Travel from Paris to Senegal ppts and worksheet, using multiple tenses

Travel from Paris to Senegal ppts and worksheet, using multiple tenses

Complete series of lessons working on using multiple tenses and higher level structures such as quand and si phrases, comparatives and superlatives. I have used this with high ability year 9 as well as year 10 and 11. Covers holiday, travel, transport and free-time topics. If used together, I use them in the order listed. As well as powerpoint lessons with starters/plenaries there are activities, worksheets and reading comprehension/translation activities. Should take you through at least half a terms lessons. It has taken me hours of prep, so a real bargain!

Present, past, future conditional tenses trip advisor lesson

Present, past, future conditional tenses trip advisor lesson

This lesson concludes a series of lessons about a diamond robbery but can be used as a standalone lesson. The starter is a translation that recaps the story so far. Pretend Trip advisor reviews are used with an activity to work out what hotel has which facilities. A scaffolded speaking activity gets the pupils asking each other what activities they would like to do. There is also a tic-tac-toe activity with pictures of the activities - I usually divide the class in two for them to play against each other to say what they would like to do using the pictures only. You could differentiate by giving the lower ability the phrases. The pupils then read an email which has a reading comprehension worksheet and then work out where the accomplice is staying and where he is going to go using the trip advisor reviews and the passé composé and future tenses. There is a lot of material in this lesson. There is more than enough for high ability pupils to get through in one lesson but you may want to make it two lessons.

Diamond robber lesson focusing on conditional tense

Diamond robber lesson focusing on conditional tense

This lesson focuses on the conditional tense but includes the present, past (passé composé and imparfait) and future tenses too. Suitable for able year 9 upwards/ GCSE this is part of a series using the story of a diamond robbery to practise using different tenses together. The lesson can be used as part of the series (a whole term's worth!) or on its own. There is a starter, followed by an email from the very demanding girlfriend of the diamond robber asking for all the things she would like in her hotel. Pupils start by picking out simple details from the email, followed by a reading comprehension which is on the powerpoint or as a printable pdf with the email. This increases in difficulty so that pupils can work at their own pace. There is an extension task, spotting other tenses in the email and an odd one out plenary.

Complete lesson practising present and future tenses for French GCSE

Complete lesson practising present and future tenses for French GCSE

This fantastic resource includes listening, reading aloud, reading and writing in the present and future tenses. The starter recaps a 'si' phrase, asking pupils to translate and then recreate the sentence in French with a 'missing vowel' text. The lesson uses the context of a diamond robbery and can be either used after my 'quand si present futur' lesson or as a standalone. An email from the accomplice is used as a listening exercise, read aloud by you or a pupil as others put the pictures in order as they hear them in the email. This is differentiated as there are pictures to print out with and without labels. The email is then used as a reading comprehension with true/false questions and translations from French to English and English to French. The increasing difficulty means that pupils can work at their own pace. There is also an extension task to tweet a message in past and future tenses. The plenary is an odd one out with the focus on grammar covered in the lesson. There is a lot of material here, so could be done over two lessons.

Les vacances du petit Nicolas- Sempé- Reading comprehensions Higher

Les vacances du petit Nicolas- Sempé- Reading comprehensions Higher

4 reading comprehensions exercises from "Les vacances du Petit Nicolas." Perfect for teaching the topic of holidays. The short stories reinforce all vocabulary seen (places, activities, opinions, suitcase items, use of different tenses). I have selected extracts and added a series of questions. As this is an authentic text, I would aim these activities for a higher group (from year 9 to year 11). Great to include a bit of French culture and literacy in your lessons. I have added a link to the trailer of the film (adapted from the short stories). Could be a good way of introducing the topic or as a way to engage pupils before the reading comprehension. **Timers and answers are included. **
