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).

RAG sheets for GCSE Art and Photography

art-and-photo-rag-sheets

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.

This project lasted 6 weeks (I have three 1 hour sessions a week).

Here is the SOW:Yr10 Alive SOW COPY

‘The Basics’ Photography Scheme of Work and Lessons

The basics Powerpoints page

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:

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!

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.
