KS3 French differentiated reading activity about meals - colour Qs & As in matching colours

This is a reading activity about Les repas aimed at Year 7 French. There are two texts and a list of 10 questions. Students have to colour each question a different colour and then colour the answers in each text in a corresponding colour. There are two versions of the sheet - the second has more vocabulary to help weaker students This has been tried and tested by me and my colleagues - year 7s seem to do it well.

Dans le frigo - a food / drink speaking activity for KS3 to practise il y a / il n'y a pas de

Dans le frigo - a food / drink speaking activity for KS3 to practise il y a / il n'y a pas de

This is a simple but effective speaking activity on Food & Drink for Year 7, practising il y a / il n’y a pas de, and including an information gap. Split students into pair and give one person in each pair Personne A, the other Personne B. Person A has to guess what is in their partner’s fridge: Il y a du lait? Oui il y a du lait / Non, il n’y a pas de lait Person A write down the items which person B does have in the gaps on their sheet. You could turn it into a competition so the students take it in turns to ask questions and have to be first to fill the fridge gaps in. This has always worked with Year 7 groups in the past. Any feedback welcome!

La nourriture - Qui aime? - Légumes - Card Game

La nourriture - Qui aime? - Légumes - Card Game

This game is a French version of the classic " I have… Who has …? " game, designed to practice the names of the vegetables and the verb “like”. This is an easy-to-play game and a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students’ cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary, as well as reading and listening skills. Directions: Cut out the cards along the dotted line and laminate. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies of each set. Give out all the cards in the set to the students. It is important to use all the cards. Choose a student to go first. I usually do that by a counting rhyme. Have the selected student read the question at the bottom of the card aloud and then put the card down. The student who has the card with the answer then reads that answer aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card and put the card down. Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started play. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that has been asked. I tell my younger students that this is a magic game and that the magic only works if you pay attention, which is actually true. The magic happens in the end, when the question on the last card actually matches the answer on the very first card. Enjoy!

Food and tenses reading task

Food and tenses reading task

A very short reading task to promote close reading. The texts and questions are deliberately designed to have distractors and examiner-style traps. Encourage students to read very carefully. The questions are given in A + B forms in French and English so that you can give A and B worksheets to a pair of students and each can help the other translate the tasks. I finished this lesson by getting students to design their own worksheet - they enjoyed trying to trap each other and they enjoyed writing that I had eaten snails!
