Describing your school

Describing your school

KS3 or KS4 booklet covering the topic of school to accompany the Logo 4 textbook - has a front vocabulary page and then multiple exercises practicing the vocabulary. Only reading and writing skills are covered and so it can be set easily as a cover work or homework task - or just when you need a break from all-singing, all dancing. I'm not a German specialist so please let me know if you spot any mistakes. Hope it's helpful.

KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

KS3/4 German: Environment/Umwelt in 3 tenses (Present, Future, Perfect)

A couple of help sheets and activities on the topic of the environment which revise the use of three different tenses. Based on Echo 3 Rot K4E4 Umweltschutz (pp.66-67).Included are:- helpsheet of sentence builders on present tense (ich-form);- helpsheet of sentence builders in three tenses, plus hints on how to use and extend them (NB the same verbs are used in all three tenses) (all in wir-form);- set of sentences to translate into German (differentiation is in the 'level' on which students attempt the task - details on sheet.I devised this for my year 9 beginners' class. They found it tricky - I think the challenge would be there for learners who have more years of German behind them.

Jeopardy/Blitz Game Tenses & GCSE/SG Topics Review - German

Jeopardy/Blitz Game Tenses & GCSE/SG Topics Review - German

I got the template from another teaching website - it can be altered as needed. Macros must be enabled. Click on a box on the first page and you are transported to a page with an English sentence which pupils must translate into German. The more points, the harder the sentence. Click again and the answer appears. Click the return box and you return to the front page, where the original box will disappear to reveal a piece of the picture in the background. Record the points. I find having mixed ability groups all writing the answers on mini-whiteboards is good with this. Note: to change the picture in the background, move one box aside, right click on the picture, click Order and Move to front. Then delete it and put in your new picture, resize it, right click on it - Order - Send to back. Put the box you moved back in place.

Please feel free to download and adapt these SoW for the new Edexcel GCSE (Sept 09). The "TSL" column is an internal thing at my school and can be edited etc. I have done a dated week-by-week timetable. Hope these help. I'm still in the process of polishing them up but they are fine in this good-as-dammit version.

ideas for French and German songs you can use in class

ideas for French and German songs you can use in class

I copied and pasted everyone’s ideas from three discussion threads on which songs we can use to try to inspire kids. It’s a numbered list which will hopefully make it easier to go down bit by bit, investigating and adding to our repertoire. Thank you to all the great people who contributed, whose ideas are here but whose names aren’t- please don’t take offence at this- just accept a massive thank you from me and everyone else who is inspired by you.
