Translation Race - KS4 Careers

Translation Race - KS4 Careers

This activity can be used for either French or Spanish at KS4. Students are given 5 sentences in English on the topic of careers to translate into the target language in increasing difficulty. Vocabulary has been taken from AQA lists. They must work in groups or pairs to translate sentences one at a time getting them checked by you and correcting as quickly as possible. Full instructions are included in the document. This activity is fantastic for developing students writing and proof reading skills and for addressing common mistakes in an engaging fashion. Could be extended by asking students to pick a sentence and extending it as far as they can. Makes a good plenary task.

Vente Aux Enchères - Jobs and Future Plans

Vente Aux Enchères - Jobs and Future Plans

In this activity students work in groups to bid on correct sentences as if in an auction. The aim is to win the most correct sentences but if they lose their money they can win some back by correcting an incorrect sentence. This activity is designed for year 9 and takes vocabulary from Studio 3 module 3 on the topic of jobs and future plans however it covers a lot of vocabulary used at GCSE for the same topic. There are 20 sentences in this activity. There is a worksheet for students to use to decide which sentences they want to bid on, a powerpoint with each sentence on individual slides to use while going through the bidding process and the answers are at the bottom of the document. Instructions are on both worksheet and powerpoint. An extension task could be to translate the sentences, this could be conducted as a race. A great activity for revision of the topic and for improving students written accuracy.

Studio AQA GCSE 2017_Mon boulot dans le tourisme_Module 7_Lesson 4

Studio AQA GCSE 2017_Mon boulot dans le tourisme_Module 7_Lesson 4

This lesson starter handout (1xA4) has been designed for my second year GCSE students (Year 11) starting in Sept 2017. I have used these sheets in year 10 and they have been very helpful for students. As we are going through the book (Studio AQA), I am creating these documents for them to refer to throughout the year (year 10-year 11). Please note that if there is a mention of 'Check green grammar lesson', it is because I give them separate grammar sheets on a green paper. This text box is easy to delete if you don't want it. Make sure you click on the 'enable editing' box at the top of the document after downloading it.
