French Teaching Resources: Euro 2016 Football Lesson!

French Teaching Resources: Euro 2016 Football Lesson!

I have planned this lesson not only to teach vocabulary and facts about football, France and Euro 2016, but also to help the students to respond creatively to their learning and hopefully share their passion for football! The PowerPoint uses matching cards, colourful pictures and animations and YouTube extracts set to music to inspire the students. It is planned to use with students from Years 6-9 (the final task is very open-ended). Slide 2 states the objective: Objectif: To learn about Le Football & Euro 2016 and to respond creatively to your learning. Slide 3 has a YouTube link to follow to use with the attached worksheet. This uses the official UEFA promotional video (3 mins 57 secs) and the worksheet builds vocabulary, cultural and factual knowledge such as the locations of the stadiums, their capacities, cultural images and numbers of matches, volunteers, teams etc. The worksheet is differentiated with an Extra! challenge section. The answers are on the first page of the worksheet. Slide 5 introduces key vocabulary and can be used with the matching cards. The students should work in pairs/ groups to match the vocabulary and the picture using their previous knowledge, cognates and a process of elimination. Vocabulary: Le joueur de foot Le gardien de but L’arbitre Le stade Le ballon de foot La coupe Un drapeau Une équipe Un carton jaune Le terrain de foot Un maillot de foot Des chaussures de foot The activity is differentiated as follows: All: Match Up! Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge! Some: Quick Fire Questions! (Here the students quiz each other: French to English, English to French, spellings, accents…..). Slides 6 to 17 show each word and the matching picture and colourful animations. Slide 18 has all the pictures for a quick recap. Then there is graded questioning: Slides 19 to 30 have A, B, C multiple choice questions. Slides 31 to 44 are “What’s missing?” slides. Then slide 45 has a YouTube link to the official song and video (3 mins 49 secs) and students should note down new nouns and adjectives expressing the emotions they see and feel (if they don’t know the French they can grab a dictionary later!) The creative challenges are presented on slides 45 and 46, this is to either create an acrostic, a calligramme or a poem (there is a poem template provided). This information is also on the accompanying worksheets. Slide 47 provides the opportunity for reflection. I really hope you and your students enjoy these resources!

French Teaching Resources. History of the Olympic Games. Histoire des Jeux olympiques.

French Teaching Resources. History of the Olympic Games. Histoire des Jeux olympiques.

I found a great short film (2 mins 20 secs) on YouTube about the history of the Olympic Games, I love the stylised presentation and have created a series of exercises which I hope will make the French commentary accessible to the students. There is a step-by-step PowerPoint to accompany the worksheet (the answers are both on the PowerPoint and on the worksheet). Slide 2: states the lesson objectives: Objectif: To develop your listening skills and to learn facts and vocabulary related to the history of the Olympic Games. This is differentiated into all, most and some. The first worksheet has 3 goals: All: Match the names and the pictures. Most: AND Put the countries in the order that they appear/ are mentioned. Some: AND Match the date to the correct person. To prepare for these tasks the students are told to: All: Discuss how you would pronounce the names with a French accent! Most: AND be able to translate all the countries. Some: AND be able to say all the years in French. Names include: Pierre de Coubertin, Jesse Owens, le dieu grec Zeus, Tommie Smith Countries include: Le Brésil (Rio de Janeiro), La France (Paris), La Grèce (le temple de Zeus), Dates include : 1894, 8ième siècle avant Jésus Christ, 1968 Slide 4 says: Now you will listen to and watch the short film. Remember, you are only picking out key information. Don’t worry if you don’t understand all the French you hear! Also use the images you see, your logic and previous knowledge to help. You will listen and watch twice, maybe more if your teacher agrees! Slides 5, 6 and 7 have the answers. Slide 8 gives instructions to prepare the students for the next listening task. First is to complete Exercise B which is an English to French match up of vocabulary and phrases that the students will need to in order to understand and answer the multiple choice questions. French vocabulary/ phrases include: 1. Les Jeux olympiques antiques. 2. Le pancrace, la course, le tir. 3. Les tremblements de terre et les inondations. 4. Les femmes. Slide 9 repeats the advice on Slide 4. There are 11 multiple choice questions. Examples of questions: 1. Les Jeux olympiques antiques ont été organisés en l’honneur… A. de Pierre de Coubertin. B. du dieu grec Zeus. C. de l’Empereur Théodose 1er. 2. Parmi les sports aux Jeux olympiques antiques ont été…. A. Le pancrace, la course et la boxe. B. Le pancrace, le tennis et la natation. C. Le pancrace, l’équitation et le tir. Slides 10, 11 and 12 have the answers and finally slide 13 provides the opportunity for reflection.

French dominoes and pairs (linked to level 3 mod 3 tout-le-monde)

French dominoes and pairs (linked to level 3 mod 3 tout-le-monde)

These activities work well in groups of 2-4. I get the children to start with the dominoes to link them round in a complete rectangle. Once the children have completed this, I check it and get them to leave it on the table so they can then self check when playing pairs and I know they are matching the words and pictures correctly. Pairs cards have been created so that once printed back to back the cards can not been seen through. The words cards have a different colour backing to the images so children can easily tell the difference. Therefore, they can pick one of each type to match them more easily.

French Teaching Resources: Euro 2016 Group Talk Activity. Football/ Soccer.

French Teaching Resources: Euro 2016 Group Talk Activity. Football/ Soccer.

Group Talk encourages the use of spontaneous French. Here the students use a discussion template, the discussion mat and the PowerPoint. I have designed this Group Talk to help the students discuss the teams playing in Euro 2016. In doing so they will use adjectives the future, perfect and conditional tenses and will hopefully be able to express their passion for the beautiful game! The main discussion template includes the following questions: 1. Que penses-tu de cette équipe? 2. Comment trouves-tu leur tenue ? 3. Penses-tu que cette équipe gagnera le match contre (name of opposing team) ? 4. Penses-tu que cette équipe gagnera Euro 2016 ? 5. Tu es allé(e) (name of country) e.g. en France? Question 2 model answer extract: Je pense que… Je trouve que… + la tenue est… le maillot de foot est… le short est… + très assez vraiment extrêmement + moche(s) démodé(e)(s) cool joli(e)(s) chic Students can also build in phrases from the discussion mat, including: Tu es d’accord? = Do you agree? Je suis d’accord = I agree Je ne suis pas d’accord = I disagree Je ne sais pas = I don’t know Peut-être = Perhaps Attend! = Wait! C’est ridicule! = That’s ridiculous! Tu es fou/folle?! = Are you crazy?! Ce n’est pas juste = It’s not fair! Tu plaisantes? = You must be joking/ are you joking? Show a PowerPoint slide for the students to discuss. Each slide names the country in French, has a French map of the country, a picture of the team kit, the flag, the team (pictures and names of the players), pictures of some traditional food and the group that the team are in for Euro 2016 in French. Cross-curricular stuff! Please note that I felt that an image with names AND pictures of players would be more interesting for the students than simply a list of names and sometimes the most up-to-date image I could find of the team is from a Euro 2016 qualifier. Please see the UEFA Euro 2016 website for full squad details which you may like students to access on their own devices: http://www.uefa.com/uefaeuro/ The countries on the slides are: La Belgique L’Allemagne L’Angleterre La France La République de l’Irlande Les Pays de Galles L’Espagne L’Irlande du Nord La Pologne I’ve tried to include home teams as well as some of the other bigger names such as Germany, France and Spain. You won’t want to use them all, so edit as necessary!

French Teaching Resources. Le Tour de France. Cyclisme. Cycling.

I have made this series of resources to help the students to understand the excitement, challenges, history and prestige of this incredible event and to teach them facts and vocabulary associated with Le Tour De France. It features YouTube videos, colourful slides, dominoes and a plenary board game. The second slide states: Objectif: To to learn facts and vocabulary related to the Le Tour de France. it is divided into All, Most and Some. Slide 3 acts as both the lesson hook and the warmer task: the students watch the fantastic DailyMotion (French version of YouTube) video (6 mins) showing highlights of the 2015 Tour and note down any facts and French vocabulary they already know. Slide 4 gives instructions on how to use the dominoes whereby the students match the 2 halves of sentences about Le Tour. There are also dominoes in English to support younger/weaker students: All : Put the English and French dominoes into the correct order. Most : AND Perfect Pronunciation Challenge! Some : AND Quick Fire Questions! * Here the students quiz each other about the phrases: French to English, English to French, spellings…. Extra Challenge: Don’t use the English dominoes and translate the French! Examples of dominoes phrases: Il y a 21 étapes réparties sur une période de 23 jours. La course couvre près de 3 500 kilomètres. Le coureur avec le meilleur temps total est le leader de la course et porte le maillot jaune. Slides 5 to 16 reveal the answers. The students will now watch an excellent 10 minute YouTube video explaining the Tour de France. This has brilliant graphics, but the narration is in English so I have written a worksheet with 17 multiple choice questions in French. Examples: 1. 3500 kilomètres est approximativement la distance entre New York et… A. Chicago. B. Las Vegas. C. Los Angeles. 6. Les courses de nuit ont été abandonnées à cause… A. du danger. B. de la tricherie. C. du froid. To prepare thoroughly I first instruct the students to work in teams to translate the questions. The answers are on the first two pages of the worksheet. Slide 18 has the board game which you should print off. Also in the resources are templates for dice and a cyclist template which the students can colour in and use as their counter. There are a series of multiple choice question cards to print off which cover all the information taught in the lesson. The students should answer the question correctly before being allowed to shake the die. Weaker students could be shown the questions (covering the answer below) and you may allow them to translate the question and possible answers into English together too. Slide 19 allows time for reflection.

French Teaching Resources. Rio 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games. Les Jeux Olympiques et Paralympiques

These resources celebrate the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic games. They build student’s knowledge of sports vocabulary and adjectives using YouTube extracts, colourful slides, animations, matching cards, a video extract worksheet and finally a creative task to help the students express their Olympic/Paralympic passions! Slide 2 presents the differentiated lesson objectives. Slide 3 has the Olympic motto and some great black and white pictures of Olympian heroes. Slide 4 is the warmer task to name as many Olympic/Paralympic sports as possible from student’s previous knowledge and includes links to the Ensemble Campagne officielle du CIO in both French and English (1 min 30 secs each) to inspire the students. They may do this in teams, pairs or individually. The full list of Olympic and Paralympic events can be found on a PDF in these resources. Slides 5 to 43 build new Olympic/Paralympic sports vocabulary. Expressions presented: L’athlétisme L’aviron Le canoë-kayak Les sports équestres L’escrime L’haltérophilie La lutte Le plongeon La natation synchronisée Le tir Le tir à l'arc La voile Slide 5 invites the students to: All: Match Up! Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge! Some: Quick Fire Questions! *Here the students quiz each other, e.g French to English, English to French, spellings etc. of the new vocabulary. Slides 6 to 17 have 1 slide per expression and allow you to drill the new vocabulary. Then there is graded questioning. Slides 19 to 30 show the images and give the students a choice of two possible sports to choose from. Then slides 31 to 43 are what’s missing? slides. Slide 44 should be used in conjunction with the worksheet. Here the students tick the sports they see on the Paralympic trailer video (2 mins 48 secs) and includes an extension task for stronger students. The answers are on the first two pages of the worksheet PDF. The next slide should be used in conjunction with the English-French adjectives matching cards. Adjectives: travailleur/ euse, enthousiaste, paresseux/euse, nerveux/euse, concentré(e), assuré(e), détendu, ravi(e), fier/ fière, égoïste, têtu(e), lent(e), rapide, bavard(e), habile. Then complete the second half of the worksheet where students watch the official Rio 2016 trailer and tick the adjectives which reflect the emotions of the athletes and spectators as well as other adjectives to describe what they see. There is an extension task. Then the students have a choice of three creative tasks: to design and decorate in French an Olympic torch, a flag or to write a poem about their Olympian/Paralympic hero. Both PowerPoint slides have an accompanying worksheet including a suggested poem template. The final slide provides an opportunity for reflection.

Keep Fit French: kinesthetic reading dance activity

Keep Fit French: kinesthetic reading dance activity

Keep Fit French French 'read and dance'. A fun and original kinesthetic reading activity. Devised by Jon Meier in 2012. In response to popular demand, I've finally uploaded this resource after running it for a few years with pupils at various schools and on MFL staff training workshops. Create a folder called Keep Fit French. Make sure you download both the Powerpoint and the background music file. Put both files in the folder. For the best collective experience you ideally need a group of about 8 to 20 people. Target group: 9-12 year olds and/or youthful French teachers. Test the Powerpoint – the music should play automatically from slide 5. If you can’t hear it, check your volume settings. *If the music is still not playing, see instructions at the bottom of this box. Everyone needs to be standing to do this. Spread out. Run the Powerpoint . Music should play automatically from slide 5 onwards. Read the phrase to yourself, and take one step in the direction of the correct picture. A step can be forwards, backwards, left, right or diagonally. Then step back to your starting position. Simple. Always remember to step back to your starting position The entire dance takes about 4 minutes. We've run this as an annual y7 pre-Christmas dance-off contest. Would also be good as a lunchtime fitness activity or 'Sports Relief' language event. _____________ *If the music does not play: Look at slide 5, check that the music file has been correctly inserted. Check the filename and pathname. It depends where you have put the folder. You may need to help Powerpoint to find the music file or you could reinsert it. Ensure that the sound is set to ‘start automatically’ and ‘play across slides’
