This one-page worksheet provides examples and exercises to help students understand the importance of AO4 in extended answer questions.

This 4-page quiz about The Hunt from the original Planet of the Apes can be used as a teaching method or assessment. It has been created with Eduqas AoS 3 objectives in mind, covering important questions such as the composer's use of the stimulus, as well as a wide range of vocabulary covering all elements of music. This quiz was designed in conjunction with the Edexcel Anthology of Music first published in 2000 (the A-level score) and asks questions about specific bar numbers, but most questions can be answered without the score by simply listening to the hyperlinked excerpts and a bit of extra preparation. I have not included a copy of the score for copyright reasons. Either way, you will not regret buying this!
