KS3-4 French - Collection of oral translation board games on topics / grammar structures

KS3-4 French - Collection of oral translation board games on topics / grammar structures

Instructions: In groups of three students (2 player + 1 referee) or five (2 teams of two players and one referee), players take turn in casting the dice. Whichever case the player/team reach based on their dice score, they will have 30 seconds to translate the relative sentence(s) into French orally. The referee will then tell the players (with the help of the answer sheet) if their translation is correct. If the translation is correct they will have another go and casting the dice and will advance to the next case where they will have to translate the next sentence and so on. However, if their translation isn’t correct, the referee will read to them the right version twice in order for the players to attempt to memorize it for the next round when they will have another go. After the opponents’ turn the player will have another chance at casting the dice; if they answer the question they originally got wrong correct. The person who is closer to the finishing line ten minutes into the game will win. I do a round in writing (students write on miniwhiteboards or iPads) then one or two orally changing partners each time. Students love it but adequate prep essential.

10 Phrases Sur Moi! Je me présente! Activité pour la rentrée

10 Phrases Sur Moi! Je me présente! Activité pour la rentrée

This fun French activity helps primary school pupils introduce themselves. It is ideal as a back-to-school or end-of-year activity but it can be used at any time of the year. Pupils write 10 sentences about themselves - one sentence per finger onto the outline of a pair of hands. They then decorate. The completed art activity can then be used as a springboard to oral presentations. This is a lovely confidence-building activity. Finding ten things to say about themselves may seem like a daunting task but by using the included fill-in-the-blanks sentences, pupils are often surprised with how much French they know. This resource includes: - 25 fill-in-the-blanks French sentences & the English translation - the same 25 sentences with options to fill in the sentences & the English translation - 3 different pairs of hands outlines with fill-in-the-blanks sentences - a blank pair of hands outline - 3 sample completed pairs of hands outlines - Teacher Page - How to use this product

French Listening Activity

French Listening Activity

This is a homework that I set my class last year; however it can be used as a starter, plenary or just as something to pass time. The sound clip is attached to the pp but as sometimes technology does let you down, I have attached the original audio clip to this also. Please review and keep me updated with ideas for resources that help you.
