Key Stage 3 English Language Exam Prep

Key Stage 3 English Language Exam Prep

A lesson, which could stretch over two, 1 hour, periods this lesson prepares key stage 3 for a practice language exam. This lesson is based on the sample AQA English Language Key Stage 3 paper which avaliable on their site, I cannot put this as an attachment due to copyright laws BUT this is very easy to find on the AQA site. The lesson walks the pupils, step by step, through question 1,2,4, and 5 by using model examples and top tips to answer each questions - there is also time for the pupils to have a go at this question too. Question 3 is omitted from this ppt as we don’t include it on our own examination for key stage 3, but it can be easily added if required. Many thanks for looking :)

Improving Writing

In this resource, students must read an example of a ‘poor’ piece of writing. Using the checklist in the bottom left hand corner, they write things that must be done to improve it. They can then pass this sheet onto another student who will look at what is needed to improve and then try to improve it in the space provided! There are 10 different pieces of writing in total in this pack meaning most students will have a different text to read.
