Day Two - Afternoon

Engaging activities for KS3 & 4

All delegates will be introduced to a range of simple activities that are designed to engage and enthuse students in both KS3 and 4 D&T. Delegates will get to take away the work they produce in the session and will have access to a number of other key resources that can be deployed to further support the development of their curriculum.

Learning outcomes

  • Using visual stimuli and other resources to help avoid fixated outcomes when designing.
