I have been running the above scheme of work this term with my Year 10 class. The majority of the class are generally fairly low ability but so far they have produced some great work that they are enjoying.
We are moving on to developing designs for the ceramic pieces after the half term but I wanted to share the SOW now as I have some free time. Hopefully once the students have created their final pieces I will add some photos of their work! In the meantime I have photographed some of the pages out of their sketchbook for you to see some of the development work.

Once again here is my AQA Art, Craft and Design powerpoint that I create to help my students with the Externally Set Assignment. Each slide shows a number of artists, crafts people and designers that link to each theme given on the paper. All the people identified in the paper are included alongside others that I have found.
I created the powerpoint on Keynote and exported it to PowerPoint so some text etc may have moved about in the export.

I have updated and refreshed my GCSE Art Exam/Mock Exam course structure sheets. They now reflect the 1-9 grades, include the revised wording to match the AQA Specification and go up to 24 marks instead of 20.
As before the jpegs and Powerpoint that includes the tick boxes can be downloaded below

I know the current year 10’s are working on the 1-9 grades but I just have not have the time to get all my resources updated until now. So here is the first updated resource, my GCSE Art and Design Handbook. I usually give this to the year 9’s who have chosen Art at the end of the summer term along with their summer project work. I also email it to all parents so they know a little about the course and how to support their child (as I find a large number of parents struggle to understand how to support their child in this subject).

To help my students effectively plan their 10 hour ‘exam’ time I have drawn up a question sheet that hopefully helps them to consider what they need to do.

This is a quick holding post to let everyone know that I will be producing my externally set tasks powerpoint again this year BUT it will be slightly later as my exams officer did not submit my estimated entries so I will not get access to the tasks online until the 1st Jan. I am planning to get the powerpoints completed for the 4th so will upload them then.
This year I will have an Art and Design one AND a photography one as this is the first year I have had a year 11 photography class.
