Designing and Making with Textiles at Lower Key Stage Two: Designing a Simple Sampler
One of the trial units from the Nuffield Primary Solutions in Design and Technology. In this unit, children design and make a 'simpler sampler' using fabric crayons and patterns derived from handwriting patterns.
The purpose of the activity is to create modern samplers to display handwriting patterns. This could be linked to work on the Victorians, and will lead to comparisons between schoolwork then and now. Examples of samplers will help to generate the discussion.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
