GREETINGS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION IN FRENCH

GREETINGS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION IN FRENCH

This is a comprehensive and interactive PPT with 42 slides on greetings and personal information. The first part goes through the various ways of greetings, both formal and informal. The second part looks at how to ask and respond to a range of personal information: name, age, phone number, date of birth, where I live and come from, nationality, job, where you work. It is followed by some practice and a who's who game with pictures of famous people. It is suitable for KS3 students but I also found it very useful for KS4 students in preparation for the role-plays, as they often forget how to ask and respond properly to basic questions.

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!

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND PRACTISING VOCABULARY IN FRENCH - 120 ESSENTIAL WORDS AND PHRASES! PRIMARY FRENCH QUICK VOCABULARY QUIZZES SETS 1, 2 and 3 really do help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary ‘drilling’ activities. Children can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their FRENCH vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. The quizzes have a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling. It doesn’t matter if the featured vocabulary doesn’t correspond exactly to the language in your past, current, short or even longer-term learning plans - the quizzes are a great way of encouraging children to engage with both familiar and new language, and to feel confident using bilingual dictionaries. Use during lessons which focus specifically on these vocabulary groups, as well as as starters, plenaries or ’pick-me-ups’ at any time during the school year for maximum benefit! The sets feature words and phrases in the following vocabulary groups: - Colours - Days of the Week - Months and Seasons of the Year - Greetings - My family - Numbers 0-31 - Parts of the body - Everyday words and Conversation There are 120 words & phrases and four quizzes, each with a different challenge and skill focus: QUIZ 1: children write the ENGLISH word from a FRENCH prompt QUIZ 2: children write the FRENCH word from an ENGLISH prompt QUIZ 3: children can play in teams or individually, responding orally with the correct ENGLISH word from a written FRENCH prompt QUIZ 4: children can play in teams or individually, responding orally with the correct FRENCH word from a written ENGLISH prompt QUIZZES 3 and 4 are really useful for reading out loud and pronunciation practice too, and are also provided in pdf format so that children can use independently on tablets or similar devices - this is great if you're homeschooling too. The written quizzes are provided in 3 different formats to suit your particular preference: 12 FRENCH-ENGLISH quiz sheets; 12 ENGLISH-FRENCH quiz sheets; all 24 quiz sheets, alternately FRENCH and ENGLISH, which work really well if you can print and photocopy double-sided and prepare in a workbook format - children love to turn the page over and see how well they do ’the other way round’! This pack consists of 24 non-editable files in a zipped format. The sets are also available individually for £3. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the resource is copyright, and for single teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON DIVERTISSEMENT !

KS3-4 French - Collection of oral translation board games on topics / grammar structures

KS3-4 French - Collection of oral translation board games on topics / grammar structures

Instructions: In groups of three students (2 player + 1 referee) or five (2 teams of two players and one referee), players take turn in casting the dice. Whichever case the player/team reach based on their dice score, they will have 30 seconds to translate the relative sentence(s) into French orally. The referee will then tell the players (with the help of the answer sheet) if their translation is correct. If the translation is correct they will have another go and casting the dice and will advance to the next case where they will have to translate the next sentence and so on. However, if their translation isn’t correct, the referee will read to them the right version twice in order for the players to attempt to memorize it for the next round when they will have another go. After the opponents’ turn the player will have another chance at casting the dice; if they answer the question they originally got wrong correct. The person who is closer to the finishing line ten minutes into the game will win. I do a round in writing (students write on miniwhiteboards or iPads) then one or two orally changing partners each time. Students love it but adequate prep essential.
