NEA Guide - Design Technology (DT) GCSE

NEA Guide - Design Technology (DT) GCSE

(0)
A super simple guide for the AQA Design Technology GCSE although it could be adapted to meet other specifications. A page layout guide, tips for each page and guidance on how to write different sections. This was a labour of love and has been the best guide that I have given my students.
Student Loyalty Cards

Student Loyalty Cards

(0)
Loyalty Cards for use with classes. Can be customised to suit subject/reward etc. and can also have pictures added on. I have used these primarily with low ability groups for a bit of motivation which worked really well. They do inspire a bit of enthusiasm when used. Adobe and PowerPoint files included, both with an example of my personal loyalty cards on. Price to reflect effort it took to produce the original file.
Student Reward Cards

Student Reward Cards

(0)
Reward cards for students that are ‘scratchable’ (or could be chosen from a box blindly). Examples included. When printing, scale slides on the PowerPoint document and fit to page for the Illustrator file. Personally I favour the Illustrator file. The ‘scratchable’ part measures 25mm x 25mm with the stickers being able to be bought from ebay for next to nothing. Adds a cool exiting part to the reward. I like to put certain Bitmojis with certain rewards, so I can tell which is which without scratching. It also means you could potentially give certain rewards to some e.g. the homework pass to someone who regularly completes it, not to someone who doesn’t.
Poor Behaviour Letter for Parents

Poor Behaviour Letter for Parents

(0)
A letter with highlighted sections to edit to suit you. I have used this particular format many times and parents are usually supportive. I would normally try to phone the parent first but that is my personal preference.
Form Tutor Pack

Form Tutor Pack

A pack of essential form tutor items. Good for Year 7 form in particular but any range range would enjoy the bookmarks and cupcakes. Parent letter included for ease.
D&T Workshop Tools Display

D&T Workshop Tools Display

(0)
Time consuming venture reflected in the price. Workshop tools display showing hand tools and workshop machinery. This was made for my classroom wall where there was nothing visual for the students to look at. The signs are made with this room in mind but is adaptable for any workshop. The focus of each is to show the tool, a working method and then what the tool is used for. Some tools are similar but show a different technique. Examples are included above. PowerPoint file included for easier personalisation. Fonts are embedded in the files - I called my display ‘Don’t call it a Thingy!’ as students were regularly forgetting the right word.
Reading Book/Planner Bookmarks

Reading Book/Planner Bookmarks

(0)
Bookmarks for student reading books or planners - a nice form activity regardless of age range. One side has inspiration quotes on them, the other is blank for a name. All are set to print double sided for ease with the fonts embedded into the file. If you go onto slide master after downloading, you will be able to change the background image.
KS3/4 - Drawing Pencil of Power

KS3/4 - Drawing Pencil of Power

(0)
A pencil bookmark/table prompt/checklist for improving students design/drawing work. Meant for use primarily for secondary school students but can be adapted for Primary level students. It is pretty self explanatory once you download the file. Originally this was made during my teacher training. After finding these at the bottom of a box at my parents, I decided to share the digital version on TES. The font used on the pictures for the headings is one called ‘coffee+tea’ downloadable from DaFont.com. For my downloads, I have changed the font as it was only a demo one.

Famous Designers Table Sign

(0)
Table centre pictures for equipment pots etc. Each one with a famous designer (AQA specification) with some products they have designed, description of themselves and a famous quote. I have used them for the table centres as well as an information finding activity. Could be permanently attached to a particular desk or move pots around so the children learn something new about a different person each time. Fully customisable with colour, font etc. Price to reflect time and effort it took to produce the resource.
Growth Mindset Table Signs

Fully customisable with colour font etc. I have used them on my equipment pots which I place in the centre of the table. There is is a few of them so price to reflect effort and time took to produce.

A quick sheet made for a mid-low ability Year 8 group. I made this so they can get it out each lesson to help them but also so it wasn’t me continually speaking all lesson. PDF included for speed of printing. PowerPoint included in case any edits need to be made for your students

Birthday Month Cupcakes and Candles

(0)
Some themed mini cupcakes I drew on Illustrator to use in my form for birthdays. This and matching candles for the names. Each one is themed around an event that usually takes place in that month. For example, December is a Christmas tree and September is Back to School. **There are also some blank ones for people who want just one colour cake or rainbow. ** Resource is paid based on the amount of time it took for me to draw them individually.

Sanding Technique Helpsheet

(0)
A help sheet with space for samples of sandpaper to be stuck on. This help sheet was made with a low ability un-resilient group in mind but could be adapted to suit any. There is a side showing/explaining sandpaper. On the other side are the common excuses or reasons I get for not completing work to standard or ‘complaining’ after 5 minutes graft… There are also the tips I give to students to maximise the results when they are sanding by hand.
