French Au College - writing in coloured chunks

French Au College - writing in coloured chunks

French. A writing frame to scaffold pupils' work on the topic of Mon College (My School). Pupils use the scaffold to write extended sentences. Provide them with red, green, blue and black pens to write the different chunks in different colours. Red for verb + infinitive, green for connectives, blue for opinions. This makes writing more fun and kinaesthetic. It also means pupils take care over their writing. Pupils can see immediately how each chunk is used in a sentence. Pupils can immediately see when they are over using or under using one element. The worksheet is provided in Word so you can choose to remove the English for pupils who don't need it. Suitable for KS3 or KS4 foundation tier.

School subjects

School subjects

This resource is designed for beginners in French, junior school and year 7 pupils. It presents the question “Do you like?” and the school subjects with both positive and negative answers. Good for practicing language and then leading to more independent practice, role-play and writing. Students could create their own poster or flash card games. I have included a power point version for teachers or supervisors who don't know French as it has the English translation of the slide in the notes.

French Writing Journal

French Writing Journal

Bulletin Journals are a creative and fun way to engage students in writing. Taking inspiration from Pinterest, I put together these four sheets which cover topics such as : Food/drink, chores, school subjects, daily routine, holidays (past and future) then a more creative sheet where students fill their 'Happiness Box' (with nouns) and list the things they would like to learn (using verbs). I plan to use this as a Writing Assessment. There is scope for all levels of ability in this task. The pages can be used individually or as a booklet. I plan to use the 'Ma Vie' sheet as the 1st page and the ' Boîte à Bonheur' sheet as the back page with the other two sheets in the middle. I have now added the assessment sheet to accompany the journal.

GCSE French My School. Developing Spontaneous Speaking.

GCSE French My School. Developing Spontaneous Speaking.

A speaking activity for GCSE French to practise developing answers and speaking spontaneously. Topic "My School" One worksheet (best expanded and printed on A3) supports pupils in giving extended and complex answers. Get pupils to practise with a series of partners, reducing their dependence on the sheet as the activity progresses. The other sheet gives models of the kind of answers pupils can give. All the language for these answers is on the spontaneous speaking sheet. Rather than first going through and giving pupils the English for the sheet, give them both sheets at once and they will find the words they need for themselves. The language and skills modeled here can be transferred to other topics.
