Re-energise and challenge your MFL classes with this hand-picked collection of French, Spanish and German projects
As the summer approaches, in-class projects are a perfect way to keep pupils engaged as they continue to develop all four key skills and - dare we say - have fun! From creative writing tasks to collaborative group activities, your students are guaranteed to get on board with this selection of ready-to-use projects.
Research projects, like this one on francophone countries, are a great way to get KS3 pupils practising their writing skills, as well as working productively in teams and developing their research skills. Equally, this space-themed creative writing task offers an imaginative way for students to not only learn new vocabulary, but also construct sentences that are out of this world!
Alternatively, bring a traditional family tree exercise into the 21st century with this Instagram project, ideal for recapping keywords within the topic.
Set young learners the challenge of perfecting their use of the past tense with this scrapbook project, in which they write a fictional travel log about a visit to a Spanish-speaking country.
On another note, this step-by-step presentation* gets students composing a catchy song with lyrics all about verb tenses. Or, take the time to think about homelessness with this introductory presentation, giving older classes the opportunity to practice all four key skills.
This collection of activities, culminating in the production of an animal factsheet, is a simple way to get learners to work on adjective endings, comparatives and questions words in an enjoyable way. Additionally, students can investigate the culture of Germany, from cars to food, while expanding their independent learning skills with this comprehensive booklet.
For something completely different, why not try this speaking and listening project*, in which small groups plan, write and film an episode for a home makeover programme? Just don’t forget to leave time to show the films as they have the potential to provide some very entertaining footage!
