Year 11: Easter Holiday Revision


Over the Easter Holidays I would like you to do three things:

1. Focus on the Unseen Poetry section of the English Literature exam. Complete all the revision tasks in the booklet you have been given.

2. Design your own English Language exam. Have a look at this one: English Language exam

and use it as a template for creating your own. You will find it helpful to read this document on the The Six Different Types of Questions in the English Language Unit 1 GCSE exam

You should also write your own mark scheme.

3. Complete any of the revision tasks on this blog that are still outstanding:

What is/are your Learning Style/s?
