French Calendar Puzzles / Worksheets (Days, Months, Dates)
Beginners KS2 / KS3 (Year 4, 5, 6 and 7) French Calendar (Le Calendrier) vocabulary writing activities (worksheets and puzzles) for revision of days, months and dates. Students practise months of the year (les mois de l’annee), days of the week (les jours de la semaine), saying the date (la date), and key phrases: ‘Quelle est la Date?’ and ‘C’est quel jour?’ 3 worksheets, 3 crossword puzzles and a word search. Differentiated versions of almost all activities. These resources will help you plan multiple lessons at Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 3 (upper Primary and early Secondary and equivalents) for students beginning French or near beginners requiring revision of basic vocab and phrases.

The first two worksheets come in differentiated versions, using a star system. The one-star versions are for younger, lower ability, or less experienced students. They include sentence starters and / or less challenging questions. Worksheet 2 is more challenging than the others, with a very short reading comprehension and questions related to yesterday’s and tomorrow’s date. Worksheet 3 (Anagrams) is not differentiated. All 3 crosswords come with and without supporting word banks. The word search comes in 2 versions too, one for older or higher ability students where they can write the French words on the lines once they have found them in the word search and an easier version with the first three letters of the French words provided to start students off.

Within the Zip file are two PDF files, one containing the worksheets and the other the puzzles. These resources can be used in any English-speaking country (UK and US date versions where relevant).

The puzzles include:

  • A simple crossword for days of the week (Les jours de la semaine)

  • A simple crossword for months of the year (Les mois de l'annee)

  • A larger crossword combining days of the week and months of the year

  • A word search for days and months

  • Solutions for all 4 puzzles

As the first crossword is very small, two are included on one page. I would be very grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks.
