PRIMARY FRENCH - 40 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY

PRIMARY FRENCH - 40 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING FRANCE! FRENCH FASCINATING FACTS TASK CARDS really do help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional, teacher-led ’information about France’ lessons. Children can develop their knowledge of FRANCE - and through guided whole-group discussion - their home/host country too, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. There is a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling, and is a great way of aligning language learning with developing literacy skills in English. This is a combined pack of SETS 1 & 2, and comprises the following: 40 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: GEOGRAPHY, HISTORY, ART & ARTISTS, FAMOUS PEOPLE, COUNTRY, LANDMARKS, LANGUAGE and FOOD. There are 4 cards per A4 sheet, making them the perfect size for young learners. The language on each of the cards ranges from fairly basic to more advanced, which challenges and enhances children’s English skills. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL ONE - there are 2 options: either 2 or 4 fact recording boxes per A4 page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes. Encourage children to be as accurate as possible with their spelling and punctuation, to pay particular attention to the spelling and accents of the FRENCH words that are included, and of course to make sure they are recording the facts in their best handwriting. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL TWO - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. However, there is a more open-ended task: responding to the question “What did you learn?”. This requires children to read their fact card, process the information, and then recreate it in their own words, describing the fact in the context of what they have learned. SETS 1 & 2 are also available separately if you prefer, each priced at £3.00. This pack comprises 10 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE!

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.
