German Escape Room for GCSE food and hobbies

German Escape Room for GCSE food and hobbies

A lesson that your students will not forget quickly! A spy themed escape room activity in which students need to solve German language related puzzles to get a code to jump from one website to the next in search of the German spy . Ideal as vocab and grammar revision for year 10 or 11 (based on GCSE Stimmt but compatible with other books). Will keep them focused even in the last lesson before the holidays! It focuses on vocab and research on German food but includes vocab from the topics school and hobbies, and practises word order and past participles. There is a “digital only” version and a" digital+paper" version. The “digital+paper” version is more fun because it involves the game website and paper puzzles that make the activities more “real”, but requires quite a bit of preparation by the teacher. The “digital only” version only requires one printout can be done last minute. The resource includes: Link to “Findet den Spion!” website and introduction video. Teacher instruction, including how to put together the puzzle items Teacher answers Puzzles to print out/Files for digital versions

MFL Writing and Speaking Feedback Grid

MFL Writing and Speaking Feedback Grid

I have created this Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 writing and speaking marking feedback grid for the new AQA 9-1 GCSE and use it with general or assessed pieces of French, German and Spanish work. The grid is linked to a progress ladder that we use in school, which shows the elements students are required to include to progress from grades 1-9 in the two skills in these subjects. My school has been using it since October and I have found that it has really sped up my marking time. I circle elements that students haven’t included and they must refer back to it before completing their next piece of written or spoken work. I also insist that my students learn these elements by heart in order and they have done this, which is definitely helping with an improvement in grades. Hopefully it’s useful to you all as well!
