I have uploaded 5 lesson PPTs that help students design and make their own monogram. There is also a simple 3 page book that works with the PPTs.
Lesson 1: You explore mongrams, what works well and what is a poor example of a mongram. Students to design by hand their own mongram.
Lesson 2: Students to use the computer and the internet to create their own mongram, printed for the next lesson.
Lesson 3: Demo of how to use the craft knife, safety rule and mat. Students practise using the craft knife through the sheet in their book.
Lesson 4: Students start cutting out their monogram (A5 printed onto paper, A5 coloured card used).
Lesson 5: Extension for students to create a white work pop up card.
I laminate and use this help sheet in my class for all year groups. It lists the equipment and materials needed to complete applique. Clear steps and hand drawn images make it easy for students to follow.
Hope it helps!
I've hand drawn a road with bends, obstacles and one way systems for students to practice machine control on.
It allows students to practice bends and corners without the worry of threading up the machine.
I normal give students 3 mistakes for a pass.
This is great for Y7 students, and the older students love it for a bit of fun!
I've put together 6 different quizzes and their answers for student to use independently or in lessons as part of their revision. We use the AQA exam board, I've taken the answers from last years mark scheme. I printed them double sided so the quiz is on the front and the answers are on the back. Quiz one and two are together on one page, the rest are on single pages.
I hope it's helpful!
This is a quick 5 minute lesson I starter I use with my year 7. I made up some health and safety sentences and chopped them up, putting each part into a box. These were then laminated and cut up.
In 'health and safety.doc' is a list of the sentences, each section has brackets around them. In 'health and safety words.doc' is a list of the phrases twice ready for printing.
This is a JPEG image of the eat well plate.
I usually ask pupils to match up the slice with the category and then perhaps fill in what they have for dinner the night before. You can easily hide the percentages in word by placing a white box over the top.
Hoping it helps.
I drew this picture of the Bernina 1008 sewing machine on photoshop. I hope it is useful!
I often put it on the white board and have laminated words for the different parts of the machine, as a starter students stick these to board with masking tape.
I used the information from the Rough Guide website to create a simple PPT showing information about different traditional wear for different cultures.
I have attached a simple worksheet for students to mind map information.
My Y9 students make their own PJ bottoms. This is the step by step guide that I give students to follow. Higher ability students can follow this and complete the project successfully. For lower ability students it is a fantastic resource to aid in their understanding.
Each page has a set of written instructions supported by photographs.
The PJs are made by sewing the crotch seam first, then the inner leg seam followed by the two outer leg seams. An elastic casing is made. Students can also put elastic at the bottom of the leg.
I use digital embroidery to decorate and a patch pocket. If students would like they can also do in-seam pockets.
Happy to answer any questions you may have.
This document is a full 20 page guide for the AQA controlled assessment.
Each page has step by step information, questions, images, layout information and hints to guide students through their course work. Students can work independently from these sheets ensuring that their work is self guided and applicable to their design brief. Some slides contain work from previous students that have received an A or A* grade.
We have printed a copy for each student to use and make notes on. Therefore their work is in one place and easy to access.
This document has made teaching the controlled assessment so much easier this year, especially as we have two classes with two different teachers. There is a level of continuity that previously we have not had. Students have found the sheets incredibly helpful.
I laminate and use this help sheet in my class for all year groups. It lists the equipment and materials needed to complete reverse applique. Clear steps and hand drawn images make it easy for students to follow.
Hope it helps!
For my current Y7 project we make monster themed pencil cases from coloured fleece. It has a zip through the middle of one side, almost being the 'mouth' of the monster. We often use the packaging from a cereal packet on the inside to give it a 'noise'. This resources is a step by step guide for students to follow to create their pencil case. You can build a project around this resource to fit the time you have for your textiles lessons. It is available in A3, I have enough for one between 2 which is laminated and double sided.
Areas covered within the pencil case:
- seam allowance
- applique/reverse applique
In Y8 students make textile products for electronic items. This is a step by step guide for a draw string bag which students would use to store leads in. The guide is A3 and double sided, I have them laminated and enough for 1 sheet between 2. Students can opt for a single sided draw string or two draw strings.
- Decoration - students choose
- Neatening the edge of fabric
- Use of cord
Part of a SOW for Y8 where they create textiles products for electrical items. This cord tidy can be used for head phone wires, phone chargers and many more. Really simple and easy to make. A4 step by step guide with pictures.
I have attached two different files here. The first is a help sheet for students to use at the sewing machine, it indicates what settings they need for;- a straight stitch- a zig zag stitch- to reverse- to complete free machining.These are also colour coded and important information is written in bold.The second file is a blank picture of the sewing machine I created. I place this up on the board and have laminated copies of the names of parts of the machine. As a starter I get students to come and stick the words to the board. It's a great little reminder at the beginning of the lesson. We also use this in students books which they label when first introduced to the machine.
I made this sheet for my 6th grade who were struggling to remember how to use Bondaweb correctly. To save in photocopying expenses the step by step guide with hand drawn images has been produced three times on one piece of paper.
Can be used for any year group, although I made this for GCSE students to help with revision and delivery of the living conditions needed for bacteria to multiply. There are 5 counters, so up to 5 players can play. There is a set of 16 cards, print 3 sets of these, cut them up and place onto the board. Instructions are written clearly on the board. A dice will be needed to play the game.
