Market experience- Au Marche

Market experience- Au Marche

This lesson/activity can be approached from various angles. I used it as an introduction to phrasing questions as we had learnt the basic- ‘Puis-je avoir….?’ with classroom equipment. (The latter question was taught using sign language and is very effective with lower ability pupils). Pupils loved asking for food items. You can add a ‘bureau d’echange’ and pretend to swap for euros. This can lead onto a food topic or travelling topic. The activity of a market will need to be set up prior to the lesson and class rules be established. Create incentives which will reward pupils. One year, it was decoding a clue as they visited each shop. Everyone knows their own cohort. I have included some publisher documents which can be amended to create market stall signs. This can be also linked with D & T department. Pupils were looking at healthy eating and mediterranean produces. They decided to make a salad nicoise. I created a basic cook sheet with the D & T teacher and we arranged the stalls to have the correct items to make this salad. So not to waste tuna we provided bags of tuna!

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. **
