There is also a link to a full practice paper when you feel confident enough to have a go.  

Section B of this paper focuses on your descriptive and narrative writing skills. Again. We have attached links to support you, including some atmospheric videos that you can play in the background and use to practice your narrative and descriptive writing skills.  

Alongside this we would like you to revisit Romeo and Juliet and A Christmas Carol. We have attached video links to lessons to support your revision. If you feel that you require additional support, then please don’t hesitate to use the additional links for Oak Academy. We have provided you with an online version of the complete texts and encourage you to find a quiet spot and re-read A Christmas Carol in particular. There is also a link for you to watch Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
