A-A* French GCSE Speaking and Writing Handbook

(2)
A unit of work with vocabulary, grammar and activities to help students reflect on how to create A-A* work for their Speaking and Writing controlled assessments, according to AQA and Edexcel marking criteria. This resource is best used in conjunction with a dictionary (including online), and is also useful for building reading confidence. The exemplar texts could be read out as part of a dictation activity also, with pupils checking what they wrote with the exemplar texts, to help with listening skills. It is suitable for independent or cover work, as well as homework or teacher-led activities.
AQA GCSE Spanish Higher Writing Handbook

AQA GCSE Spanish Higher Writing Handbook

(0)
A comprehensive set of materials to help students prepare for the writing exam. Guidance on each question, including success criteria from the new mark scheme (drawing on my training as an AQA examiner for the new specification). Comprehensive vocabulary lists and tasks to help students revise key structures and vocabulary. I have added the vocab lists as excel lists so that they can be easily copied and pasted into various revision applications, or simply copied and pasted onto word documents. They are the ‘vocab sgeets’ referred to in the handbook. The structure of the handbook encourages spaced repeition and low stakes testing to embed this key language.

To help pupils of all abilities build and add complexity to texts. Includes activities to get pupils started with the mats, and to get them reflecting on how to improve their writing and speaking. The 2 mats(KS3 and KS4) are best printed out in colour on A3 and laminated. You could do them double sided, as the KS3 side provides good support for less able pupils at KS4.

The resource contains a crib sheet with vocabulary and grammar, as well as some higher level exemplar texts to help pupils practice reading more complex Spanish as well as adapting the texts in order to create their own higher level texts.

French GCSE Grade C Writing and Speaking Handbook
allowitmissman

French GCSE Grade C Writing and Speaking Handbook

(0)
A resource to develop the confidence and key language of pupils aiming for a grade C in French GCSE writing and speaking. A vocabulary / writing and speaking frame page followed by 3 tasks to drill and develop key language across all topics, in order to enable pupils to write and speak at grade C and gain some inspiration for Controlled Assessment. This resource was produced after studying the assessment criteria for grade C from both AQA and Edexcel. This handbook is stand alone, and has space for writing in. It can be used as cover or independent work. It is ideal as a precursor to starting Controlled Assessment preparation (ideally early on in the GCSE course) on any topic as I have tried to make to vocabulary and concepts cross-topic. Ideally pupils should have access to a dictionary.

GCSE French Writing and Speaking to Grade B Handbook

GCSE French Writing and Speaking to Grade B Handbook

(0)
This is a 12 page booklet / unit of work which will aid learners with a target grade of a B to improve confidence and build vocabulary through drilling and text level work. It is stand alone (though pupils will need access to a dictionary) and therefore ideal for homework and/or cover or independent work. It has been produced after careful study of AQA and Edexcel marking criteria and exemplar work. I have tried to keep the vocabulary as general and cross-topic as possible. I would say that it is ideal for those just starting the course, or those who have to complete Controlled Assessment outside of a topic (i.e. re-sits / those who have missed out or who have underachieved and need to catch up). I have focused only on the present and past in order to maintain accessibility, as through experience these are the two easiest tenses for learners to produce independently.
