year 8 assessed drawings

Some fantastic grid drawings from year 8 so far this term. With a focus on Pop Art as our theme, we have selected and enlarged part of a packet and to ensure correct proportions we used the grid method.

Pupils also considered their progress mid way through using the success criteria meaning they knew exactly how to improve.

These will be developed now using print, paint and collage as we work towards final pieces

Well done!

You will NOT be allowed to access the computers during the exam as you cannot have access to internet so any images you need to print will need to be done BEFORE the exam.

  • ·        You may not communicate with each other during the 10 hours

HANDING WORK IN:

On the 2nd of your exam days, you must hand in the WHOLE exam project (any work since January) at 3pm. If you do not bring the project with you to the exam on the second exam day, we cannot accept it late and therefore it will not be marked

y8 outstanding achievements

Certificates will be making their way to the following year 8 pupils amongst others, who have really impressed me with their effort and persistence in creating their portrait final pieces.None of these pupils found it 'easy', but they worked hard and eventually produced some fantastic work.

A huge well done to all pupils, some of whom have even been staying at breaks to finalise everything!
