Fibres and Fabric Knowledge Organisers Textiles WJEC

(0)
The theory side of teaching GCSE DT textiles was so new to me after teaching Art Textiles for 10 years. When delivering the theory content to the students I find that knowledge organisers distil and clarify the building blocks of learning in my subject ready to extend into the classroom learning. The don’t replace my other lesson resources but rather make it explicit what students need to know automatically to be able to apply and develop in lessons. My students use these knowledge organisers alongside worksheets and other classroom based tasks. There are two knowledge organisers attached. Once downloaded you can change the school logo. These knowledge organisers can be used across exam boards but focus on WJEC 2.1.2 natural, synthetic, blended and mixed fibres.

Task 1 - Hundertwasser Research

My Year 7 class have just started a new project on the artist Hundertwasser and this is a great first lesson to complete during the lockdown and whilst facilitating online learning. This is a research task to get the students started on developing a deeper understanding of the artist, his beliefs and philosophy. Attached are the following documents: A powerpoint which includes the big picture, learning objectives, progress check, QR links to useful websites and a QR link to a informative YouTube video. A 3 page visual fact file about Hundertwasser and his life and work. A worksheet for the students to complete which can also be coverted into a google doc. The questions are differentiated from red to green and get more challenging, with an extension task at the end.

This is a power-point which could be delivered over a number of lessons and with the current situation is perfect for a non-specialist classroom - all you need is needle/thread. This was one of the first projects I delivered around 6 years ago whist teaching Art Textiles and uploaded to TES a year ago. I can believe it had over 1k downloads! I have taken down and re-jazzed my power-point so it is more contemporary and fits in with my schools 5 principles of excellence. This power-point includes: Do Now Connect Task The Big Picture Learning Objectives Information about Maurizio Anzeri Models excellence and WAGOLL Shows how the project could be developed digitally Mini Artist Analysis Models excellent use of analysis Plenary Connect Activity introduces students so a second artist Hagar Vardimon Any questions please contact me on twitter @CreativeSammie

Task 2 Hundertwasser Artist Research Page

I have just started a new project with Year 7 and this is task 2 which asks them to further explore the work of Hundertwasser through the use of an artist research page. They have not made one before so this lesson also demonstrates WAGOLL and models excellence. This lesson can be taught across 2-3 lessons. I have set this as a home learning task and created a YouTube video tutorial to accompany the lesson. This lesson includes, do now connect activities, the big picture, learning objectives, WAGOLL, student examplars, and a progress check page. I also go into detail and demonstrate how to analyse a piece of artwork and hoe to annotate their own copies of the artists work.

Year 7 are doing a gargoyle project. In their books they create a research page. Due to covid and being in the same classrooms and having no access to computers/printers they struggle with homework task of research etc. To support learners who don’t have access, I have created this knowledge organiser to use in the classroom. I can laminate and use them year upon year to save on resources and also use them during starter activity where I ask questions and they have to source the answers on the knowledge organiser.

For Sept 2021-22 I have a split class at DT whereby I will be seeing Year 7 only once a fortnight on the rotation. ***Adding the PowerPoints as extra as I make them. I have been tasked with running a mini textiles project over 6-8 lessons focusing on the techniques hand embroidery and applique. Inspired by Sonia Delaunay’s use of colour and shape, students are going to design and make a textile greeting card. They will be given a brown kraft A6 card and envelope along with a piece of white cotton/felt. They will then use a range of coloured felt, batik, bondaweb and hand embroidery stitches to make a textile composition to decorate the front of their card. This mini booklet is larger than it needs to be however I can set a few tasks for homework etc. The second page is blank and that is for the marking grid. The booklet includes a range of tasks: Sonia Delaunay Fact File Design Brief Mood Board - Homework Product Analysis Specification and Designing Applique and Hand Embroidery (Extension Task) Evaluation Glossary

Imaginary Insect Paper Cutting Activity

This lesson(s) has lent itself really well to the current covid restrictions. The lesson can be completed in a non-specialist classroom and students required minimal equipment. KS3 complete an insect project and this one off paper cutting lesson is a perfect addition. You can expand the lesson to talk about negative/positive space. Students moving on from their observational drawings to complete a paper cutting of an imaginary insect. The equipment needed is a black sheet or paper, white/yellow pencil, scissors and a glue stick. My lesson follows the schools 5 principles of excellence so my powerpoint includes a connect activity, the big picture, lesson objectives, WAGOLL, a peer assessment slide and a plenary activity.

Art Animal Baseline Test Year 7 Introductory Lesson

This is a great first lesson for Year 7. Once students have been taught about the visual elements students can revisit this task to show progress. This lesson is used to test what know students already have of the formal elements. Without any guidance students complete a baseline test which is a drawing of a parrot. This enables me to gain an understanding of their ability and opens up discussion in lesson 2 about the visual elements. It can also be used to collect their current WAG for data collection. My power-point follows my schools five principles of excellent which includes a do now connect task, the big picture, learning objectives, progress check and an assessment worksheet.
