Back to school assembly for September 2018.

(1)
Cut your workload with this Back to school assembly Powerpoint. 20 fully editable slides welcoming students back to school. Each slide has an eye catching image and emphasises the important points that children should consider as they set off on what will hopefully be another successful year. Slides highlight the following areas. The need for balance in life Friendship Hard work Being kind Engaging in lessons Supporting each other Asking for help … and more. This resource is fully editable because, let’s be honest, the chances of designing an assembly Powerpoint that absolutely hits everything you want to say are quite remote. We hope that this really reduces your workload though so that you can enjoy that last few days of the holiday. Good luck for the new academic year.

Moving from DT Textiles to Art Textiles? This 38 page resource guides GCSE Art Textiles students through a component of work. The theme here is Natural Forms and students are encouraged to collect primary source evidence before using a wide range of textiles related techniques in the development of their work. The support document ensures that students address the four Assessment Objectives and are reflective in the way that they progress their work. Students can either use the resource as a work book, adding information to it, or use it as a guide which they (and the teacher) can expand upon. This is a useful support document for DT textiles teachers who have suddenly found themselves having to deliver Art Textiles because DT textiles has been scrapped! Also a great STEAM resource.
