die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

die Unterkunft- accommodation STIMMT 2/ ECHO 2

Pupils will explore vocab related to accommodation firstly by repetition, then with some funny activities aimed at using the vocab in context and using maximum T.L. (ex: wo kann man das Etagenbett finden? --> In einer Jugendherberge etc...). Then it puts the vocab in relation to the past tense and all of this leads to a differentiated translation group race where pupils use prior knowledge of set past tense phrases (ex: ich bin nach Spanien gefahren, das Wetter war warm, Ich habe Fussball gespielt etc...). This can be made into a competition between groups, kids like it!

GCSE GERMAN - New AQA 2018 specification GCSE-style Foundation Writing Paper on topic of Holidays

GCSE GERMAN - New AQA 2018 specification GCSE-style Foundation Writing Paper on topic of Holidays

Bemoaning the lack of new GCSE-style assessment materials to accurately assess our pupils, and using a draft assessment resource from the AQA website as a rough guide, I create my own foundation writing paper on the topic of holidays.This will need to be used in conjunction with the writing marks scheme from the new AQA specification, but at present there are no raw mark - grade conversions. This can nonetheless be devised by teachers using either professional judgement following the assessment or using percentages of old UMS conversion tables (i.e. approx. 80% = A*).
