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).

Summer Holidays and a Scheme of work!

GCSE Art Scheme of Work

WOW! What a term! In my mind I always feel like the Summer term should be the easiest, its the shortest and it should be the wind down… But it never is! What with the last rush to get work finished ready for marking, the Art Exhibition, exam marking and moderation, detailed reports to write for the year, not to mention end of term activity days out… So I have not had two minutes to spare to update my blog.

But now that I have finished for the summer I have set some time aside to upload a scheme of work that I have used for the last few years for my Year 10 classes in the Summer term. It is based on a visit to Brighton but you could adapt it for a visit to any local place of interest.

Enjoy!

Art GCSE Exam Course Structure

GCSE ART Assessment SheetsTo 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!

GCSE Photography Handbook

GCSE Photography Handbook Cover

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.
