    I did the horrifying death trap question 2. I was toying over doing question four, but eventually decided that i'd have a go at that one...

    Regretted it half way through though... :rolleyes:

    I did question 2!

    And.. I liked it. It wasn't that bad, I just ran out of time and did a 5 minute descriptive (hardly any analysis) commentary.

    What did you do for the activity bit?

    I put "Class re-enactment" where the class act out the trials, etc. I suggested a trip to Pendle Hill and then something about setting the kids a task to create their own posters.

    Question 3 FTW!

    That was so good, we basically planned for a Radio 4 script days ago on here.

    wow last comment before and first after! and i did make it on the petrol i had! woo, that went ok except i think i wrote far too much, what question did people do? garantee it was number 4 for most people lol x do they stop marking after 1000 words? cos i think i may have tripled that.
    lol nice one mate, but seriously get some petrol
    i pretty much tripled the word count too.. hopefully thats not a problem?

    I really wanted a radio 4 task for Pendle Witches - I'm soooo happy! Therefore, unsurprisingly I did question 1 - the dramatised documentary about the build up to and the trails of the witches.

    Hope I did OK - thought it went really well in the exam but I always question myself afterwards! Nothing I can do about it now though. Fingers crossed!

    I don't think they mark you down specifically due to that.
    The word count is only a guide line, 800 isn't far off and if it's good quality then you shouldn't have any problem..

    I did question 4. It's so hard to know how it went though! I was writing until the very end! I think I might have gone over the word count... I'm so glad that one came up. I couldn't have done the witches ones, which is good because I didn't prepare those sources!

    Did question 4, apparently my written form is very mature for my age so felt magazine article for parents was the best one for me. Cheers to the person who posted the guidelines for the commentary and also that CRAP'EM thing, really helped a lot and may have helped me gain the grades I need. CCC. Hope everyone did well as this thread became my home for the weekend!

    Two Radio 4 questions - I couldn't have asked for anymore! That said, I did question 4:p: I thought question 3 was a bit of a trap.

    I don't think I'll have gotten an A, nor a B for that paper actually, but I'd be over the moon with a C! Would be a nice surprise on results day instead of the D I got in January

    Oh you star! I'm so glad I wasn't the only one

    That activity sounds ace, I did one called "Which Witch is Which", which was to do with the witch families, and another called "Witch is the way to Pendle Hill" and I did a poster task too at the end :p:

    I had a similar problem with my commentary, I found it was very difficult to get all of the necessary info into the guide, and I ended up glossing over very important information...

    I just hope a got enough in

    I did question 4 too
    I did four sections 'what is dyslexia?' 'how do I know if my child has dyslexia'? 'how can i help my child at home?' and 'choosing the right school'
    And I did exactly 200 words for the commentary! lol
