    Definitely use the phrase je alter ich werde, desto besse finde ich .... als ... (as I get older, I find ..... better than .....). This really impresses examiners.

    Make it interesting and exciting and original! Perhaps say that you are planning on going to the theme park but recently, on the news, a rollercoaster crashed and how you hope that doesn't happen to you. That way you include past, future and present tense in one paragraph - such is needed for an A*.

    ungefaehr, don't know, kaum, zusammen, mindestens, am meisten, nur/jetzt (depending on context), selten, eine bisschen, moeglich

    Those are the quantifiers you said (sorry if I got any wrong.)

    Okay, first say in English, what you want to do/what you are planning to do next weekend, then translate that, and if a sentence is too complicated simplify it.

    Some ideas:
    - meet up with friends

    So "Ich habe vor, mit meinen Freunden zu treffen."

    Say you want to go to the cinema with them.

    "Ich werde mit meinen Freunden ins Kino gehen."

    Say that despite being a girl, you want to play football and add why.

    "Trotz ich eine Maedchen bin, will ich Fussball spielen, denn ich habe Fussball erheiternd gefunden."

    Lie! Say you want to eat large quantities of cooked chicken!

    "Ich will grosse Menge gekochtes Haenchens."

    Say you want to repair a broken friendship "Ich will eine gebrochene Freundschaft reparieren."

    It doesn't really matter what you write, so long as you have those quantifiers then. Write it in English then people on here can help you.

    Sorry if I've given any bad examples; I just completed my German A level, but I'm no expert. Sorry if I've overcomplicated it as well. If you need any pointers about grammar, just ask!

    So I wrote my para in engilish and the things that I want it to include... if anyone is able to translate that would be great & feel free to add anything of your own to make it even better

    Next weekend I am planning to go to the beach with my family, I like spending time with my family becasue as I get older I spend less time with them, and its fun to do something different. I really wany to try out water skiing because when I was younger it was one of the things that I always wanted to do, although I've never done water sports i've heard that its very good. I also want to play beach ball because I love sport and it seems fun. On Sunday im going to the cinema with some of my old friends that I haven't seen for a very long time, we're going to see the new nemo movie because when we were younger it was our favourite movie and it will bring back some great memories. Afterwards were going bowling, bowling used to be our tradition and we'd always go in our free time, I used to be good at bowling and really enjoy it so Im looking forward to doing that again next week. Next weekend is going to be so exciting I can't wait!

    Ich habe vor, nächste Woche an den Strand zu gehen. Ich mag es meine Zeit mit meiner Familie zu verbringen weil je älter ich werde desto weniger Zeit ich fur sie haben werde. Außerdem macht es Spaß immer verschiedene Sachen zu machen. Ich möchte insbesondere sehr gerne Wasserskilaufen einmal versuchen denn als ich junger war , war es eine der Sachen die ich umbedingt machen wollte weil es viele Leute mir empfohlen haben. Ich möchte auch Strandball spielen weil ich Sport liebe und es amüsant scheint. Am Sonntag werde ich ins Kino gehen, mit manche meiner alten Freunde, die ich seit einer langen Zeit nicht gesehen habe. Wir werden das neue Nemo Film gucken, weil Nemo mein Lieblingsfilm war als ich jung war und Erinnerungen weckt. Danach werden wir bowlen gehen, weil früher Bowlen unsere Tradition war. Wir sind immer bowlen gegangen in unsere Freizeit. Ich konnte gut Bowling spielen und ich habe es immer genossen. Ich kann das Wochenende kaum noch erwarten. Nächstes Wochenende wird es spannend, ich kann es kaum abwarten!!!!
