GCSE role-plays - Me, my family and friends

GCSE role-plays - Me, my family and friends

A free sample of an upcoming workbook from katelanguages.co.uk! Using the specification papers, I have created role-plays for the theme of Me, my family and friends, for foundation and higher tiers. For each tier, there is a student card, a teacher's card and possible answers (a 'script' of the role-play in full). Please have a look and leave feedback so I can adapt the rest of the workbook to what is useful to teachers and students alike!

Great German Insults (classroom-friendly) Aimed at Y9

Great German Insults (classroom-friendly) Aimed at Y9

Some non-rude German insults aimed at a small group of year 9s. Aim of making the language seem a bit more fun. This is supposed to be a bit of funny lesson, and it's all fairly light-hearted. Ways to use resource: 1) Give out copy of the sheets and go through pronunciation of each one. Make sure pupils know where the stress lies - call and repeat. Included in one example is a video from Friends to demonstrate Joey's cute simpleness. Stop it after 20 seconds, as that gets the point across. 2) Sheet three is to see if they can correctly identify the appropriate insult for the people listed :D 3) If you felt it was appropriate (though I think you'd only do this with certain classes), you could get them to write an insult for a friend - be careful though in case some pupils are not high attainers, as they might take it to heart if they get called an "Evolutionsbremse") This will take roughly 20-30 minutes.

Speaking cards - Hobbys & Relationships

Speaking cards - Hobbys & Relationships

To promote spontaneous speaking, I have trialed pair-work questioning with my students. I copy the attached file onto different coloured card and then cut out. I put them into piles face down. The idea is for students to work in pairs, taking in turn to take a card from the pile and ask their partner the question on it. This is good for comprehension practice and also allowing students to build their confidence when speaking.
