'Sport' Blockbuster Game for use in French / German / Spanish / EAL / Other Languages

'Sport' Blockbuster Game for use in French / German / Spanish / EAL / Other Languages

Blockbusters Game - works in same way as old TV show of the same name. Pupils work in teams giving sentences in French (or other language) about chosen sport. Can be differentiated so that some classes may just be giving the name of the sport in the foreign langauge, while other might have to use the words in a sentence / given tense / give an opinion. Split class in blue and white team with one team having to get a column of their colour hexagons fron top to bottom, the other team has to get a row from one side to the other. The team going across gets to go first. If the team get their sentence correct they put a hexagon of their colour on that sport symbol. Then it is the turn of the next team. Tactics come into play (e.g. blocking the other team so they have to go around the opposing team's hexagons)

Japanese GCSE Hiragana and Katakana

Japanese GCSE Hiragana and Katakana

Links to colour PDF files for children that teach hiragana and katakana. Although there are plenty of resources for teaching the basic kana, I found that these amused the pupils most due to the pictures and also the idea of 'learning to write from scratch'.
