This week’s free resource downloads

The ‘introduction to textiles fibres’ page is the latest to be updated on the website. It now includes 5 free downloads, all following a similar theme to the ones released in previous weeks on timbers, metals, polymers and paper and board. There will be a second set of textiles related resources next week looking in more detail at textiles fabric construction. The resources are aimed at KS3 and the core content of the D&T GSE but might also be suitable for other qualifications.
