Year 11 exam group brings smile to Shippo's face

Take my word for it, the start of the GCSE exam project is always the slowest. For the Art teachers it is always the most frustrating - seeing students ponder over which question to do and how to get started on a new idea.
Wowza - no wonder Miss Shipley is best pleased because her Year 11 group have jumped in at the deep end, got themselves sorted out and have made an absolutely fantastic flying start to their exam project. After just one lesson resources are already in place, photographs have been taken and objects have been brought in. It is no wonder morale is high as we go in to this 7 week preparatory period leading up to the final 'exam'.
The blog will monitor their progress over the next few weeks - watch this space.Keep smiling Miss Shipley.
