B. Une crèche.
C. Un cadeau.
9. In Provence how many desserts are traditionally served at Le Réveillon?
The following slides reveal the answers and include slides to further explain some of the answers. E.g. following a question about Une bûche de Noël a slides explains:
Une bûche de Noël is a Yule Log. It is a sponge cake which is rolled and shaped like a log. Inside there is a cream filling and the cake is covered in chocolate or chocolate flavoured butter cream – miam miam!
Slide 36 provides an opportunity for reflection and asks How many facts and French words can you remember?
I have planned this lesson not only to teach vocabulary and facts about football, France and Euro 2016, but also to help the students to respond creatively to their learning and hopefully share their passion for football! The PowerPoint uses matching cards, colourful pictures and animations and YouTube extracts set to music to inspire the students. It is planned to use with students from Years 6-9 (the final task is very open-ended).
Slide 2 states the objective:
Objectif: To learn about Le Football & Euro 2016 and to respond creatively to your learning.
Slide 3 has a YouTube link to follow to use with the attached worksheet. This uses the official UEFA promotional video (3 mins 57 secs) and the worksheet builds vocabulary, cultural and factual knowledge such as the locations of the stadiums, their capacities, cultural images and numbers of matches, volunteers, teams etc. The worksheet is differentiated with an Extra! challenge section. The answers are on the first page of the worksheet.
Slide 5 introduces key vocabulary and can be used with the matching cards. The students should work in pairs/ groups to match the vocabulary and the picture using their previous knowledge, cognates and a process of elimination.
Le joueur de foot
Le gardien de but
Le ballon de foot
Un carton jaune
Le terrain de foot
Un maillot de foot
Des chaussures de foot
The activity is differentiated as follows:
All: Match Up!
Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge!
Some: Quick Fire Questions! (Here the students quiz each other: French to English, English to French, spellings, accents…..).
Slides 6 to 17 show each word and the matching picture and colourful animations.
Slide 18 has all the pictures for a quick recap.
Then there is graded questioning:
Slides 19 to 30 have A, B, C multiple choice questions.
Slides 31 to 44 are “What’s missing?” slides.
Then slide 45 has a YouTube link to the official song and video (3 mins 49 secs) and students should note down new nouns and adjectives expressing the emotions they see and feel (if they don’t know the French they can grab a dictionary later!)
The creative challenges are presented on slides 45 and 46, this is to either create an acrostic, a calligramme or a poem (there is a poem template provided). This information is also on the accompanying worksheets.
Slide 47 provides the opportunity for reflection.
I really hope you and your students enjoy these resources!

This package contains a range of materials for the teaching of KS3, GCSE and A level French. I have included some tracking documents using both the Old KS2 levels and the new Scaled score levels as a starting point. Each of the trackers comes with an analysis tool so that you know where you are with the cohort and you can identify the different groups of learners (PP, AEN etc).
