GCSE French 2014

GCSE French
Controlled Assessment Information

In the week preceding the half term holidays (10th-14th Feb), both set 1 GCSE French classes in Year 11 (Mrs Briden & Mrs Baker) will receive their written Controlled Assessment tasks on the topic of ‘School’.  Preparation should take place during the half-term holiday, in order to complete the CA in the first week back (24th-28th Feb).  In order to help with their planning, students should refer to work in their exercise books and textbooks, as well as their individual copies of the following 3 resources produced by the department: Raising A to A*, Stylistic vocab and Complex sentences, Improving Verbs.

The written component is worth 30% of the final overall grade, therefore preparation at this stage is critical.
