Urgent AQA help please!

Discussion in 'English' started by hollygolightly23, Aug 23, 2011.

  1. Hi,
    I am an NQT who will be starting to teach English in September. I'm trying to get lots of planning done, but i've met with a bit of a problem.

    My year 10 class will need to sit their Unit 3 English Language Controlled Assessment as soon as we get back. (The understanding spoken and written texts and writing creatively.) However; I do not have a log in to E-AQA (can't get into contact with anyone from my department at the minute) and as such can't see the updated task bank. I have an idea of the Spoken Language tasks; but not the other two.
    I was wondering if anyone could help me? Is there a film review? Is it still writing about annoyances?

    Thank you very much in advance!
