English

For the writing paper, students will be assessed on their accuracy, fluency and sophistication. We will be looking for an interesting and appropriate vocabulary and so students should think of synonyms for everyday language. For spelling, students should revise from their vocabulary books and learn spellings they have corrected in their exercise books. They will need towrite appropriately for the audience and purpose, reading the question carefully is imperative.Students should know how to use paragraphs and a range of punctuation correctly. Students will revise this in lessons.

For the reading paper, students will be assessed on their level of understanding and comprehension skills. To revise they should read as often as possible, reading out loud too is helpful, as is paraphrasing what they have read to demonstrate their understanding. Students will be expected to comment on the writer's use of language and so looking closely at examples of fiction and non-fiction and thinking of the effects created would be beneficial. Students will revise these skills in lessons.
