ENGLISH -  Autumn Term Revision Resources

In the Autumn Term, students in Year 7 and 8 are assessed using unseen SATS style papers, including a creative writing task. The revision resources below outline the skills that will be assessed, and break down the type of tasks that will be in the exam. There are also practice papers, so that students can become familiar with the layout and practice the necessary skills. There is no content related revision for these exams as they are based upon unseen resources.
Students in Year 9 will do a test in the style of a GCSE Language Paper 1, using an unseen 19th Century Gothic text, and including a creative writing task. Revision should focus upon skills rather than content, although understanding of conventions of the Gothic genre would be helpful.
