KS3 Education

NOTE: This page is currently being updated.

Hello all fellow teachers! As a teacher myself I am often told by others that they struggle to find appropriate resources to cover sustainable fashion (and design) topics within their own curriculum at KS1-3. This area will provide a range of resources which have been tried and tested within my own classroom over that last 5 years of teaching. They have been sold of TES for a number of years but I am now making them available through this site for free, but ask that you include references to SustFashWales.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS & THE CURRICULUM FOR WALES

SDG’s Passport
The SDG’s are central to the new Curriculum for Wales. Within D&T we are able to teach children about the goals across our disciplines. I have created this SDG’s passport for use within my classroom. It’s designed to be used throughout KS3 starting at Year 7. Pupils write a short note each time a goal is covered. Then they collect passport stamps which are exchanged for eco-rewards (up to individual school) during year 9. This resource is for sale on TES but I am offering it free of charge here. The passport is copyright protected, you may print as many as you like, and even add your school logo to the cover but SustFashWales credit must remain on the booklet.
