KS2 French Topic Support Mats - pack 6 + template

KS2 French Topic Support Mats - pack 6 + template

Promote independent learning and support progression and differentiation in 6 common topic areas with this pack of topic support mats. Based on the assumption that pupils will move from word to sentence level and develop grammatical understanding in the course of a topic, they are colour-coded for gender and parts of speech, and include model sentences. Extension language offers additional challenge. The absence of English on these mats requires pupils to develop their recall skills and ensures that the language they use is language that they know and can apply rather than merely copy. The mats can start to be used as soon as some of the topic vocabulary has been introduced in written form and subsequently provide a support and stimulus for the remainder of the topic. An essential tool for developing language manipulation in the primary classroom, they also serve as a check for the teacher that topics include sufficient opportunity for progression.
French Beginners  Classroom Jeopardy Game

French Beginners Classroom Jeopardy Game

Based on the brilliant template by Kevin Dufendach which I have adapted for the UK, this is a substantial classroom game for 8 players or teams. There are 6 single jeopardy topics (clothes, food, regular -er verbs, Easter, numbers, common words) and six grammar-based double jeopardy topics. The final jeopardy question has a betting component where contestants can win or lose as much as they like. There is an optional timer at the bottom of the question slides, and upbeat music that could really get on the your nerves (turn the volume down!). You probably need to allow about half an hour to get through to the end. Instructions and optional settings are included, as is a link to the Excel template which you could use to make your own version of the game. Make sure you enable macros on your computer, or none of it will work! Do leave feedback, as it’s really helpful in preparing future games!
