Edexcel IGCSE English Language Sample Exam Paper

Edexcel have not done a great job of providing SAMs for the new IGCSE, and there are few past papers yet. I have created lots of them. They closely follow the format of the SAMs and past papers. Many of the unseen resources are from old spec IGCSE lang papers. This one uses Danger of a Single Story from the Anthology. It also has a full marks scheme.

Worksheet on Don Letts' documentary on Skinheads

A great pre-viewing activity for ‘This is England’ is to watch Don Letts’ doc on Skinheads on YouTube. This resource promts them to watch carefully and then make notes on how Skinhead culture emerged and evolved. I set it as a homework before studying the film.

Viewing Booklet for 'We Need to Talk about Kevin'

This 23 page booklet breaks the film down into all its scenes and sections. Each page has room for notes on how the three linear narratives are interwoven, plus non-diegetic sound and they symbolic use of red. It has proved a very good way for students to keep track of this tricky film, and is a very useful revision resource once completed.
Narrative Structure of 'This is England' and how certain scenes 'mirror' others

Narrative Structure of 'This is England' and how certain scenes 'mirror' others

(0)
This is a great way for A Level Film students to keep track of the structure of This is England. It’s a largely linear film, but it is divided in half when Combo draws a spit-line on the floor, dividing the skinheads. The first page has all the scenes in two columns, reflecting this split. Students should use coloured pens to colour scnes on each side of the divide which ‘mirror’ each other, such as the two montage scenes, or the scenes when Shaun’s image is transformed, first by Woody and Lol, and later by Combo. On the second sheet, they record in detail how these paired or mirrored scenes are similar and different.

The scene where Combo bursts in to Gadget’s house with Banjo is a really pivotal one. This resource breaks it down into small chunks and asks the students to consider how Meadows uses the elements of film in each chunk. There are some refelctive, longer-answer questions at the end about the scene as a whole. It’s best given electronically so the boxes can expand to accommodate lengthy answers.
World War One Soldier Slang

World War One Soldier Slang

(0)
A handout containing 36 examples of slang commonly used by soldiers in the trenches of WW1, plus their definitions. For example, ‘Barkers’ were sausages, because the the meat in them was thought to come from dogs. ‘Dead soldiers’ were empty beer bottles. I give these sheets to students who have just studied Journey’s End and ask them to write a short play set in the trenches in which the characters use some of the slang terms. It could also be useful when writing fiction or even non-fiction pieces about the war.
