This is resources is for anyone teaching MFL (French). It consists of a simple poster with the word "silence". I have created a pdf with a range of colourful backgrounds and also a white background for those who are trying to save their coloured ink supplies! By using cognates (words which are the same in English and French), you will be helping the children to become more confident about new language acquisition. Use the poster throughout the day to embed the teaching of French as a natural element of the school day.

I have put two lessons worth of activities together here. I normally use these lessons with Y8/9 students who are seeing the past tense for the first time. I aim to explain how to form it to give them the freedom to be creative rather than teach set expressions. The first lessons has slides on: - starter to match up familiar and cognate infinitives - list of phrases in present/past for students to identify and recognise patterns -explanation of 3 parts of perfect tense (person or object, auxiliary verb, past participle) with animations -links to YouTube videos to help with memorising avoir -Whiteboard activities to practise writing short expressions eg. I played, he hid The second lesson looks at irregular past participles: -translation starter to recap last lesson -table to complete with infinitives and past participles -short phrases to practise as a class -Connect 4 grid for pairwork -Match-up exercise for recap of time phrases -Translation exercise incorporating time phrases and past tense verbs. -Possible extension to write own paragraph.
