Escape Room activity - French Revolution

Escape Room activity - French Revolution

This was a very low tech escape room activity. I printed off slides 1 (key words), slides 4-7 for students (2 slides per page!). The locations are on the final slide. I hid the first code cracker under a beret on an unused desk, the next clue under a guillotine by our fire exit and the third (pair of codes) under a toy crown on my classroom shelves. As I didn’t have a suitable box I could padlock, I used a cardboard wallet, holepunched it and put the padlocks through the holes on there. I used one padlock with a 3 digit code (187 - slide 8 for the questions) and a key padlock. On the wallet, I wrote in French that they had to prove to me they had complete all activities. I gave prizes to the students to open the padlock first. I did this with an able Y10 group (small class) and it took virtually a double lesson (100 minutes). Please message me if you have any questions.

Make your own French bleuet

Make your own French bleuet

An idea I had on how to create the French version of the Poppy - le bleuet - for Remembrance Day! I've tried to include step by step instructions - you will need: blue tissue paper, straws (or something similar), scissors and sellotape. I did adapt use and adapt another presentation on WW1 that I found on here showing key words but I can't remember the author! Hope you enjoy the activity and can make a field of bleuets with your class.

Les animaux - le coq: symbol

Les animaux - le coq: symbol

This is a great way to introduce a bit of the French culture (as well as the numeracy component) when teaching about animals / animal sounds. You could ask students to read the text then to fill in the blank/write their own description on the timeline sheet. This is just an activity I have assembled but the way you want to teach it is up to you. I personally like to introduce the animal sounds then focus on the use of "cocorico" and then its origin.

There is a timetable for the day in the info. pack you would only need change the times to suit your school.

PRIMARY FRENCH FACTS ACTIVITIES 1

PRIMARY FRENCH FACTS ACTIVITIES 1

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING FRANCE - 20 FASCINATING FACTS ABOUT ALL THINGS FRENCH - WITH PRESENTATION / DISCUSSION ACTIVITY & DIFFERENTIATED QUESTION CARDS AND WRITING ACTIVITIES FRENCH FASCINATING FACTS ACTIVITIES 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 THE FRANCOPHONE WORLD - 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. The resource comprises the following six files: 20 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: geography, country, landmarks, language and food. There are four cards per A4 sheet. 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 ONE - there are two options: either two or four 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 TWO - there are also two options: two or four 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. Encourage children to look for lateral information, such as the existence of other countries where FRENCH is spoken, and to think about the continent where those countries are located. 24 QUESTION CARDS AND ANSWER RECORDING SHEET — the questions have a differentiated range of challenge. The answer recording sheet prompts children to write their answer. SETS 1 & 2 are available together at the special price of £5.00: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/primary-french-facts-activities-1-and-2-11700399 This pack comprises 6 non-editable files in a zipped format.

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.
