A lesson plan and resources for teaching children weather words and phrases in French.
I used this resource with able KS1 children but would probably work for lower KS2 too.
The lesson takes about an hour (depending on size of group, ability of children and how long you choose to spend on some of the interactive activities.
The plan contains 3 sections:
an introduction - circle time activity
main - interactive games, flash card activities and practical group activities
independent activity and goodbye - time to complete independent worksheets and activities and say goodbye.
Flash Cards for display and learning vocab
Matching Pairs Game
Create your own weather forecast activity
Weather 'squares' game
The objectives of this lesson are:
By the end of the session most children will:
• Begin to learn some different words for weather
• Understand the question ‘what is the weather like?’
• Have practised answering weather questions in a sentence.
The planning is fairly flexible you can spend longer on some parts than others, do activities as a whole class or print multiple resources and work as smaller groups - whatever works for your group of children!
I have produced 10 lessons in total covering some of the French basics which you are also able to purchase either individually or as a bundle from my TES shop. Topics include: Introductions and Numbers, Colours, Weather, Age and Months, Farm Animals, Food, In My Pencil Case, Where I Live, Transport, Parts of the Body. All lessons follow a similar pattern and activities.
