Manchester Places Wordsearch Geography Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Manchester Places Wordsearch Geography Literacy Starter Activity Homework Cover Lesson Plenary

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Manchester Places'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

European Day of Languages Design Your Own Flag Sheets

European Day of Languages Design Your Own Flag Sheets

This activity is taking more of a creative approach allowing pupils to design their own flag. It comes in three forms: blank flag, English writing and French writing so pupils can work on whichever skill they need. For example, a pupil who loves football could draw himself playing football or a football pattern and underneath write, "Ce drapeau me représente car j'adore le foot. Je le joue avec mes copains..." etc. If you wanted to go all out you could find some old pillowcases, get the fabric paints out and turn these designs into real flags to hang around the school. Wouldn't that be fun?! You might also be interested in: European Day of Languages Board Game European Day of Languages QR Code Quiz For amazing French and Spanish resources visit lovelanguage.

European Day of Languages QR Code Quiz

European Day of Languages QR Code Quiz

This quiz contains ten simple general knowledge questions and pupils need to scan the QR codes (I put them up around the room) to find the answers. Each code has a letter assigned to it so even if the pupils know some of the answers already, they still need to find the letter. This quiz can also be used as a starting point for a bit of research using the iPads. For example, question four asks pupils to find the country that is in both Europe and Asia. Once the quiz is over (or as a filler while others are finishing), they could be asked to find five interesting facts about Turkey to share with the rest of the class. Included: - Question sheet - Answer sheet - QR codes You might also be interested in: European Day of Languages Board Game European Day of Languages Design Your Own Flag For amazing French and Spanish resources visit lovelanguage.

Designed to try to appeal to every pupil in the classroom, there are both skill tasks and question cards with pupils being given the opportunity to write and form letters using unknown alphabets, say words in both new and familiar languages and answer general knowledge questions. Instructions: - Pupils play in small groups of 2-6 players. - Place all the question and skill cards face down in the correct place on the board. - Pupils choose a star to start on. - Roll the dice, the pupil with the highest number starts. - Pupils take it in turns to roll the dice and move clockwise around the board. - If a pupil lands on “Q”, another player picks up the “Q” card and asks them the question. If the pupil answers the question correctly they get to keep the card. - If a pupil lands on “S” they pick up the “S” card and complete the skill. If the pupil completes the skill they get to keep the card. - If a pupil lands on the dice they get to roll again. - There is no finish position. The game continues until all the cards have been won or time is up and the person with the most cards wins. Included: - Game board (print on 4 pieces of A4) - Full, easy to understand instructions - Question cards - Additional blank cards for your own questions - Skill cards - A5 support cards for plasticine task - Blank flag counters You might also be interested in: European Day of Languages QR Code Quiz European Day of Languages Design Your Own Flag For amazing French and Spanish resources visit lovelanguage.
