Lent Holiday Work

Pupils have been issued with a 'care package' folder which contains plenty of materials for them to use as part of their revision process over the next three weeks. The purple folder contains the following:

  • A set of Paper 1 Language tasks, including two example scripts by candidates / examiner comments
  • A set of Paper 2 Language tasks, including two example scripts by candidates / examiner comments
  • Two poetry question papers
  • a 'Never Let Me Go' paper
  • a 'Jekyll & Hyde' paper

Pupils are not expected to write responses to all of these (although they are welcome to do so) - instead they should focus on planning under timed conditions.

In addition we have produced two podcasts, analysing the comments provided by the exam board (the Examiner's Reports) - these should be listened to carefully and notes taken.

The Paper 1 podcast can be found here and Paper 2 here.

 Finally, pupils should review three of their set texts ('Never Let Me Go', 'Jekyll & Hyde' and the poetry anthology) - rereading the texts and all marginal/class notes taken. They should start to memorise the quotations and think about the key moments that pertain to each of the texts.
