I have been updating my school Photography department website and it now has all the resources uploaded for the Year 10 Alive! Photography/Animation project.
This project lasted 6 weeks (I have three 1 hour sessions a week).
Here is the SOW:Yr10 Alive SOW COPY
Here is is the link to the Powerpoints on the Department website: Alive YR10 Project Powerpoints
Once again I have put together a handout to aid my students when they are selecting their theme from this years AQA Art and Design paper. I hope it saves others some time and is of some use!
Here is the link for the PowerPoint presentation (it was originally made in Keynote so apologies for any movement of objects in the export): Exam Themes 2016 PP
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!

I do also have editable Photoshop files but I can not upload these on WordPress so if you would like these please add a request in the comments section and I will email them over to you.
This term I have spent working thorough the basis of using the DSLR camera. Hopefully this should give my GCSE Photography class a solid understanding of the basics, such as shutter speed, aperture, ISOs, composition etc, before they undertake more project/theme based work later this term.
I have uploaded all of my lesson Powerpoints to the department website which is here:
‘The Basics’ lesson Powerpoints
Here is my scheme of work also:

As you can see from my last post I am in full resource making mode now the summer holidays are nearly over I am trying to get my Department Photography Website finished. I am very nearly there and just need to complete a couple of pages.
I will be adding my class presentations, student work and their websites as the year progresses so keep checking back for updates!

My school are introducing AQA GCSE Photography in September so this summer I have been busy creating resources to get it of an running.
I give all my GCSE Art and Design Students a handbook which has items like the course structure, project titles and overviews, the Assessment Objectives and Grade guidance and I have found this to be both helpful for the students and parents. So I decided to do a little tweaking and adapt this for my new Photography students.

We have just held our first whole school creative arts show and it has been fab to see all the students work up and on display. We are a tiny school with a wide variety of student abilities but as you can see this has not stopped them from creating some great work.
Year 10 and I dug out the old display boards and worked together to display the work. The students enjoyed planning and working out how best to display their work in the space available.
We had a great turn out from past students, current students, parents and grandparents. I am already thinking about how we can improve and expand next year!
