Description Learners think about and discuss what they know about bag designers and bags before exploring and researching textiles and textile fibres. They consider natural, synthetic and modern fibres, the three stages required to make textile materials, the different properties of fibre blends and how these properties affect the end use of fibres. Learners use their findings and ideas to decide what second-hand or recycled textiles to use to make a bag of their choice. They develop a design specification for their bag and follow this to create their bag, before considering how to display their final products. All Rich Activities are available to buy in English and Welsh.

Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

A range of engaging and exciting rich activities for use in the classroom to improve learners’ literacy and numeracy skills, as in the LNF. These activities will be posted to school on a memory stick. These can then be printed in-school when needed.

The activities also aim to develop learners’ problem solving, critical and creative thinking skills. Each rich activity has Teacher’s notes, to show how it links with the curriculum and the LNF, instructions as to how to prepare for and carry out the activity, and a grid demonstrating which elements/aspects of the LNF could be assessed. Each rich activity covers several teaching hours and is broken up into a number of tasks, to be used with pairs or groups of learners, with focus questions to elicit understanding.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Learners think about and discuss what they know about bag designers and bags before exploring and researching textiles and textile fibres. They consider natural, synthetic and modern fibres, the three stages required to make textile materials, the different properties of fibre blends and how these properties affect the end use of fibres. Learners use their findings and ideas to decide what second-hand or recycled textiles to use to make a bag of their choice. They develop a design specification for their bag and follow this to create their bag, before considering how to display their final products.

 

LNF links: literacy

Curriculum links: science, design & technology and art & design.

How users/participants can evaluate success

The rich activities in themselves can be used to assess learners' current position and develop next steps for improvement. In addition, baseline test outcomes on Literacy and/or Numeracy can be compared with evidenced outcomes from the rich activity.  

Follow-up activities and support

Further rich activities are available to be used with learners from Foundation Phase to Key Stage 3. To view the full range of rich activities on offer visit www.thinklearnchallenge.com/pick-n-mix.html or contact [email protected] .
