KS4 German: What should you be? Job quiz!

KS4 German: What should you be? Job quiz!

Fun independent activity for KS4 German. In lessons we covered jobs, personality words, and modal verbs: then students created a flowchart quiz using questions about personality and future plans (I used lucidchart.com to create mine!). They loved bringing in their flowcharts and doing each other's!

Jollyphonics

Jollyphonics

Keywords: Pronunciation, Phonics, Sounds of German. This lesson can be the first lesson for new learners of German (either KS2 or KS3). It blends visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning strategies to embed the key sounds of German so that learners can apply this knowledge straightaway to new language they encounter. They develop autonomy and confidence quickly with this approach. Look out for the other lessons in this term's work. There are 33 PowerPoint lesson resources in this series that offer progression and generate high levels of motivation. Author: Leigh McClelland, AST, Comberton Village College

Wir verstehen uns gut...manchmal (part 1)

Wir verstehen uns gut...manchmal (part 1)

This is a 2 hours lesson on family members and relationships from the new Stimmt GCSE 9-1. It starts with a very brief revision of family members, it includes relative pronouns in the nominative case and then practice with possessive adjectives in the nominative and accusative case (see grammar worksheets). Pupils will do a running dictation with relationship phrases (ich komme gut mit...aus/ ich kann sie nicht leiden...) and then solve a mystery. Final activity a timed speaking presentation on your family and friends + relationships. Pupils really understood the grammar and the vocab by the end of it.
