German Escape room Der Stundenplan (timetable and subjects)

German Escape room Der Stundenplan (timetable and subjects)

A lesson that your students will not forget quickly! A timetable themed escape room activity in which students need to do German language related puzzles to get a find all the codes to help Johann stay out of trouble at school . Ideal as vocab revision for the first year of German. Will keep them focused even in the last lesson before the holidays! It includes vocab from the topics school subjects and opinions, numbers, colours, telling the time, hobbies (online activities). There is a “digital only” version and a" mixed media" (digital+paper) version. The “mixed media” version is more fun because it involves the game website and real life puzzles ( jigsaws, code wheels and string activities) that make the activities more “real”, but requires quite a bit of preparation by the teacher. The “digital” version only requires one print out and can be done last minute. The resource includes: Link to "Der Stundenplan” website Teacher instruction, including how to put together the puzzle items and example pictures Teacher answers Powerpoint with game introduction Puzzles to print out/Files for digital versions

Year 7 German - School subjects

Year 7 German - School subjects

At least a week’s worth of work geared to building students’ confidence in asking and answering questions about school subjects. The questions and answers have been inspired by Pearson’s KS3 and KS4 assessments along with AQA’s specimen material. We’ve been trialling a new approach following student voice interviews. We are now introducing students to new language through a mixture of reading, listening and translation into English before moving on to speaking. Since taking this approach, we’ve seen students’ willingness to speak shoot up, as have their speaking grades. A pleasant surprise! This PowerPoint and workbook set is good to go. The notes pages on the first slide of the PowerPoint provide information about resources along with an overview of the lesson. Subsequent slides contain additional tips. The PowerPoint and ‘8 questions-8 opinions’ workbook are designed to be used together in the lesson, whereas the ‘Key questions for this chapter’ workbook is for homework. As students study a unit in class, they complete that section at home.

6 Week Scheme of Learning and resources for KS4 My School Life

6 Week Scheme of Learning and resources for KS4 My School Life

This is a 6 week scheme specifically designed for teachers using the new Stimmt! for AQA coursebook at Key Stage 4. The tasks require teachers to have access to the audio files, students coursebook and ideally the assessment pack. Please be aware of this before you pay any money for it! The scheme I have written is very detailed, including descriptors for good and outstanding progress outcomes for low, mid and high ability students as well as clear built-in opportunities for differentiation. It then offers lesson by lesson activities, including starters, development and plenary tasks. I wrote these schemes when we changed our coursebook once the GCSE was revised. The accompanying PPT is referred to throughout the scheme of learning by slide number and I have been through to cross-reference and check that everything is in the right order (I tend to swap slides around when I’m teaching so that took a while!) Alongside the PPT and the scheme are 3 other resources - a vocab reference sheet based on the new 8668 AQA GCSE spec, a differentiated translation activity which could be used for homework, and the writing assessment which appears towards the end of the planning. I am leaving teaching in Summer after 24 years and felt very sad that the resources and schemes I had developed would never be used, so have decided to gradually put them all on here. Takes forever but if it helps someone and gets used, I’d be happy.

Die Schule - end of topic sheet

Die Schule - end of topic sheet

Mixed activity sheet on school in German, includes school subjects, uniform clothes. There’s also numeracy in here - a work out the number activity, understand the times and put them on the clock faces and an ordinals exercise. Ideal as either end of topic homework or classwork. I tend to use these when my students are doing their speaking assessment - they get it once they’ve been tested to keep them occupied while I assess the others.
