Year 7 German Scheme of Work (Whole year and very detailed - based on Stimmt 1)

Year 7 German Scheme of Work (Whole year and very detailed - based on Stimmt 1)

* Each page contains a table that guides teachers on what to teach and expected outcomes each week. * Table headings are: Objectives, Grammar & Tenses, Vocabulary, Pronunciation opportunities, Questions, Possible activities, Homework and Stamps, HPA (more-able students) * This scheme isn't intended to restrict teachers' activities, but to suggest ideas in case they're looking for inspiration! * Objectives are differentiated (green - weaker students; blue - mainstream; red - very able students). * Integrates grammar pages, page resources and extension activities from Stimmt 1. * Curates activities in the books to create a logical progression from discovery to production. * Makes frequent reference to exercises and resources in Stimmt. * Plenty of time built in for practice - almost all double page spreads are allocated two weeks. * This means that some units are missed out. For example, Unit 3.4 is missed out in half term 1, but integrated into the revision stage in half term 6 and then extended to revisit the future tense. * Half term 6 revisits one module per week, often making use of the excellent 'Skills' units at the end of each module. * Modules 1-5 are covered * There is a bit of jargon in the scheme: - HPA (high prior attainment = very strong students) - Stamp - we mark students' work twice per half term, so when you see 'Stamp #1' or Stamp #2', that's what it means! - PC1, PC2, PC3 etc - stands for Progress Check. This is what we call our SIMS reporting. * The final week focuses on Catholic traditions in Germany - we're a Catholic school, so if you are too, this might be useful. * There's an extra week of lessons that actually fall during February half term. My mistake, but I've kept it in there in case you finish early and could do with more! * I'll be making Kahoots and Quizlets as the year progresses, so it's worth searching StPaulsMiltonKeynes (www.quizlet.com) and MrsWilsonBavarde (www.getkahoot.it). We already have quite a bit on these sites.

Quiz-Quiz-Trade template

Quiz-Quiz-Trade template

Template for the popular 'Quiz-Quiz-Trade' activity. Students each have a small piece of paper/card with a phrase in TL and its translation underneath. Students mill around the room, when they ‘bump’ into someone student A will say their phrase in TL and student B has to translate (quiz). The same happens with student B’s card (quiz). If both students translate each other’s card correctly they trade, hence the quiz-quiz-trade. To add an element of competition, ask the students to count the amount of times they exchanged and give a prize / raffle ticket / house point to the winner.

Dice-rolling conversation - Pairwork template

Dice-rolling conversation - Pairwork template

Give the students a gap-fill text with 10 gaps in it (A to I). Of course, this can be more or fewer gaps – just remember to adjust the A to I in the table. In each gap in the text, write a letter (A to I). Along the corresponding row in the table, give 6 alternatives to go in that gap. Pupils then choose one by rolling a dice. When the student reaches the gap, they roll a dice and say/write the corresponding word.
