Building on work we have done in both KS2 and KS3 students have been set a contextual referencing task. I wanted to continue with the student led learning within my classroom so this took a lot of preparation to scaffold this to produce outcomes that were high quality, creative, Reflective and that included our 5 C's - Collaboration, critical thinking, curiosity, creativity and communication. Students started off with a task to identify their own success criteria through group critique sessions of exemplar work. They then used these as a marker to base quality and presentation. They also understood the amount of depth that was needed when researching their artist.
Following this we then had a group task where each member was given a job and this was supported by the elected team leader. I was really impressed with how well students did this task and the standard of work was really high.
Pupils should be taught to develop their creativity and ideas, and increase proficiency in their execution. They should develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgements that can inform their own work.
