Francophone Countries Unit of Work

Francophone Countries Unit of Work

A Unit of work (18 files) introducing French speaking countries with work on nationalities and prepositions. Includes: 2 x ‘Fun with Flags’ - Colouring by numbers flags to reinforce colours and introduce French speaking countries. I have allowed pupils to use ICT to find out which countries the flags belong to once they have coloured in but there is also a Powerpoint presentation in case resources or time are limited. There are completed examples for reference and the Powerpoint can also be used as a quiz or a presentation. Francophone Top Trumps – a set of 35 cards with facts about 35 francophone countries and an explanatory Powerpoint, règles du jeu, with vocabulary. Top Trumps can be played in pairs, group or as a class starter and encourages Reading, Listening and Talking. The Top Trumps can be adapted for a range of abilities. There are also checklists with the values and a Powerpoint with a suggested writing task – the information from the ‘cards’ is used to fill in the gaps. Nationalities: 2 worksheets for pupils to cross reference the countries and nationalities plus answer sheets. Powerpoint introducing the prepositions used with countries, an accompanying worksheet and answer sheet. There is also a checklist of the gender for each of the 35 countries.

Translation Race - KS3 Town

Translation Race - KS3 Town

This activity can be used for either French or Spanish at KS3. Students are given 5 sentences in English on the topic of town to translate into the target language in increasing difficulty. They must work in groups or pairs to translate them one at a time getting them checked by you and correcting as quickly as possible. Full instructions are included in the activity. This activity is fantastic for developing students writing and proof reading skills and for addressing common mistakes in an engaging fashion. Could be extended by asking students to pick a sentence and extending it as far as they can. Makes a good plenary task.

Dessinez une ville

Dessinez une ville

Creative group writing activity to encourage students to use a range of tenses and vocabulary in their writing. Once completed ask each group to present their work to the class, encourage active listening by gathering feedback from listening groups or asking them to answer questions about the other groups’ work. Key vocabulary to support students included on the power point. Ideal for year 9 up. Differentiated by type of town the group is asked to design, entertainment and tourism would be better suited to lower ability groups and eco-town would be suited to higher ability. You may also choose to adapt the fourth person’s task for lower ability classes.

KS2-3 French - reading and research activity - francophone countries

KS2-3 French - reading and research activity - francophone countries

This resource can be used either as a stand-alone activity or as part of a unit of work, to develop both reading and research skills. It includes a teaching presentation and a 12 page resource which provides comprehensive teaching notes, accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus the photocopiable pupil sheets. The activity is carefully staged to support pupils in developing independent reading, literacy and research skills. The reading and research aspects of the activity are presented separately, with the research building on the work completed in the reading. There is, in addition, scope for developing grammatical understanding of gender and prepositions, and presentation skills. The resource, therefore, could be used over a number of lessons and is suitable for use with a range of age groups.
