Translation Race - KS3 Town

Translation Race - KS3 Town

This activity can be used for either French or Spanish at KS3. Students are given 5 sentences in English on the topic of town to translate into the target language in increasing difficulty. They must work in groups or pairs to translate them one at a time getting them checked by you and correcting as quickly as possible. Full instructions are included in the activity. This activity is fantastic for developing students writing and proof reading skills and for addressing common mistakes in an engaging fashion. Could be extended by asking students to pick a sentence and extending it as far as they can. Makes a good plenary task.

Dessinez une ville

Dessinez une ville

Creative group writing activity to encourage students to use a range of tenses and vocabulary in their writing. Once completed ask each group to present their work to the class, encourage active listening by gathering feedback from listening groups or asking them to answer questions about the other groups’ work. Key vocabulary to support students included on the power point. Ideal for year 9 up. Differentiated by type of town the group is asked to design, entertainment and tourism would be better suited to lower ability groups and eco-town would be suited to higher ability. You may also choose to adapt the fourth person’s task for lower ability classes.
