Primary French Day with sport, cookery, art and Paris architecture, KS1 KS2

If you have been tasked to plan a French Day in school but don't know where to start then this is for you. There are 4 sessions which will last at least an hour each. The information pack tells you how to deliver each session. There's a petanque session (you will need at least 4 petanque sets but I've found these cheap at 'The Works' bookshop, a cookery session (madeleines and salade nicoise, madeleine trays available for just £2 on amazon), and art session all about Monet and Toulouse Lautrec, with a different art activity for classes from Reception to Y6 to do and a French session which will could be led by the teacher organising the day but doesn't have to be. There's an evaluation sheet for children to give you feedback at the end and a letter to parents that you can adapt as you see fit. There is a timetable for the day in the info. pack you would only need change the times to suit your school. I have spent about 3 days pulling these resources together and will be using them in three of the schools where I am employed permanently as a French teacher. This literally is all you will need.

Day-Trip to St Omer

Day-Trip to St Omer

Workbook, presentation and letter to parents. Everything you need to start planning your day trip to St. Omer the workbook is full of information and tasks for students, from those starting to learn French or those who have been doing it for a while, junior to year 7. I have used it with students who don't study languages and they have enjoyed using it. The presentation is to make sure the students are prepared for the day, designed to be shown in a pre-trip meeting when laying out your expectations for the day. The letter to parents is inviting them to send their child on the day-trip. I have used this format for many years and trips have always gone very smoothly. I hope you have a great day!

The French Revolution: The Reign of Terror.

The French Revolution: The Reign of Terror.

This lesson should lead on from recently studying the 'Declaration of the Rights of Man'. Hook starter: As pupils enter the room the presentation will display an autonomously moving spot light to reveal a picture clue about the lesson. Learning Intention and differentiated outcomes (SMSC). Starter: Pupils' receive crime cards to which then then decide individually upon the most fitting punishment this will link in later with the lesson when the guillotine and how it was used during the 'Terror' is explained. Pupils can compare justice and crimes fitting the appropriate punishments. Pupils will consolidate with a video regarding how the Revolution became extreme though the September Massacre as a case study. Pupils' then compete in groups to complete a literacy relay regarding the 'Terror' to increase their knowledge of the events which took place and the main forces involved. Peep sheet has been provided here for differentiation. Pupils then watch a BBC Bitesize video to consolidate before answering a structured 8 mark exam style question. If time I then ask my pupils to peer assess with WW / EBI. All videos links are provided along with instructions and advice in the description of the presentation. Many thanks

The  French Revolution:  Storming of the Bastille.

The French Revolution: Storming of the Bastille.

I recently used this lesson for a mixed ability KS3 class. Pupils will learn about the storming of the Bastille during the French Revolution. The main task is literacy relay where pupils will work in teams to answer the questions related to the different interpretations of the Storming of the Bastille. Pupils are then to form a judgment regarding which sides' story of events they trust more, either Historian's version of events of that of the 3rd Estate. Pupils will then answer their leveled judgment question. I have also included a modern day link to how Bastille day is celebrated today along with an opportunity to learn beyond. Videos are embedded into the presentation, however I have also provided the links for these as well. Differentiation though outcome and a peep sheet to help with the main task. SMSC question included to encourage further discussion points. Many thanks.
