Freetime Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Freetime Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Writing and Speaking practice for the new GCSE (based on the AQA scheme of work), can be used across any language (in my school we use it for German, French and Spanish).I use this at the end of a module for students to recap and add it to their file for future reference. It prepares them for writing assessments and the general conversation part of the speaking assessment.There are 8 questions for students to answer on the topic FREETIME.I have also included a generic checklist for students to use, to make sure they are using tenses, opinions, justification etc. as well as a blank checklist for teachers/ students to add language specifics/ extra criteria for higher target grades. I am also selling similar placemats for other topics.

Word order: Time phrases in a German sentence

Word order: Time phrases in a German sentence

The power point is a step-by-step introduction to time phrases and their position in German sentences. The topic area is spare time/hobbies. We begin with time phrases and their English meaning. We then put them after the verb and finally we move them to the front of the sentence to demonstrate the first rule of German word order. There are plenty of consolidating activities on different slides throughout. The power point can be integrated into the course work, it can be used for revision and exam preparation. It comes with a worksheet which can be used for homework or for consolidation in class. All copyright is with rosered27.
