French - Activities in town

French - Activities in town

Activities in town. To start with, show the phrases for the activities with the words jumbled up. Pupils can then work out (if possible!) what the correct word order should be, before being told what the activities are. The second activity for the pupils is one where all the images of the activities are on the board and when you say one of the activities in French, they raise their hands, according to what symbol is by the picture. Finally, pupils translate the sentences into English at the end of the PPT. The sentences are saying what you can do and where.
