Whole lesson power point presentation and handout on using the perfect tense with être and with avoir to talk about where you went and what you did last night/weekend.
Lesson activities include:
- Introducing a range of adjectives which will be used in the lesson. Students translate into English.
- Recapping the perfect tense with être and avoir. Students then conjugate the verbs from the previous task in the first person singular (je).
- Speaking task: Working in pairs students read the conjugated verbs from the previous task in order to review and practice the pronunciation of of –é at the end of the past participle. They comment on each other’s pronunciation.
- Reading task: Students read a longer text where someone describes themselves and what they did on the weekend. They find the corresponding French for the English phrases given.
- Reading task: Students read the text again and put the pictures in the order they’re mentioned in the text.
- Listening task: Students listen to Lucas talking about what he did last night/weekend and complete the sentences by choosing the correct option from the two given each time.
- Reading task: Students match each of the sentence openings with the correct ending, based on where someone went and what they did.
- Speaking task: Working in pairs, students play ‘Bip’. One student reads out a sentence from the previous exercise, replacing a phrase with the word ‘bip’; the other pupil identifies the missing phrase. They then swap roles.
- Writing task: Students write a blog, introducing themselves and describing what they did last night/weekend. A list of points to cover is supplied, as well as sentence starters.
