Pupils guess the WALT - you can find the pop song, Redstar boulot dodo under the GCSE school tab on my blog: www.madameegli.blogspot.com or on You Tube.
Quick off the draw/broken pieces - each pupil has a text and the pupils run to the teacher with the cards, when they get the answer right they take the next card.
The pupils have the French A* toolkit laminated on their desks every lesson.
Lesson introducing rooms in the house, including a guessing-game for the starter, a match-up, a reading activity, battleships for speaking practice (handout version is already available on TES), a longer reading activity and an ongoing dictionary task as an extension activity.
