This is a full revision scheme of work for the CIE 0500 Language GCSE. This unit works well when taught after the Language Paper 2 full scheme of work which can be found here. This scheme of work uses a range of texts and examples that are not in the initial scheme of work, so there is no repetition in terms of example questions and papers. It is an ideal unit to use in Year 11 as part of your revision module.


This is a very thorough and detailed set of lessons that revises all of the skills required to perform well in the exam. The scheme of work should last between 3-4 weeks depending on your class. The lessons follow a step-by-step structure and build up the skills needed through lots of practise and a range of different activities.


The scheme of work focuses on both reading and writing skills and highlights which skills are needed for which question. The skills: identify, evaluate, synthesise, responding to a text and writing for a purpose are all covered, and tasks are structured in way that builds up these skills through a variety of activities.


There are a range of tasks that build up and practise skills as well as activities that closely replicate the questions in the exam. A range of sources are used in this scheme of work so that pupils can practice their skills on multiple texts. Each question is deconstructed and broken down so pupils understand what they are required to do, how to plan and how to write up a successful answer. Pupils are also given lots of opportunities to self-reflect and evaluate their progress at different stages in the scheme of work.


There is also a full mock paper included in this bundle so pupils can work through an exam style paper as the unit progresses. The mark scheme is also included either for teacher marking or peer marking. An additional paper is also included so you have the option to do an unseen mock in full timed conditions.


Checklists and peer assessment sheets are also included in the bundle which are useful when conducting practice questions in the classroom or as revision. In addition, there are several skills guide sheets for the directed writing and composition questions with separate guides for narrative and descriptive writing. The lessons cover a range of activities such as pair work, group work, verbal feedback, group analysis and various types of peer assessment. Many slides include teacher notes at the bottom in order to give extra information or direction.
