Tenses revision - school topic

Tenses revision - school topic

An overall revision of all tenses needed at GCSE. for the starter, print the verbs on card + cut out and make them sort them per tense (I wrote the categories on an A3 page). If you have time for 2 lessons you can make it extra good by making students explain their verb posters to each other. Make sure you provide them with key grammatical terms to use, such as 'ending', 'stem', etc.

Hogwarts brochure - in French

Hogwarts brochure - in French

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.
