designed Technology skills : Sketching, Reflecting, Isometric, Evaluating, Analysing and Cutting. -6 different technology skills cards already set up, ready to print and use. -Print A3 and laminate so that students can tick off stages as they work. -Can be fully edited and adapted using PowerPoint.

This is a selection of images and objects for students to work out what objects are and to think outside the box. I use these as little starters to get students to think visually as soon as they come in the room. There is also images of everyday objects for students to think of other uses forcing them to be creative and inventive.
