AQA English Language Paper 2 Question 5

This PowerPoint contains sixteen one-hour lessons (185 slides) that focus on AQA’s GCSE English Language Paper Two, Question Five (nonfiction writing). All tasks are written according to 9-1 GCSE numerical grades and are designed for the New Specification AQA English Language (8700) Paper Two Section B.

There are a wide range of tasks (lessons listed below) that focus on building the skills needed for AO5 and AO6 - including practice questions, original model responses, extension tasks and text extracts. The PowerPoint includes a baseline assessment and an end of unit assessment that are both modelled on the AQA exam; additionally, there are four nonfiction writing homework tasks (one for each week). There are also four extra exam-based questions that could be used as cover work or as extra questions for revision, intervention, homework etc. In total, there are 22 exam-style question on the scheme on a range of topics that were written with student engagement in mind.
