Au cinema

Au cinema

Au cinema is a writing frame designed to guide students written work to include a variety of linguistic features necessary for GCSE. The support phrases are in both French and English, you could leave this as cover work or give as homework or revision in preparation for the written or the spoken exam. I have used this with a top year 9 group as a challenge and they wrote some interesting pieces or with a year 10 or 11 group especially those who need more encouragement and guidance.
