Y8 Clothes topic Challenge Tasks

Y8 Clothes topic Challenge Tasks

Challenge tasks or extension work on the topic of clothes. These are all based on authentic French resources (mainly infographs found on Pinterest) with comprehension questions added. I put these up on my 'Challenge Wall' in the classroom for the term and direct any students to them who finish their work early. To save photocopying costs I encourage students not to write on the sheets and to put them back on the wall when they're finished. I find that students get a huge sense of achievement from knowing that they are reading and understanding real French literature! As an extra incentive to try more difficult work I offer 'challenge stars' in return for tackling these tricky tasks. These are converted periodically into merits.

Key Stage 3 Revision Pictures Blockbuster

Key Stage 3 Revision Pictures Blockbuster

Here is a variation of my Pictures Blockbusters template for PowerPoint designed specifically for KS3 pupils. It offers a great way to revise about numbers, time, sports, likes and dislikes, opinions, school subjects, school routine... The concept is simple. 25 boxes are filled with numbers, questions or English words that pupils have to say in French. If the pupils answer correctly you click on the box and it disappears. I used for this template images from France so the pupils can discover a new tourist attraction every time.

GCSE FRENCH - Technology  in Everyday Life - COLOUR MATCH

GCSE FRENCH - Technology in Everyday Life - COLOUR MATCH

This is a colour match exercise to practise vocabulary from the AQA syllabus. Students find a pair which mean the same, in English and French. They then colour them the same colour. If they run out of colours they could use stripes, spots etc. If you are short on time they could number the boxes instead of colouring them in. The second sheet is for students to fill in the words as they find them and then to use as a vocab list. This is useful for a starter, a cover lesson or a homework
