PRIMARY FRENCH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (2)

PRIMARY FRENCH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (2)

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 resource comprises the following: 20 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: ART & ARTISTS, FAMOUS PEOPLE, HISTORY, COUNTRY and LANGUAGE. There are four 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 1 - 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 2 - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. 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. WHOLE-GROUP PRESENTATION/DISCUSSION ACTIVITY, with every fact included in the presentation resource - I’ve found this a really useful means of encouraging and stimulating classroom discussion. Children can reflect on what they may already know about FRANCE, and share it with their peers. Use the facts themselves to prompt discussion about the home/host country, and encourage children to look for lateral information, such as the existence of the Nobel Prize, what its purpose is, and how people win it. SETS 1 & 2 with 40 facts which also include ART & ARTISTS, HISTORY and FAMOUS PEOPLE are also available as a combined pack at the special price of £5.00: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/primary-french-40-facts-task-cards-recording-sheets-discussion-activity-11700399 This pack comprises 5 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!

KS1 / 2 Whole Day Taster Sessions (French)

KS1 / 2 Whole Day Taster Sessions (French)

These resources were used with a Y2 class to do a whole day of French. They are also non-linguist friendly (copy/type words into a google dictionary to hear how they're pronounced). There are 3 sessions which were interspersed with song-singing, accompanied by actions to break up the activities. Tete, epaules, genoux, pieds was a favourite! These sessions were delivered to 50 pupils over the course of a day in a mixed comprehensive school, in a socially and economically deprived area, with 50% of the class being EAL. However, it contains ample content to be easily exploited for a hungrier audience. Each session contains the 'date board' I use as a starter for all of my lessons across KS3 and 4. It's so simple but focuses pupils immediately. Session 1(47 slides) has a cultural focus and will show pupils how many landmarks around the world are within easy reach of the UK. The resource includes pictures and maps as well as driving / flying time from the U.K. to these places. There is scope for an easy extension activity here - pupils couldresearch the French landmarks and present their findings to the rest of the class for example. Session 2 (6 slides) brings French language in, without it being too intense and gives pupils the opportunity to practise basic phrases and French handwriting. Session 3 (11 slides) brings in lots of language, focusing on the basics with support whilst also allowing pupils to push themselves with the extension documents. For session 3, once the starter activity had been completed, I divided the 50 pupils across 8 groups, on 8 tables and we did a carousel activity to progress through the difference phrases. I assigned table leaders to explain their sentence to their group and how the sheet could be used to support them to write sentences about themselves. Each sheet contains extension phrases. Once pupils had grasped how to use the sheets (around 4 tables in for some of them!), they felt confident to manipulate the sentences for themselves and the whole activity became much quicker. I planned to bring the focus back to the French style handwriting if it were the case that pupils finished the activity in order to produce display work. They took a long time to make but went down a treat so it was time well spent. Enjoy!

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES - 46 POSTERS / FLASHCARDS

FRENCH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES - 46 POSTERS / FLASHCARDS

PERFECT FOR CREATING AN INSTANT INTRODUCTION TO THE FRENCH-SPEAKING WORLD AND GREAT FOR READING, SPEAKING AND PRONUNCIATION PROMPTS TOO! Create an instant introduction to LES PAYS FRANCOPHONES and brighten up your classroom with this set of posters showing a range of world countries and territories where FRENCH is an official language. Each poster shows the country and capital city in FRENCH, and its national flag, and together they give your classroom a great multicultural look and feel. At the same time, they promote FRENCH as a living language, spoken widely across the world, and featuring in the everyday life of your learning environment. I’ve included countries or regions where a significant number of the population speak FRENCH as either their first or second language, such as Viet Nam. I’ve also included two posters for some countries, such as FRANCE, officially known as the RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE - you can choose either the more frequently-used LA FRANCE or the RÉPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE to display. There may be a number of countries and capital cities that students do not know, or are not aware of, so the posters also help them develop their general awareness, knowledge and understanding of world geography. The posters look great displayed horizontally across a particular learning area alphabetically works well, though non-alphabetically is perfect for a country quest activity! The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the posters are copyright, and for single teacher/purchaser-use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE !
