Spot Santa: Christmas Market in Montreux, Switzerland- Marché de Noël

This is a powerpoint presentation with 58 slides, taking on a visit around the famous Montreux Christmas Market, one of the biggest one in Europe. Each slide got a clear photo taken at a time when it was not crowded by people so you can really get a taste of this Christmas market. Each slide also has a simple sentence describing the photo. Finally, to make sure your students get a little bit extra fun, there are 58 tiny Santas hidden (one on each slide) for them to spot.

French - Christmas facts & fun

French - Christmas facts & fun

This PPT introduces some facts about Christmas in France and can be used in conjunction with the Christmas wordsearch, where a lot of the vocab used is introduced. For the wordsearch, students use a school French dictionary to look up the English Christmas words and find the French words in the grid. The PPT starts by introducing and then practising some facts about Christmas in France, followed by a video of a Christmas market in Mulhouse, Alsace. There is then a Connect 4 game, practising the vocab and facts, followed by an Advent Calendar team game. Instructions are in the notes section of the PPT.

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3/KS4 French AQA - Christmas project

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3/KS4 French AQA - Christmas project

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my KS3/lower KS4 French students. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about French Christmas, compare the traditions with the ones in Britain and to create a presentation / poster. Students decide on the task, the roles and start researching relevant information using their iPads (one of the students needs to summarise the information that others found). There is also a designer and an analyst (usually the most attaining student in the group. Enjoy!
