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.

Here is my last powerpoint linked to the AQA 2018 Photography paper. I hope that it is helpful to you and your students!
Again I created the powerpoint on Keynote and exported it to PowerPoint so some text etc may have moved about in the export.

I have just updated my GCSE Photography guides that I give to students to support their work. They now show more clearly the different levels of complexity within each task, so I expect ALL students to complete the green statements/questions, MOST students to complete the orange statements/questions and SOME students might attempt the blue statements/questions.
I hope that this will both support my lower level students and push my middling to higher students.

Each half term and end of term I set a school wide photography challenge, these usually consist of a set of 20 to 25 words that students have to capture in a photograph. I have found it has been a really great way to promote the subject across the school and get students thinking creativity during the break. Once the students return their images I have the head decide on a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and any highly commended images, these students (and sometimes staff) then receive certificates and prizes that are handed out in assembly.
Below I have added small selection of images that I have received from past competitions:
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.
