Stimulating resources to ensure that student-led revision is effective across all DT specialisms  

The prospect of having to simultaneously take control of their own revision, identify areas of weakness and ensure they feel prepared for the exams can be overwhelming for learners of any age. So why not make it easier for them by giving them a nudge in the right direction?

As such, we’ve hand-picked a range of well-structured resources to make sure that student-led revision is constructive for each and every pupil.

KS3 resources

Recap timber theory and the uses of different wood types with this concise revision mat. In a similar vein, textiles classes will benefit from looking over this visual aid all about fibres.

Help food technology pupils feel more confident when planning written answers by sharing this revision pack*, containing a comprehensive set of keywords and technical terms.

KS4 resources

Based on the theme of India, this revision booklet gives your GCSE textiles students the support they need to confidently fill in the gaps with their own interpretations.

To ensure that individual revision is as effective as possible, motivate learners to write notes using phrases that they are comfortable with. While these templates break down key areas into digestible chunks ahead of a catering exam, this materials worksheet, when printed on A3 paper, is the perfect place for pupils to consolidate their learning. 

Post-16 resources

For a structured recap of fabric construction, consumer protection and much more, this detailed workbook allows AS-level textiles pupils to cover the essential information that forms the foundation for more complex revision.  

Encourage A2 product design students to delve into a range of topics with help from these e-worksheets, which can be printed and taken on study leave. Equally, this complete revision booklet* explains all of the key content in a condensed format.
