PLE – 10y1 – Home learning due Wednesday 4 June

Find the exam paper here (Foundation Tier or Higher Tier) from the Edexcel website. Depending on when your birthday is*, find Section A (Shakespeare), B (Prose) or C (Writing) and then answer the following questions:

  1. What is the focus of each question? (What do you need to write about?)
  2. How much time should you spend on this section and for each question?
  3. How much do you need to write for each question?

* If your birthday is in:

  • January to April (inclusive), you are looking at Section A (ShakespeareMacbeth)
  • May to August (incl.), you’re doing Section B (Prose – Of Mice and Men)
  • September to December (incl.), you’re doing Section C (Writing)

    i was looking at secon c and what we need to do is look at school aticals its diffrent to secon a and b because they are about books and this just wants us to write a school artical .

    i think we should spend 10 to 15 mins max because we can write akot in that tine we are given.

    a minum of 3 to 4 paragraphs because we have alot to go on so think yhat we could do that in this time it is possible.

      Thanks Keiran. You have put your answer into paragraphs, which is always the way to structure a developed answer. HOWEVER, the writing question in the exam paper (Section C) is worth HALF of the total marks available in the GCSE exam so do you really think that you should spend 10-15 mins max doing it? Think again, please.
      Also, please use correct punctuation (including capital letters – a grade G skill!) every time you write, even if it is on the blog.
