AQA Style English Language Exam - Paper 1 and Paper 2 (New Syllabus)

AQA Style English Language Exam - Paper 1 and Paper 2 (New Syllabus)

A full version of AQA English papers 1 and 2. They are set out exactly like the actual exam papers (including pages of lines for student responses) to breed familiarity with the format. Could be used straight away without any other resources as a teaching aid or mock exam. The first paper uses the opening of 'Of Mice and Men' as an extract with a full set of reading questions and a question 5 writing response (describe). The second paper uses newspaper articles about the weather. Both are modern texts, however source B is about weather in the Victorian period and is from a more wordy periodical than the first, news article text. Again, it finishes with a question 5 writing response (argue).

Wordsearch - Features of an article

Wordsearch - Features of an article

Aimed at GCSE English Language and Functional Skills Level 1 and 2 English students. Students search the grid for nine key elements of articles. This is a useful opening task to start a session about article writing. It familiarises students with the key elements, and because they are focussed on searching for the terms, they begin to commit them to memory. On top of that, it is well received by students who find it challenging as well as those who just find it fun. I have used this example with post-16 students, who like to compete with each other and to help each other out.

Information text/Non Chronological report for Year 5/6 new curriculum - The Arctic Frost Dragon

Information text/Non Chronological report for Year 5/6 new curriculum - The Arctic Frost Dragon

This text has been designed to help years 5/6 meet the standards of the new curriculum by creating a model which can be used with children as part of the shared text. This can be used at the beginning of the unit as a good model for children to find the features of. Or as a modelled text upon which to base their own writing. As a follow up to this, it works best for children to design their own type of dragon and the features it has. When used before children have been extremely excited and engaged in this as a writing unit.
