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. Successfully used as an interview lesson!
This in a great activity for the teacher and the students to introduce themselves to each other in the first German lesson. There are different levels for KS3 to KS5 (except for complete beginners).
The teacher writes down different words to do with themselves and the students write/say sentences to guess. They then play in pairs. There are different slides with decreasing amounts of support depending on the ability of the class.
