A lesson plan and resources for teaching children some basic forms of transport in French, including using the phrase 'Je vais...'
I used this resource with able KS1 children but would probably work for lower KS2 too.
The lesson takes about an hour (depending on size of group, ability of children and how long you choose to spend on some of the interactive activities.
The plan contains 3 sections:
an introduction - circle time activity
main - interactive games, flash card activities and practical group activities
independent activity and goodbye - time to complete independent worksheets and activities and say goodbye.
Flash Cards for display and matching pairs activity (inc word document so that you can edit)
Matching vocab and picture worksheet
Fill in the correct transport worksheet
Transport 'Squares Game'
The objectives of this lesson are:
By the end of the session most children will:
• Be learning to use ‘I go by…(train, bus etc)
• Be able identify some words for various forms of transport
• Start to answer questions in French about different types of transport
The planning is fairly flexible you can spend longer on some parts than others, do activities as a whole class or print multiple resources and work as smaller groups - whatever works for your group of children!
I have produced 10 lessons in total covering some of the French basics which you are also able to purchase as a bundle from my TES shop. Topics include: Introductions and Numbers, Colours, Weather, Age and Months, Farm Animals, Food, In My Pencil Case, Where I Live, Transport. All lessons follow a similar pattern and activities.
