Has anyone else opted for the Edexcel new GCSEs in English Language and Literature? If so, are you also using the EOY and baseline assessments at KS3? If so, how is it going? They look difficult to me esp the y7 baseline assessment. I know they don't need to get too many marks to achieve the appropriate step for their age but I teach at a school where kids are by and large high achieving and I don't want them to sit a paper when they're going to find it really tough and be demotivated just so we can show they're making progress. Also would anybody be willing to share their course outlines/SoW for GCSE? The models available on the Edexcel website suggest a Lit/Lang split but I'd rather take a unit by unit focus then switch focus depending on which lesson you're doing in the week.
