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.

The images above are JPEG versions. I do have an idraw and Photoshop editable versions but WordPress will not let me upload these (if you would like these drop me a message in the comments section of this post).

RAG sheets for GCSE Art and Photography

To aid my year 10 and 11 classes with planning their mock exams this term I have created a set of RAG sheets for them to complete at the start and end of the lesson. I have found this helps them to take a few minutes to think about the lesson ahead of them and make a rough plan of action.

I find it is difficult when the students are all at various different stages when working on their mock or real exam prep to think about how to have useful starters and these sheets are a way for all students to settle down and make a quick start on their independent work.

Additionally on these sheets I have included a table for students working at and target grades.

UPDATE: Revised 1-9 Grading versions of these can be found HERE

To help my GCSE students with their mock exam last term I put together a series of handouts/tick sheets that help them to assess where they were and how to get the varying marks for each stage of their preparation.

I have adapted these for the upcoming real exam and have uploaded each sheet at the bottom of this post.

Also I have completed my handout for each of the exam themes for the 2016 AQA Art and Design  GCSE paper and will be sharing this on this blog after the 1st January 2016 so watch this space!

A bit of a tidy up! 

coloured paper

Now the year 11s are on study I had a bit of time today to get on with a job that has been on my to do list for a while now… tidying the coloured paper bits! They were in a large tray all jumbled up and students could never be bothered to dig about in it so they took a new sheet and I ended up with more and more off cuts.  So I decided to consolidate some bits and pieces in trays I have in my cupboards for the paper. I’m hoping that this will help to keep them more organised and be easier for students to get to the colour they are after.
