This is a stand alone project that lasts approx 6 hours. It was created for at home learning in the event of a school closure. The project takes pupils through the design process where they will consider different types of exercise they could do at home, research sportswear brands and then design ‘lockdown sportswear’ for their chosen sport and brand. This can be completed on paper, in a workbook or on a computer. The resource includes worksheets that can be printed out.
