New French GCSE - Writing exam: practice papers and Feedback sheets

New French GCSE - Writing exam: practice papers and Feedback sheets

Three sets of writing papers, following the new French GCSE specification (AQA). Each individual set includes two papers (foundation and higher) covering one of the three themes (Identity and culture, Local, regional, international and global areas of interest and Current and future study and employment), as well as an overview of the requirements of the exam and a foundation and a higher "check list" to provide the students with quick, personalised feedback for each question.

New French GCSE -Theme 3 (Current and future study and employment) writing exam and feedback sheets

Two practice writing papers (one foundation, one higher) following the format of the new GCSE writing exam, and focusing on the topics covered in Theme 3 (Current and future study and employment). The foundation paper includes four questions (describe the photo, 40 words question, translation and 90 words question) and the higher paper includes three (90 words question, 150 words question and translation). I have also included two feedback sheets (one foundation, one higher) that include"check-lists" (based on the AQA mark scheme for writing) to provide quick, personalised feedback for each of the questions. The check lists provide the students with feedback on what went well (WWW) and what they need to do to improve further (TIF). Also available in Spanish

Mon travail bénévole

Mon travail bénévole

A lesson on volunteering and charity work. Includes a photo to describe, a reading comprehension, a group work, and an outline of a writing task. I also included two activities based on authentic French resources on volunteering which probably may be more suitable for higher ability students: a translation into English and a reading with a potential extension writing activity.

Free lesson starter about school subjects in French

Free lesson starter about school subjects in French

You can use this starter in many ways. Ask students to take in turns and ask questions about school subjects. If can ask the question with no hesitation, they can move across. The aim is to try to ask as many questions as possible in French. The only rule: move in any directions but do not skip.
