GCSE French Translation and Reading Workbook

GCSE French Translation and Reading Workbook

88 page workbook plus separate book containing answers.This resource uses texts from the old specification foundation reading GCSE papers (AQA and Edexcel). It is organised into 9 sections - topics from the new specification GCSE (both AQA and Edexcel).This workbook could last the students for their entire GCSE course, using the worksheets as you go through each of the topics.Alternatively, it could be used for cover lessons, homework, revision, or extension activities. It is designed to help students with their reading and translation skills. Students read the texts, then translate in the tables underneath, then complete the task which was originally on the exam papers. The sentences are divided into bitesize chunks in the tables to enable students to read and translate more easily. This is challenging for even the A*/Grade 7-9 students and makes them focus on vocabulary, sentence structure and creating 'proper' English sentences from French texts.

Talking about what's on TV

Talking about what's on TV

3/4 lessons leading up to adapting and acting a role-play where students argue about what to watch on TV. Very useful to have imported some pages from French TV programmes, but you surely can find some on the internet too. Students revise expressions of opinion, TV programmes and how to tell the time. See ppt notes for more details.

Les repas, using 3 tenses. Studio 2  Module 4

Les repas, using 3 tenses. Studio 2 Module 4

This is a lesson based on Studio 2, module 4 chez moi, chez toi, but I added the near future tense in the lesson, as the texts from the Studio dod not allow for this and there was a need to stretch more able. You will need to refer to the texts from Studio 2 to do the translations, but these can be done without looking at the texts if Studio 2 is not used. The sequencing activities was a differentiated activitiy to stretch more able while others needed consolidation with the tenses ( refer to lesson plan )

For instance ‘Les films romantiques sont plus intéressants que les films d’horreur’ -> they need to discuss whether they agree with this statement or not and extend their answers as much as they can.

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Vive le sport!

Research project (Motivational triggers) for KS3 French - Vive le sport!

This is a research project lesson (or two lessons really) that I created for my year 7 French students. The writing example can be easily adapted if more structures are to be added. The idea is to promote independent learning via research. Students have to research information about a sports team and create a poster. After that they have to produce a piece of writing to express their opinion on that team. Students decide on the task, the roles and start researching relevant information using their iPads (one of the students needs to summarise the information that others found). The whole process takes about 2 lessons and is perfect for the end of the topic as you can incorporate all of the structures / vocabulary learned during the term!
