AQA Languages GCSE Speaking Easy Marking and Feedback Sheet

(0)
This sheet is designed to enable ‘live’ marking during speaking mock exams and also to enable quick but detailed feedback to students. It can also be used for a ‘walking, talking mock’. I have made the wording of the mark scheme clearer and more concise to render it clearer for students. Grade boundaries are included so that the sheet is a complete mark scheme. The grade boundaries are for the Spanish 2018 exam. The French are as follows: Foundation 38 /5 34/4 25/3 16/2 7/1 Higher: 53/9 48/8 44/7 38/6 32/5 27/4 (22/3 - no longer used - no grade 3 at Higher)

An exemplar C grade piece designed after careful study of AQA GCSE marking criteria, with tasks designed to ensure full engagement with the text, and also to enable students to use the texts effectively as a model/to adapt. 207 words long. A good comprehension and Controlled Assessment / writing exam preparation activity for C grade or borderline C/D grade pupils. Good for independent or cover work. Double sided sheet with text followed by activities. Can also be used as a springboard for discussion on what constitutes a C grade text, and how to enhance it to improve the grade.
Spanish GCSE Speaking and Writing Revision Handbook

Spanish GCSE Speaking and Writing Revision Handbook

(0)
This is a resource designed to be used independently, for revision, or in a class setting. It is ideal for extended cover or to set a revision / exam preparation resource. Though I have labelled it AQA, it is not specific to an exam board. However, I have included specific references to AQA and Edexcel (i.e. their themes and topics) and so can be edited to be exam board specific. It starts at target grade 1 and build to target grade 7 and so can be edited or kept the way I have designed it for crossover / boderline students or students who are currently at foundation level but are capable of higher - I have designed it for my own students in this situation. This makes it suitable for a mixed ability class also.

A lengthy worksheet designed to enable British students to reflect on the success criteria for GCSE Spanish at A* - how to gain the highest possible marks in the exam they take aged 16. 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. This worksheet would be suitable for those seeking to enhance their spoken and written Spanish.

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.

Speaking Controlled Assessment Peer Assessment and Next Steps Sheet

(0)
A sheet with AQA GCSE marking criteria to enable peer assessment and reflection on next steps for improvement in Speaking Controlled Assesssment preparation. Is for Spanish speaking, but with minor adjustments can be for writing and any language. However, I will adjust for writing Controlled Assessment for those less confident or new to the mark scheme. Can be used for peer assessment, but also to aid self-assessment, or for FLAs/TAs as guidance. To be used in conjunction with Higher Literacy Mat for Spanish: this can be found in the free uploads section under my username.

Exemplar A grade text on the topic of Where I Live, followed by a series of activities to enable students to write their own Controlled Assessment to a Grade A. Also good for reading comprehension practice. Suitable for independent work, cover and resits. Several hours worth of preparatory work (scaffolding, vocabulary-building, focus on verbs and tenses) and advice on how to prepare for CA effectively.

A resource for higher ability pupils to increase cultural and geographical knowledge at the same time as getting them talking in high-end French. There is an emphasis on pair-work, brainstorming and cultural acquisition. At least one lesson's worth, possibly more. Notes to help you get the best from the resource (see notes section below slides).
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.
