A wide range of Design and Technology (including the New Specification 2017) and Food & Nutrition resources. I hope to save you hours and hours of prep time :) I teach Fashion & Textiles KS3 and KS4 and previously Food & Nutrition KS4 here in Wales (WJEC) and the majority of my resources are designed specifically for these areas however some of my resources can be used across all DT. I'd gladly welcome some feedback and if you see any errors please do let me know!

This 120 page workbook is for the WJEC new specification for Fashion & Textiles. It has been designed to develop pupils in-depth knowledge and understanding (2.1.2 A-J) in design & technology while also covering the practical application of this knowledge which covers the in-depth skills (2.2.2 A-D). Just so you know, I have removed the school logo from the files.

This will prepare pupils for designing and making their own products and also prepare them for the final NEA assessments/examination. It has many pages laid out to place everything from fabric swatches, construction samples and decorative techniques. It also has opportunities for pupils to complete several activities for the more theory based pages. There is also a page for assessment at the back of the book for each of the units 2.1.2 and 2.2.2.

The book covers in depth Unit 2.1.2 A-J:

A Page 4 - Natural, synthetic, blended and mixed fibres.

B Page 28 - Woven and non- woven, and technical textiles.

C Page 39 - Thermoforming and thermosetting polymers.

D Page 42 - Modern and smart materials – This is not covered in here as it is already in the 2.1.1D unit.

E Page 43 - The sources, origins, physical and working properties of materials, components and systems.

F Page 48 - The ways in which the selection of materials or components is influenced by a range of factors such as functional, aesthetic, environmental, availability, cost, social, cultural and ethical.

G Page 52 - Stock forms, types and sizes in order to calculate and determine the quantity of materials or components required.

H Page 54 - Alternative processes that can be used to manufacture products to different scales of production.

I Page 58 Construction: Page 64 - Specialist techniques and processes that can be used to shape, fabricate, construct and assemble a high quality prototype.

J Page 81 - Appropriate surface treatments and finishes that can be applied for functional and aesthetic purposes.

The book also gives an opportunity for pupils to demonstrate their practical application of the skills which covers the 2.2.2 unit. These units are:
A - Select and work with appropriate materials and components in order to produce a prototype.

B - Use appropriate and accurate marking out methods to create a specific outcome.

C - Use specialist techniques and processes to shape, fabricate construct and assemble a high quality prototype, as appropriate to the materials and/or components being used.

D - Use appropriate surface treatments and finishes for functional and aesthetic purposes.

NOTE: I have uploaded the original Word document and a pdf should you have any formatting errors due to specialist font and different versions. If the workbook doesn’t display properly in word then you have the pdf to use instead.

Please let me know if you have any issues and queries and i hope I have saved you many many hours of work! I’ve been working on this almost every day for many weeks!
