    Just a quick question

    I’m planning DT (primary) and have beenasked to include sheet materials.
    The topic is food packaging (any help on this also is greatly appreciated l!)
    I can’t find information on sheet materials as in what I should cover.
    Can anyone help?

    Thank you for your time

    For food packaging sheet materials work we would just use sheets A4/A3 of (cheap) card.
    Include some stuff about hygiene/environmental concerns etc (good opportunity for XC links) to explain about plastic/foil lined packaging

    You tube has lots of sheet material packaging videos e.g.

    and Googling something like packet and boxes templates will bring up lots of ideas you can use directly or for inspiration

    I thought the title of the thread was a comment on the content that has to be taught as part of the new single title Technology GCSE!
