GREETINGS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION IN FRENCH

GREETINGS AND PERSONAL INFORMATION IN FRENCH

This is a comprehensive and interactive PPT with 42 slides on greetings and personal information. The first part goes through the various ways of greetings, both formal and informal. The second part looks at how to ask and respond to a range of personal information: name, age, phone number, date of birth, where I live and come from, nationality, job, where you work. It is followed by some practice and a who's who game with pictures of famous people. It is suitable for KS3 students but I also found it very useful for KS4 students in preparation for the role-plays, as they often forget how to ask and respond properly to basic questions.

Spelling Bee

Spelling Bee

An interactive presentation to practise and revise vocabulary with young students. Ideal to add a little competition within your class, or year group. The vocabulary used can easily be amended. In the presentation as it is, it is aimed at year 7 students and includes: survival kit, countries, compass points, days of the week, months, seasons, greetings, school subjects, times of the day, frequency phrases, connectives and adjectives. Instructions: click on a number (possibly suggested by students in the target language) which will take you to the same number slide and introduce a word in English. Students then spell out the word and can check when you reveal the word on the board. Click on the bee in the top left-hand corner to return to the main slide and click on another number. Numbers that have been clicked on before become shaded, but still can be clicked on.

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!

Fun Giant Crosswords BUNDLE

Fun Giant Crosswords BUNDLE

3 fun giant quiz crosswords puzzles to use throughout the year. These work especially well for completion by groups, with pupils working together, pooling their knowledge and enjoying the challenge of trying to finish before other groups. Printing in A3 is ideal but if you can only do A4, this works fine too. These crosswords were originally designed for Upper Key Stage 2 but will also suit some lower KS2 classes as well as some early KS3 classes. You could use these as Back to School / Start of Year activities with your new class in the first week back, at the start or end of any terms, for special events during the year or for early finisher activities. There's a Children's Book Crossword that would suit World Book Day or some other celebration of reading and authors. The Roald Dahl Crossword could also be used for World Book Day, on Roald Dahl Day or after a focus on this writer. There's also a Basic French Revision Crossword that works especially well at the beginning or end of the year to revise key vocabulary on greetings and introductions, numbers, dates, weather, colours, classroom objects etc. Solutions for all crosswords are included as are Answer Sheets, which contain the answers listed in alphabetical order. These can be given out for support where needed or just provided at the end for pupils to complete any part of the puzzle they are stuck on. Alternatively pupils could research missing answers. If you want two or all three of these crosswords, this bundle offers the best value. However, if you would only like one, you can get it individually by clicking on the relevant resource. You can also do this to find out more detailed information and see previews for them. The French Crossword is also available as part of some of my great value French resource bundles - click on the French Crossword and follow the links to see more about the bundles. I hope your pupils enjoy using these and I would be grateful for any reviews you can leave here on TES. Many thanks.

French Greetings Bundle

French Greetings Bundle

All you will need for a strong and engaging first lesson with your new classes. That first lesson back can be a bit flat because they resources for greetings and simple questions and answers can be pretty dull. Whether you buy this bundle to use with beginner learners or as a refresher lesson for new classes, you won't be disappointed. I have included a great video with music and robots for immediate impact- pop it on as they walk in. The PowerPoint introduces the vocab so you can drill and then includes some classic language games and a chance for you to get them to listen and match up (and copy the lang into their books if you wish). There is a 'one page learning' great for differentiation, as a support tool, a revision sheet, homework, learning mat...whatever you like! An interactive quiz for a snappy start or memorable exit game and two versions of follow me cards (small class or large class). Second PowerPoint to introduce days of week and months of year also included. GREAT VALUE!!! Please consider leaving a review :)
