Mrs Taylor’s Y11 Easter challenge – Question 5 Language Papers 1&2

Hello,

well done for your heroic efforts preparing for the Lit mock on Thursday. Really impressed by your resilience at the end of a tiring term. Well done all! I asked you to revise Question 5 for both papers over Easter – these two questions are worth half the marks for your GCSE English Language and so it makes sense to focus on these to gain extra marks. Make sure when you do this work, you address your personalised next steps plus the slides/exemplars that I put on the shared area.

For some of you, I recommended that you redraft your mock answer first and apply the feedback; this would probably be a wise thing for everyone to do. Then select at least one from the following to attempt for each Paper ( or from the Paper 2 Q5 tasks on the slides I put on the shared area)

Paper 1

Q5

  1. Write a description based on this image of Steve Backshall (as you know one of my favourite TV personalities and adventurers – there is still time for you to procure a signed photo to give me as your leaving present, hint hint…)

2.

3.

4. Write the opening part of a story about an important meeting

5. Write a story in which  a secret plays an important part.

6. Write a story in which fear plays a significant part.

Paper 2

  1. “Teenagers aren’t interested in politics”  Write a letter to your local MP about something that you believe to be wrong. Explain your views and persuade him or her to take action.
  2. “People waste their evenings mindlessly watching TV and YouTube when they could be doing so much more with their free time. ” Write an article for a broadsheet newspaper in which you explain your point of view on this subject.
  3. “Family is so last season. Friends are the game changers for young people today.” Write a blog post in which you give your point of view on this subject.
