Feedback From the Classroom: Cross Curricular Free Resources
After attending a fantastic Textiles Skills Centre ‘Tea ‘n’ Chat’ lead by Nicky Simpson, on Cross-curricular links, I decided it was time to spread Textiles throughout my school! Nicky had explained how it was important to be seen in departments other than your own, so I decided to team up with the maths department to create a new and exciting display wall.
Using student work created from the free Scheme of Work provided by the Textiles Skills Centre we adorned the walls.
With “Geometry in Fashion” as a starting point, students took a selection of shapes and created a fashion costume illustration, the outcomes were fantastic!
After completing one display board – which the Maths teacher was very happy for me to do – I decided to tackle another department. I visited the computing department where I completed an ICT (now IT) board for product design students!
The free resources really inspired me & have given me new ways of raising awareness around the school, not least forgetting the school reception!
