Here are a few examples of some takeaway homework sheets that I have developed for Key Stage 3 Art and Design and Year 10 Photography classes.
I have found that these are a great way of setting homework as students are able to select a homework depending on how much time they have for it and what they feel like doing that day.
The Key Stage 3 sheets have a few more rules, such as students must select at least one hot or extra hot task a term etc.
The Key Stage 3 ones have been converted from Pages documents to Word Docs so I hope they work OK for you. The photography ones I can not convert so can be found in my Dropbox as Photoshop files should you wish to have the original editable versions.

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 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.

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.

Hi all I hope you all had a brilliant and relaxing summer!
This year I have made it one of my targets to keep my GCSE art classes all up to date with incomplete and unfinished work. I find that there is nothing worse than looking through a students sketchbook and folder of work and seeing lots of potentially great pieces of work that are not complete!
I have made a chart to put up on my cupboards so that once I have seen a students piece of work and I deem it to be complete it can be ticked off. Both myself and students can then easily see who has work to be completed.
Fingers crossed this will go some way to keeping unfinished work at the front of their minds!
