GCSE Art Exam and Mock Exam Course Structure

I have updated and refreshed my GCSE Art Exam/Mock Exam course structure sheets. They now reflect the 1-9 grades, include the revised wording to match the AQA Specification and go up to 24 marks instead of 20.

As before the jpegs and Powerpoint that includes the tick boxes can be downloaded below but if you want to have the editable Photoshop (or the ‘Graphics’ files – a mac based app that was used to create the original files) files then please drop me a message in the comments section.

Exam Time Planning for GCSE Art and Photography students

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).

Magazine rack filing system for SOW

I have wanted a better system for keeping my scheme of work files organized for a while, then while I was at Ikea this summer I saw this magazine rack that I thought could help. It is just the right size for holding clip files and has 4 sections (2 for lower school art and DT and the 2 for upper school art and DT). Plus I have managed to find a space right next to my desk so they are at arms reach for writing my lesson plans for the week.

Visual Planning

Visual schemes of work imageTeaching a creative and visual subject I wanted to try and make my planning much more visual. I have put together a folder for each year which contains the schemes of learning/ work for the entire school year.

Inside the folder is the standard written version which contains the National Curriculum links and a breakdown of the lessons etc. But after this I have created pages which have each task/ lesson at the top and then below a set of columns where I can print out and stick down relevant images I find on the internet and most importantly all my pins from my Pinterest boards.

I am also planning to add at the back of the folder images of pupil’s work as a record of the work actually produced.
