This stuff went down really well with my Y9s (middle ability). They'd learnt how to do regular avoir verbs in the perfect tense and I wanted to move them on to use some irregular verbs.
The starter is matching the infinitives, past participles & English meaning of some irregular verbs, then I worked through the activities on the Dejeuner du Matin powerpoint. I'd say it would take 2-3 lessons to get everything done, depending how much time you spend on discussion and pronunciation practice.
A brochure in French for Hogwarts School - my Y11s went nuts over this, they're all big Harry Potter fans, and its fame spread so I ended up with Y7s asking if they could see it too (I suspect a lot of them thought it was really from Hogwarts, bless them).
You could use this for a reading comprehension, gapfill, speaking activity - anything really.
These are from the old spec AQA GCSE papers, but they're still of use for revision & exam practice. I&'ve taken all of the questions from the last 3 years&'; reading, writing é speaking papers and put them into booklets by topic - I use them as ongoing homework or classwork with my GCSE groups as we're going through the key topics. Hope they&'re useful to other people as well!

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.
A series of powerpoint on the topic of Francophonie. A more closer look at Reunion island.
Couldn't upload the videos but you can find &'les grands champions de la francophonie&'; on youtube (Francophonie 2) and use the clip from 'Jeunes Francophones&' on Senegal for the pwp on Goree island.

Activities on the pwp start at 1:30.
