Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

Brussels comic strip mural / Bruxelles parcours BD

I believe that reading comic books from francophone countries (in English or French) is a major cultural point. The Brussel comic strip mural walk is amazing but sadly not everyone has the chance to go there. This website offers your students the possibility to check that famous city walk through an interactive map.

KS1 / 2 Whole Day Taster Sessions (French)

KS1 / 2 Whole Day Taster Sessions (French)

These resources were used with a Y2 class to do a whole day of French. They are also non-linguist friendly (copy/type words into a google dictionary to hear how they're pronounced). There are 3 sessions which were interspersed with song-singing, accompanied by actions to break up the activities. Tete, epaules, genoux, pieds was a favourite! These sessions were delivered to 50 pupils over the course of a day in a mixed comprehensive school, in a socially and economically deprived area, with 50% of the class being EAL. However, it contains ample content to be easily exploited for a hungrier audience. Each session contains the 'date board' I use as a starter for all of my lessons across KS3 and 4. It's so simple but focuses pupils immediately. Session 1(47 slides) has a cultural focus and will show pupils how many landmarks around the world are within easy reach of the UK. The resource includes pictures and maps as well as driving / flying time from the U.K. to these places. There is scope for an easy extension activity here - pupils couldresearch the French landmarks and present their findings to the rest of the class for example. Session 2 (6 slides) brings French language in, without it being too intense and gives pupils the opportunity to practise basic phrases and French handwriting. Session 3 (11 slides) brings in lots of language, focusing on the basics with support whilst also allowing pupils to push themselves with the extension documents. For session 3, once the starter activity had been completed, I divided the 50 pupils across 8 groups, on 8 tables and we did a carousel activity to progress through the difference phrases. I assigned table leaders to explain their sentence to their group and how the sheet could be used to support them to write sentences about themselves. Each sheet contains extension phrases. Once pupils had grasped how to use the sheets (around 4 tables in for some of them!), they felt confident to manipulate the sentences for themselves and the whole activity became much quicker. I planned to bring the focus back to the French style handwriting if it were the case that pupils finished the activity in order to produce display work. They took a long time to make but went down a treat so it was time well spent. Enjoy!

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Bon voyage  (Holidays) (AQA new spec)

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Bon voyage (Holidays) (AQA new spec)

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 7 French students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about the place that they would like to visit (any place in world really but I encouraged to visit France). Students decide on the task and start researching relevant information about the chosen location using their iPads/ Chromebooks. At the same time they create a poster or a travel brochure with pop-up images (!!!) about the chosen location. During the second lesson they distribute the writing task bullet points in-between the members of the group and complete a piece of writing as per success criteria and model answer. In the end they stick their written notes (or attach them) to their poster /travel brochure. The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term! Note: the writing example is oriented on the revision of tenses studied this year, holidays, weather and location vocabulary. Please let me know if you have any other ideas on how this project can be implemented. If you still have some time left you can enjoy few games I have inserted to simply have fun during the (possibly) last lesson of the year.

End of topic project Directions - En ville

End of topic project Directions - En ville

Students spend 3-4 lessons (1h) to complete the project. They learn about a town in France and create a travel brochure in French. I used this activity with my Year 8s and they loved it. I included a reflection sheet to get them to think about the skills they used during this project. I paired them up but can be an individual activity.
