KS3 Curriculum Guide - Year 9 Textiles (DT)
Students will be introduced to further key skills building on knowledge from Year 7 and 8 while looking at key elements of the GCSE NEA format. Broken into two projects Year 9 will be taught more complex construction skills, making garments for themselves or a peer, in the form of pyjama shorts and a zip hoodie. In depth knowledge of materials will be gained, while looking into smart and modern fabrics. Students will learn how to create/ adapt patterns to suit a set of measurements that they have taken, while also learning about the environmental impacts of the textile industry and how to minimise this.
Assessment: Pupils will be assessed on their finished products with accompanying written work. A question based assessment will also take place after the first project has been completed.Key Words and Terms
