This pack of “past paper” picture questions is designed for AQA GCSE English Language 9-1. They simulate Paper 1 Question 5 where students are given a picture and are presented with two options (it’s hard, almost to call them questions!). The tasks can be for a descriptive or a narrative response. I hope that you will be able to use this pack to help you increase the story-telling powers of your learners as well as their descriptive prowess!

The resources included here are suitable for use in a number of ways:

  • Classroom delivery or progress tests – why reinvent the wheel when these questions are prepared for you?
  • Cover classes – an ideal way to give a class a task which will engage them and last an hour!
  • Online delivery – the five question sets have been saved in a format which will allow students to complete them online by typing their response below the questions (MS Word needed).

The papers will familiarise learners with the way that the questions are presented in the exam as well as giving you a little time off from preparing “past paper” questions.

All resources are editable if you want to tweak them a little. The “classroom” delivery resources are also saved in PDF format (in case that’s how you need them).

A set of grade boundaries in included which can be adapted/edited to make the papers more challenging (they use the most generous grade boundaries AQA have ever used).

These resources can be used to ensure that there are always writing tasks at hand.

All of the wonderful pictures have been ethically sourced and are available under a Creative Commons license which means you do not have to worry about copyright with them at all. Each originator is credited by use of a link to the original.
