Friends, Family and Relationships Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Friends, Family and Relationships 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 FRIENDS, FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS.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.

Conditional Tense in German (context of ideal partner)

Conditional Tense in German (context of ideal partner)

Formulation and use of conditional verb forms. Authentic text about ideal partner (written by our assistant teacher from Cologne). Emphasises use of connectives to build complex sentences. Can be used in a simple way for foundation pupils concentrating on simple sentences with a range of adjectives to describe people or in a more challenging way for more able students. Lots of opportunity for reading, writing and speaking.

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.

Memory and Recall tasks for GCSE German

Memory and Recall tasks for GCSE German

A booklet of (homework?) tasks which students can use once the unit of work is complete to help them revisit vocabulary and phrases to help keep them fresh. The tasks could be given straight after completion of a unit of work or for example at the start of Year 11 to review work covered in Year 10. This unit is based on the me, my friends and family unit of work which my students study in Year 10. I will give these tasks to them over the next 6 weeks as revision home works and then reissue the booklet in Year 11 for further revision. The tasks are best printed out as an A5 stapled booklet.

Stimmt GCSE Murder Mystery – Menschliche Beziehungen (Chapter 3)

Stimmt GCSE Murder Mystery – Menschliche Beziehungen (Chapter 3)

Watch the trailer for free here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/trailer-for-german-murder-mystery-11464778Murder Mystery to run alongside Stimmt AQA GCSE Higher/Foundation Chapter 3 “Menschliche Beziehungen”, (some of the tasks would have to be adapted for Stimmt Edexcel.) Turn a whole chapter into a crime story! This project is intended to complement/ replace exercises from the text book and will link the pages together into one thrilling crime story. Students will want to find out ‘whodunit’, especially if there is a prize for the best detective! It should not take up much more time than using the book on its own as some tasks can replace text book tasks and get students to revise the text book vocabulary in a different context. Includes:• puzzle, reading, writing, listening, speaking, translation and role play tasks• film trailer for the project, powerpoint (more than 60 slides) and work booklet (12 pages)• teacher guidance (hidden in the ppt, can be seen in edit mode) • activity overview• answers to all tasks

Mini-mock writing tasks for New German GCSE

Mini-mock writing tasks for New German GCSE

A resource which will familiarise students with the requirements of the writing paper for GCSE German (AQA). The tasks are not official AQA tasks but created along the lines of what students might reasonably expect to appear on an exam. The mini mock is designed primarily for Year 9 or 10 students not yet expert in the grammar and vocabulary of the GCSE and there are several activities which might support them along the way. There is also opportunity to use a student friendly mark scheme (the grading is very roughly worked out but gives a general indication of how students might be doing in terms of grades). These tasks work well as homeworks - especially the redrafts - I will produce more on different topics as we progress through the new GCSE course - (if people would like them). Could easily be adapted for other languages by changing the tasks.
