A to Z of D&T

A to Z of D&T

The A to Z of Design and Technology is a pictorial dictionary of D&T terminology presented as PowerPoint presentations which may also be printed as classroom display cards. The resource consists of clear images of related items, each with a picture, title and definition, covering different focus areas of workshop applications, textiles and food. It includes tools and materials in each of these settings and is aimed at Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils, but is also useful for students at Key Stage 3. Teacher notes accompany the presentations. Published in English and Welsh versions, the resource will act as a stimulus in the classroom and to supplement teaching about different aspects of D&T.

Projects on a Page full pack of 21 planners

Projects on a Page full pack of 21 planners

The Projects on a Page scheme of work was introduced in 2014 to help primary schools in England implement the National Curriculum for D&T in an imaginative way. Based on universal principles of effective teaching and learning in D&T, it is also a valuable resource for schools in other parts of the UK and further afield. This scheme of work has been developed by the D&T Association’s Primary Working Group in association with D&T primary consultants. It comprises 21 A3 size project planners that give scope for teachers to use their creativity and professional judgment, whilst ensuring the quality, integrity and rigour of children’s learning. Each planner has 20-step planning guidance and accompanying teaching tips and techniques, a glossary, an example of iterative design appropriate to the project, and practical advice on using resources, useful sketches and diagrams in a helpsheet format to support teachers delivering the project in the classroom. Also included are suggestions on class organisation, links to resources and a glossary of technical terminology related to the project. A guidance booklet shows how to use the planners to full effect and the context in which they should be used.

Transport Bundle

Transport Bundle

This is a set of presentations about different forms of transport. The presentations would be a great way of getting a class to use a wider range of descriptive terms, especially when it comes to describing colours, the locations and the number of wheels they can count. This a good way to introduce the topic of cars and transport. I have also included two 'Talk a lot' teaching units about transport and cars. Finally, I also included the car free day presentation, to see how many different forms of transport the children can identify. Ask your students to describe what are the pros and cons of using each type of transport.
