Travel from Paris to Senegal ppts and worksheet, using multiple tenses

Travel from Paris to Senegal ppts and worksheet, using multiple tenses

Complete series of lessons working on using multiple tenses and higher level structures such as quand and si phrases, comparatives and superlatives. I have used this with high ability year 9 as well as year 10 and 11. Covers holiday, travel, transport and free-time topics. If used together, I use them in the order listed. As well as powerpoint lessons with starters/plenaries there are activities, worksheets and reading comprehension/translation activities. Should take you through at least half a terms lessons. It has taken me hours of prep, so a real bargain!

Complete lesson practising present and future tenses for French GCSE

Complete lesson practising present and future tenses for French GCSE

This fantastic resource includes listening, reading aloud, reading and writing in the present and future tenses. The starter recaps a 'si' phrase, asking pupils to translate and then recreate the sentence in French with a 'missing vowel' text. The lesson uses the context of a diamond robbery and can be either used after my 'quand si present futur' lesson or as a standalone. An email from the accomplice is used as a listening exercise, read aloud by you or a pupil as others put the pictures in order as they hear them in the email. This is differentiated as there are pictures to print out with and without labels. The email is then used as a reading comprehension with true/false questions and translations from French to English and English to French. The increasing difficulty means that pupils can work at their own pace. There is also an extension task to tweet a message in past and future tenses. The plenary is an odd one out with the focus on grammar covered in the lesson. There is a lot of material here, so could be done over two lessons.

Complete lesson French GCSE si/quand phrases with future tense

Complete lesson French GCSE si/quand phrases with future tense

This lesson introduces si and quand phrases with the aim of getting pupils used to coping with more than one tense. The lesson can be used as part of a series as it introduces a diamond robbery story to teach a range of tenses in context, but it will work as a standalone too. I have used this with high ability year 9 and am using it to revise tenses for year 10 and 11. The starter is a gap fill to recap comparisons, then pupils translate the si and quand phrases. They then have to put the correct future tense verb in to the phrases. Those that work quickly will translate the new phrases. The plenary is an odd one out - recapping the grammar focus of the lesson. Pupils have to explain why it is the odd one out.
