This is a series of four worksheets (16 pages total) explaining the German case system, intended to support students with little or no prior knowledge of noun declension, gradually introducing topics which should be more than sufficient to see them through both GCSE and A Level. They have been tried and tested on my own students, who have not only enjoyed completing them, but have also shown considerable progress while learning from home. Worksheet 1 introduces case and tests knowledge of the definite and indefinite articles; Worksheet 2 deals with prepositions governing different cases; Worksheet 3 plays with word order and introduces pronouns, and Worksheet 4 shows how adjectives work within the case system The layout of each worksheet is the same: the first page explains the grammar point with examples and tables (these are handy for using within lessons too). Pages 2-3 contain a variety of scaffolded exercises, designed to test comprehension of the learning objective. Page 4 contains answers to the activities, so students/cover staff can mark work.

Based on the model answers for my German Writing Workbook (https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-german-gcse-writing-workbook-and-model-answers-11657241) this reading workbook contains 3 reading worksheets for every topic in the new AQA German GCSE syllabus plus answers for every task at the end of the document. Ideal for reading practice and assessments in Key Stage 4, revision and independent work for Year 11, or extension work for more able Key Stage 3 students. This can also be used for cover lessons with non-specialists as the tasks are straightforward and there are answers. As well as the Word document, I have included a PDF in case the fonts are not available on certain computers and the formatting therefore doesn’t work properly on the Word doc. All questions and answers are my own, based on the new specification GCSE reading papers, and the photos are from royalty-free websites and it is all therefore photocopiable.

Format: alternatives are suggested for three common sentence structures which are often overused. On the reverse side are some worked examples. The language here can be used in all essays on any play/film/work of literature and will help boost students’ language marks with minimal effort. This handout is ready to print and hand to students.

There are 6 sections, for the 6 different question types in the new exam, and each section has a sample question for each sub-topic (with vocab taken from the AQA specification vocab list). There are translations (sentences and paragraphs) from English into German for each sub-topic as well. This will last students for their entire GCSE course, or can be given in Year 11 for revision. Can also be split apart and used for assessments in Key Stage 4, as a time-saver for setting homework or in-class writing tasks, or as extension tasks for high-ability Year 9 pupils, to help them get prepared for the GCSE. Once the students have prepared answers to the longer tasks, they could also be used to help with preparation for the speaking exam.
