As it is Ed Balls day today (check twitter if unsure), I've decided to give you a little question 2 treat. In fact this article is also very good for Thoughts and Feelings - a gift that keeps giving.
Remember the two key areas you need to focus on to get the top bands for both these questions:
Q2 - You need to make consistent links to the text. An examiner has recommended that you draw lines between the headline, subheading and image to the key points it references in the text during the planning stage. If you have an Ipad you can do this with this electronic version but make sure you do something to remind yourself to make links to the text. Make sure you are analysing in-depth as well.
Q3 - The examiner wants to see top level candidates tracking the changes in feelings of the writer so make sure you do this. Check that your four key points show some sort of change in the thoughts and feelings of the writer.
So if you want to practise Q2 or Q3 the link is above. Just mark clearly the question you are attempting in the comment.
Q2: Explain how the headline, sub-heading and picture are effective and how they link to the text? (8 Marks) - 12 Mins
Q3: Explain some of the thoughts and feelings of Sophie Heawood on getting her child to sleep. (8 Marks) 12 Mins
