KS1- Textiles

This list supports learning about textiles with 5–7-year-olds, including designing bicycle accessories, woven fish, fridge magnets and puppets. It provides ideas for developing skills such as cutting and joining textiles together in different ways and there are lots of opportunities for children to work on exploring the properties of different materials and how they have been used to create products. This will help them when designing and making their own product, then evaluating them making any modifications they feel are needed to make them suitable for the purpose that they have been designed for. Ideas for D&T projects include a range of relevant contexts including home, school, industry and the wider environment.
