Six worksheets (12 pages; print two pages per sheet) containing a range of sequential vocabulary matching, short reading, short writing, translation and basic grammar activities to revise and consolidate language and structures from Acces Studio units 1, 2, 3, 9, 10 and 12 (greetings, how you are, age and birthday, family members, (who) is called / are called, where I live, countries and nationalities). I use them in the run-up to assessments to support pupils writing in sentences.Instructions are in English. Later activities are supported by earlier ones. Please note that formatting is optimised for printing two pages per sheet, hence the 12 pages - mostly because I live for A5-sized worksheets.
