I am a French and Spanish teacher. You will find here some resources I have produced to teach my students. Some are fun and innovative and others are more old fashioned. A variety of topics covered. Also some cultural knowledge resources. Enjoy...!
Gap filling exercise which I designed for my Yr9 (Grade5/6) on the weather (I guess would be suitable for Yr8 top set or Yr10 too). Text has both present/future weather forecast. I gave each student a different strip and they then go around the class asking each other for some words they haven't got, reading the text in French. It's differentiated so you can give out strips according to your students' ability. The strips get harder and harder. The complete text is on the last strip for the teacher to help if needed. Then, I got students to translate text in English followed by adapting it to write a weather forecast about France or another country they like. Enjoy and don't forget to feedback :-)
