French 'All about me' Resource Pack- face and body parts

French 'All about me' Resource Pack- face and body parts

I have attached some presentations to help children learn the vocab needed for an 'All about me' topic in French. They focus on facial features and body part names, as well as key phrases they will need to describe themselves or others. Facial features are taught with the Guess Who? game- play in partners to describe one of the characters, or play whole class on IWB! Prompt sheets with easy to find vocab for facial features, size, hair colour, eye colour, hair length etc. Body parts taught in a similar way but with aliens! Presentation with lots of colourful, varied aliens with different numbers of arms, legs etc. to practice naming and describing. Teaches how to say phrases such as 'She/he has...5 legs' etc and prompt sheet to print for pairs to play Guess Who? naming the aliens! Again, can be played whole class or in partners- used as whole lesson or recap starter activity. My Year 4 class loved playing these games and it really helped to teach the vocab in full phrases, rather than learning the individual words! I hope this will be useful to you :)

French – Describing People – Physical Descriptions & Characteristics.

French – Describing People – Physical Descriptions & Characteristics.

This is a set of resources to introduce describing others and oneself. There is a lengthy PowerPoint (79 slides) that goes through describing height, build, hair and eyes with reinforcement activities, match up activities, gap fills, translations and a reading comprehension. It then goes on to introduce 16 characteristics with listening activities, match ups, snake sentences and reading comprehensions. The final activity is the creation of a wanted poster for students to complete. There is an 8-page worksheet that accompanies the PowerPoint. These resources are enough for several lessons and start for the introduction through to pupils confidently using all of the new language, creating whole descriptions of themselves and others.
