German writing practice: past tense work experience

German writing practice: past tense work experience

This writing task has 10 German sentences to complete about work experience in the past tense. It has been differentiated to three levels of difficulty. The first (easiest) has 2 gaps shown and the missing words are listed at the end of each sentence, not necessarily in the correct order. The second version has the same 2 words shown at the end of each sentence, but the gaps are not shown, so pupils decide where to place the words. The third version shows the gaps but has all the missing words jumbled together in a box below the task. All three tasks fit on one page of A4. Answers are provided on the second page.

GCSE German tenses practice and translation worksheet

GCSE German tenses practice and translation worksheet

A two-sided worksheet which works through a set of tasks, leading up to two translations. It starts with simple tasks to complete the spellings of verbs in the present then perfect tense, asking pupils to translate these sentences too. Then a task using Ich möchte/Ich will/Ich werde + infinitive to translate sentences into German. Then a more open-ended task for pupils to make up their own sentences in all three tenses; this task can be made more challenging by requiring more able pupils to include certain additional information if you choose. Finally there is a pair of paragraphs for translation, one into English and another into German. The translations are both on the theme of holidays. Answers provided on same document. I have used this with y10 and y11, but also suitable for confident KS3 pupils who have covered the tenses.
