Primary French Day with sport, cookery, art and Paris architecture, KS1 KS2

Primary French Day with sport, cookery, art and Paris architecture, KS1 KS2

If you have been tasked to plan a French Day in school but don't know where to start then this is for you. There are 4 sessions which will last at least an hour each. The information pack tells you how to deliver each session. There's a petanque session (you will need at least 4 petanque sets but I've found these cheap at 'The Works' bookshop, a cookery session (madeleines and salade nicoise, madeleine trays available for just £2 on amazon), and art session all about Monet and Toulouse Lautrec, with a different art activity for classes from Reception to Y6 to do and a French session which will could be led by the teacher organising the day but doesn't have to be. There's an evaluation sheet for children to give you feedback at the end and a letter to parents that you can adapt as you see fit. There is a timetable for the day in the info. pack you would only need change the times to suit your school. I have spent about 3 days pulling these resources together and will be using them in three of the schools where I am employed permanently as a French teacher. This literally is all you will need.

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

12 French Quizzes for Different Levels

12 French Quizzes for Different Levels

This is a collection of 14 quizzes on France and French language for KS 3-5 students, depending on the resource. Most of them are in French but a few for KS3 are in English. The length varies between 10 and 30mn . Most of theses quizzes are interactive PPT so they can be displayed on whiteboard and are fully editable. The title indicates the targeted audience. I use these quizzes either at the end of term or for starters/plenaries with great effect. Students really enjoy them as it's covering a range of cultural topics about France ( medias, geography, history, famous people) and it's a refreshing change from the linguistic side of their French studies. Enjoy!

French KS3 Cover Lesson Design your own Castle / Palace

French KS3 Cover Lesson Design your own Castle / Palace

This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of French well. Most effective for students with prior knowledge of connectives and opinions, but these are supplied in ppt. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter activity. Activity 1: team work to look up words they can use to design / describe a castle (displayed in French on ppt) in dictionaries, again, differentiated. These words include: swimming pool, knights, dragons etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: differentiated translation task using castle vocabulary. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self assessment. Main activity 3 'apply' task: Differentiated. Students design their own castle or palace. Key words and higher challenges included. Pyramid review to finish.
