Three differentiated writing tasks / practice papers on the same theme. First, you apply to appear in a Christmas Concert at the village hall. Later, you hear you have got a place in the concert and write an email inviting your friends to come and watch.

I wrote these tasks as an informal summative assessment end-of-term activity for a mixed level E1-E3 group of 16-19 year-olds, but they are suitable for any age group.

A Trip to the Library Entry 2 assignment provides excellent practice for City and Guilds style assignments (see note below). Layout and questions are in exactly the same style as the ‘real thing’ – complete with assessment pack and a transcript for the listening tape.
