AQA English Language Paper 1 Question 5 model answer

AQA English Language Paper 1 Question 5 model answer

This is a model answer that I have written for AQA English Language Paper 1, Question 5. It is based on an image of polar bears wandering in front of a mountain. It models to pupils how to use many different language features: different sentence types, similes, metaphors, personification, the senses, adjectives, adverbs, pathetic fallacy and how to use these to create a narrative using the image. I used this in the lesson by asking pupils to highlight and label the language features used, thinking about the effect that they have, and also to model how to progress the narrative whilst including description.

Simplified Mark Scheme for English Language AQA (Paper 1 and 2)

Simplified Mark Scheme for English Language AQA (Paper 1 and 2)

Simplified mark schemes based on the on-screen drag and drop comments on the AQA Examiner marking software. These much reduced mark schemes help teachers to understand exactly what the examiner is look for, can streamline marking and planning and can be modified to give feedback to students by simply highlighting their areas of competence. A valuable resource.

Question Level Analysis with Personalised Targets for each child - SATS SPAG 17 Paper

Question Level Analysis with Personalised Targets for each child - SATS SPAG 17 Paper

This assessment tool takes your inputted question level analysis and automatically creates an individual personalised target sheet for each of your children which can be copied and printed in whichever format suits your school. When you enter your QLA, the spreadsheet with colour coordinate each cell green or red to show gaps in your overall class. Your child's total score will then be calculated and their standardised score will be added (taken from 2017 SATs conversion tables). You then have a target button next to each child's name which will take you to another sheet showing the questions which they did not answer correctly. These targets can be copied or printed to be shared with staff, parents and teachers to help with revision building up to this year's SATs tests. I am hoping to develop a similar document for Maths and Reading if people find this useful. Please comment back if this is something you are interested in.

Year 6 Reading Comprehension-Vocabulary and Inference resources

Year 6 Reading Comprehension-Vocabulary and Inference resources

Designed by a Year 6 teacher and Reading SATs marker, this resource contains a PowerPoint of 15 reading texts with related vocabulary and inference questions, plus a PowerPoint containing reading question stems to use when focusing on inference in lessons. It also includes answer prompts for children to use when responding to questions, both orally and in writing. All activities are aligned to the KS2 national tests-the questions are written in the style of recent tests, and the question stems are compiled from analysis of past SATs questions. Texts include a mixture of fiction, non fiction and poetry. These resources are ideal to use as regular short-burst reading practice for Year 6 during the time before KS2 SATs. They can be used as part of whole-class or small group reading lessons or guided reading sessions. All are fully editable. The resources focus on the specific content domains (the comprehension elements of the national curriculum as assessed by KS2 English reading tests) related to vocabulary and inference: 2a-give / explain the meaning of words in context 2d-make inferences from the text / explain and justify inferences with evidence from the text
