AQA 8700/1 English Language - Christmas Creative Writing & Mock

This session goes through Paper 1 - Question 5, descriptive and narrative writing, as a practice session. It starts off comparing the mark scheme to an example with a task, following a set of animated annotations which are to be discussed as a group.

Then move onto approaching an image for description and this includes an example, too. There is a list of figurative features which can be amended, as well as a task on making epic connections in creative writing.

Following this, there is a small focus on titles and sentence starters.

Finally, there is a writing challenge which uses a starting sentence and Christmas icons to stimulate and focus writing.

As an added bonus: there is also a Christmas Full Paper 1 mock paper included.

I wrote the example text myself and all top quality images are from - where all images are free for use, even for commercial purposes.
