Very popular with all my classes, especially more challenging groups! Add up vocab test results for each pupils and then write who's got the highest running total in the 'Current Wordmeister Supreme' box. Great competition!

Vocab spinners. Cut these out and use them to revise vocab. Stick a stick in the middle and pupils spin it! On the second slide are the cards to use with the spinner. Pupils pick up one of the cards and do the challenge from the spinner. The challenges are: spell it, write it, define it, use it.

Trapdoor template

Trapdoor template

This activity can be done in pairs or as a class. As a class, one pupil leaves the room while everyone else decides what the correct sequence should be. The pupil re-enters the room and tries to guess the sequence. If incorrect, they have to start again. It's better as a pairwork activity. One pupil decides which options they want to use in the complete paragraph. The other reads through the paragraph, guessing the options as they go. If incorrect, they must start again. Cue lots of laughter!

Translation pairwork template

Translation pairwork template

Pupils work in pairs. Give them a text to translate on the sheet individually to start with, then they swap for their partner to check (in their opinion). Their partner puts a mark in the box (my pupils like drawing sad faces for some reason!) for each error they think their partner has made. Encourages discussion.

I use this to do 'walk-throughs' with classes, especially GCSE. Show them the first section to translate, discuss and then show them how you translated it. Feedback from my classes has been great for this. They have found it very useful. It's almost like doing 'workings out' in maths.

Type in a word/phrase it the TL on one line and then the equivalent in English opposite it (as in the example). Do this within each inner section and then cut it up into cards. Pupils must then form a triangle with the cards by matching the TL to the English. Instructions are in the notes section of the PPT. It's worth Googling 'Tarsia puzzles'!

Speaking Trivial Pursuit template

Speaking Trivial Pursuit template

Good for revision for speaking exams. Pupils can do this in pairs. In advance, choose the topics or sub-topics. Their partner decides if their answer is good enough. If so, they colour in the segment in the relevant colour. If not, they discuss why and may try again. This is just one of many possible activities.
