I tried to select a nice topic and theme to teach and revise various skills and grammatical aspects . It links to Expo3 ( la Normandie ) rouge with the discovery of an area but I jaust added more on this so students get to compare areas and see how varied France is. I will add more through a different power point and add worksheets , this is taking ages .... hope it helps. I used the interactive quiz with the gap fill as a little starter and introduction about the Alps before showing the Power Point.
This was at first a cross curricular project with the Geography Dept and can be with tweaks. I like this project as pupils feel proud by the fact that they can speak the language confidently. For this topic, pupils learn the basic weather sentences while touching on the future, revising connectives and working on sentence structure. These plans can be adapted for all classes. These worked for me and the year group I had but I had changed some resources as this was a different cohort. At the end pupils are assessed on their speaking skills and can be on their writing skills once they write up the script up.
There are 5 lessons and many resources to support the lessons. There is also a peer assessment forms as well as self assessment.
