Short translation tasks with mark scheme

Short translation tasks with mark scheme

Practice translation activities in the style of the new GCSE. Worksheet includes a short version of the AQA mark scheme. I go through the correct translation on the board then get pupils to make corrections and peer assess before I mark their work. Using these every 2-3 weeks as a 10-15 minute activity, to assess pupils regularly and keep exam skills ticking over, rather than doing a massive exam at the end of each topic.
