Fantastic and Strange GCSE Scheme of Work

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.

Year 7 – Clay Tiles

Sea creatures clay tiles

Here are just a few of the year 7’s clay tiles that are waiting to dry and be fired. They were very excited about working with clay and have really tried to follow their designs in their sketchbooks. I can’t wait to see them painted next week!

Having got this years GCSE marking out if the way I wanted to share with you some of the pupils work. The above pupil selected ‘Movement’ as his theme from the list set this year by AQA. He is fascinated by animals and chose to focus on the texture of fur and muscles in animals for his work.
