Inspiring Quotes for French students

Inspiring Quotes for French students

This is a compilation of 25 quotes about the function and value of language learning. One PPT is in French, the other one has the translation in English. These inspiring quote helps students ( and teachers!) to see other reasons for foreign language, apart from getting a GCSE or A Level grade! This is a great activity to do on Language Day. Also to use possibly for the Language Day, are a PPT quiz for this year's Language Day, a PPT presentation on the EU ( with UK still in it!) in French, and another one on the Geaography of Europe

Les animaux - le coq: symbol

Les animaux - le coq: symbol

This is a great way to introduce a bit of the French culture (as well as the numeracy component) when teaching about animals / animal sounds. You could ask students to read the text then to fill in the blank/write their own description on the timeline sheet. This is just an activity I have assembled but the way you want to teach it is up to you. I personally like to introduce the animal sounds then focus on the use of "cocorico" and then its origin.

PRIMARY FRENCH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (2)

PRIMARY FRENCH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (2)

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING FRANCE! FRENCH FASCINATING FACTS TASK CARDS really do help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional, teacher-led ’information about France’ lessons. Children can develop their knowledge of FRANCE - and through guided whole-group discussion - their home/host country too, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. There is a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling, and is a great way of aligning language learning with developing literacy skills in English. This resource comprises the following: 20 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following topic groups: ART & ARTISTS, FAMOUS PEOPLE, HISTORY, COUNTRY and LANGUAGE. There are four cards per A4 sheet, making them the perfect size for young learners. The language on each of the cards ranges from fairly basic to more advanced, which challenges and enhances children’s English skills. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL 1 - there are 2 options: either 2 or 4 fact recording boxes per A4 page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes. Encourage children to be as accurate as possible with their spelling and punctuation, to pay particular attention to the spelling and accents of the FRENCH words that are included, and of course to make sure they are recording the facts in their best handwriting. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL 2 - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. There is a more open-ended task: responding to the question “What did you learn?”. This requires children to read their fact card, process the information, and then recreate it in their own words, describing the fact in the context of what they have learned. WHOLE-GROUP PRESENTATION/DISCUSSION ACTIVITY, with every fact included in the presentation resource - I’ve found this a really useful means of encouraging and stimulating classroom discussion. Children can reflect on what they may already know about FRANCE, and share it with their peers. Use the facts themselves to prompt discussion about the home/host country, and encourage children to look for lateral information, such as the existence of the Nobel Prize, what its purpose is, and how people win it. SETS 1 & 2 with 40 facts which also include ART & ARTISTS, HISTORY and FAMOUS PEOPLE are also available as a combined pack at the special price of £5.00: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/primary-french-40-facts-task-cards-recording-sheets-discussion-activity-11700399 This pack comprises 5 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. MERCI BEAUCOUP ET BON VOYAGE!

12 French Quizzes for Different Levels

12 French Quizzes for Different Levels

This is a collection of 14 quizzes on France and French language for KS 3-5 students, depending on the resource. Most of them are in French but a few for KS3 are in English. The length varies between 10 and 30mn . Most of theses quizzes are interactive PPT so they can be displayed on whiteboard and are fully editable. The title indicates the targeted audience. I use these quizzes either at the end of term or for starters/plenaries with great effect. Students really enjoy them as it's covering a range of cultural topics about France ( medias, geography, history, famous people) and it's a refreshing change from the linguistic side of their French studies. Enjoy!

Bastille Day Lesson

Bastille Day Lesson

A lesson all about Bastille Day including a range of activities. It is presented in English, so it is suitable for low-ability or younger pupils. It could also be used during form time for cultural awareness. Includes: -Presentation of facts with questions mixed in to check understanding (these could be answered on mini-whiteboards). -Listen to the Marseillaise and put the French lyrics into the right order (first verse, chorus and second verse). Then match to the English translations (flashcards are included, plus link to anthem.) -Two truths and one lie: pupils must decide which statement about France is false/myth (again mini-whiteboards would be good for this!) -Word race: use dictionaries to find translations for all the vocabulary.
