This week’s free resource downloads

Each week we’re aiming to update a page on our website with free resource downloads. Over time this will provide a wide range of resources that can be used in different ways in the classroom e.g. lesson activities, home learning, spaced and retrieval practice activities. Many of these downloads have only previously been available on our courses. The resources were originally designed to support KS3 D&T as well as the D&T GCSE (England) but they are likely to support a range of other qualifications. 


Last week we updated the ‘introduction to timber/wood’ page and this is one of a series of pages on materials we will be adding to over the next few weeks.

This week’s updated page is the ‘introduction to metals’ with 7 resource downloads which follow a similar format to timber resources from last week.
