Healthy Living Writing/ Speaking practice GCSE

Healthy Living 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 HEALTHY LIVING.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.

CREATE AN INSTANT INTRODUCTION TO FRUITS AND VEGETABLES IN GERMAN IN YOUR CLASSROOM!This combined 55 posters pack of FRUIT AND VEGETABLES POSTERS includes 25 A4 fruit posters and 30 vegetables A4 posters featuring a range of scrumptious fruits and vegetables in GERMAN. Together, they create a fabulous GERMAN feel and look to your learning environment. The posters work well as a 'general' display, or for when you are focusing on fruits, vegetables, food or healthy eating in your GERMAN lessons. They're really useful as a visual prompt for gender, definite article and the capitalization of nouns too. It doesn't matter if some of the fruits and vegetables don't feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the posters give learners daily opportunities to engage with the written GERMAN word, to develop their recognition and recall of individual words and cognates, and to begin to link spelling with sound in GERMAN. The fruits and vegetables are available as separate resources if you prefer, priced at £2.00 and £2.25. The fruits and vegetables featured are:- green apple- red apple- avocado- banana- blackberry- blueberry- cherries- coconut- grapefruit- green grapes- purple grapes- kiwi- lemon- lime- nectarine- olive- orange- peach- pear- pineapple- pumpkin- raspberry- strawberry- watermelon- asparagus- aubergine/eggplant - beans- beetroot- broccoli- cabbage- carrot- cauliflower- celery- chick peas- red chilli- corn- cucumber- garlic- leek- lettuce- mushrooms- onions- peas- green pepper- red pepper- yellow pepper- potatoes- sweet potatoes- spinach- sprouts - tomato- zucchiniIf you're working with younger learners, you might like to look at my GERMAN FRUITS AND VEGETABLES COLOUR, LABEL AND LEARN series, which feature a range of the same fruits and vegetables/images, and include line versions to colour, decorate and label - and proudly show next to the display posters.The resource consists of two non-editable files - I've added a selection of preview images to give you an idea of what the resource looks like as a whole.
