song lyrics with a twist (quiz)

“N’arrête pas de croire, accroche-toi aux sentiments”…if you can do some basic French to English translation, then you will know which song those lyrics belong to! (but just to make sure, it was Journey with Don’t stop believing) Another fun, musical activity for your older or gifted and talented pupils to get their teeth stuck in. There are 20 famous song lyrics to translate, decipher and recognise. It’s always been a hit with my classes, and I hope your students will love it too. (Answers included on the second page)

Bastille Day Lesson

Bastille Day Lesson

A lesson all about Bastille Day including a range of activities. It is presented in English, so it is suitable for low-ability or younger pupils. It could also be used during form time for cultural awareness. Includes: -Presentation of facts with questions mixed in to check understanding (these could be answered on mini-whiteboards). -Listen to the Marseillaise and put the French lyrics into the right order (first verse, chorus and second verse). Then match to the English translations (flashcards are included, plus link to anthem.) -Two truths and one lie: pupils must decide which statement about France is false/myth (again mini-whiteboards would be good for this!) -Word race: use dictionaries to find translations for all the vocabulary.

Fully animated with all answers, clear directions for students and support for teacher in Notes section of slides if required. Challenge options included within activities to extend HA. The lesson begins by asking students to note down on their whiteboards all that they know about France, and all that they know about French-speaking countries. Activity 1 - Match the French name for the country to the English translation and the correct flag, drawing a star next to the country if you think it has French as an official language. Activity 2- Match the Mystery Country's national dishes to the English translations, and the images if possible. Activity 3 - Use the French clues provided to locate the Mystery Country on the map. Activity 4 - Use the map and the images to work out where the Mystery Country might be.

Lesson is reviewed using a Plenary Triangle, asking students to reflect on one thing that they knew already, three things that they've learned during the lesson, and one thing that they would like to know more about. The final section can be set as a research project for homework if wished.

A very popular lesson that always goes down a storm!

Crise d'identité (Un jeu inspiré par Hedbanz®)

Crise d'identité (Un jeu inspiré par Hedbanz®)

En posant des questions fermées (des questions qui suscitent un “oui” ou un “non”), un(e) étudiant(e) essaie de deviner le nom de la personne ou du personnage imaginaire écrit sur la fiche au tableau noir / blanc derrière lui. This activity is designed to motivate your students to ask questions in French. Because popular icons engage even reluctant learners, I've put a heavy emphasis on popular culture in this set of 130+ personality cards. But you can tailor the game to almost any topic by incorporating the political, historical or literary figures you are currently studying.

A2 AQA French Cultural Topic-Stromae

A2 AQA French Cultural Topic-Stromae

Sequence of lessons about Stromae (Belgian singer/songwriter). With my Y13 class I covered both albums (but not all songs) and by the end, students said they felt ready for both the Writing and Speaking components of the exam. (They achieved 100% A*-C with 25% A*-A in August 2015) His biography, his writing style, his approach to media, his use of technology and his potential future in the international music industry are covered. Emphasis is placed on exam requirements, questions found on the AQA website and past papers/oral exams. Many resources were inspired by resources found on the internet however I put a significant amount of time planning full lessons which would enable students to understand/fulfill AQA's expectations while incorporating games and lighter tasks. The last 8 attachments are pictures I took on Y13s last day at school: they created a giant mind map about what they had learnt. I hope you find all these resources helpful. Please don't hesitate to comment/ask.

French songs

I have used Je suis malade with Y9 and Y10 and they love it when they see the 12 year old girl singing it. It's a great way in for them using songs to learn more French. I changed the translation a bit to make it more child friendly. They loved seeing the other versions too. Cosmo was for Y11. Respire was used with Y9, Y10 and Y11. Compare the two songs. Pauvre type was used with Y9 - Y11.

This is word-level work only, but also reinforces the rhythmic cells in music. The children need to write an olympic fanfare which is to be performed by the audience at the opening ceremony using only their voices - focus on pronunciation (phonics, syllabic breakdown etc) so that this is accurate before progressing to extending further.

A song to make them smile . . . and squirm! Mon frère, le poisson

Full disclosure: I've posted this song before & was crushed to learn that not everyone could hear the music. This video version of the powerpoint should address that. Use it as a karaoke singalong or as a dictée activity. (There's a more challenging dictée on the blog.) I'm desperate to know if a) all systems are go this time and b) your students find it as funny as mine did so PLEASE leave me a quick message.
