This pack provides a comprehensive overview of Language Paper 2. It includes: An exam paper the students can work on throughout Sample answers for each long answer question (this includes a grade 4-5/6-7/8-9 answer for each) An exam question on a different paper that students can then do as an assessment or homework Fully annotated exam questions so that student know what the question is asking them to do. How I have used this resource: I print the sample answers on different coloured paper and get students to rank them. They must then mark them as an examiner and justify why they have ranked them in this order. They then use the best answer to create their own sentence stems before they then write their own answer and peer assess. This has really improved the quality of their writing and students feel more confident on how to approach each question.
