Les vacances - Higher ability KS3 Holidays topic

(1)
I have previously uploaded resources for the topic of Holidays which I used with low/mid ability Y8 groups. These can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/year-8-les-vacances-expo-2-module-5-updated-11067410 This year I find myself teaching top set Y8 and have had to rethink my approach. Here are my new resources (still in progress - will upload as I go - 6 weeks so far). The infinitives loop resource is not mine, but works really well here. Start the powerpoint, then get a pupil to cover their eyes and say "stop". You press "s" and everyone has to write a sentence using the verb it lands on (correctly conjugated in the perfect tense, of course). I have also been trying a new approach with homework, attempting to use flipped learning so that pupils arrive with the key basic knowledge they need so we can hit the ground running in the lesson. The following things have been researched at home, which is why they are not presented in the lessons: -vocab for transport -perfect tense of regular verbs -all Mrs Vandertramp verbs -vocab for accommodation

(9)
Differentiated reading tasks for a very mixed ability top/middle set Y10 French group. B/C text focuses on recognition and usage of key verbs in the perfect and imperfect tense.

Le week-end dernier - text on perfect tense
-myrtille-

Le week-end dernier - text on perfect tense

(7)
A simple reading task to introduce the perfect tense with Year 8. Pupils use their existing knowledge of verbs in the present tense/infinitive to identify the meaning of past tense verbs in the text, leading to a discussion of how the perfect tense is formed. Aimed at Y8 pupils, alongside Expo 2, Module 2 but could easily be used with weak Y9s too.

GCSE advanced structures for middle ability pupils

A couple of worksheets made for the very top end of a low ability Year 10 group. These pupils are currently producing C-grade quality work, in a class where most others are E/F/G so the worksheet is designed to extend their range of language whilst being something they can work on independently. One worksheet is on verb structures (avant de / apres avoir) and the other is on pronouns (je le trouve, je l'aime, etc.). The topic area is holidays/tourism/town as that is the current.

French perfect tense revision quiz

Pupils had covered perfect tense during module on hobbies/leisure in the previous term but had had a bit of a break from it. Used quiz to get them thinking about it again and prepare to apply it to the current topic. Could use to test how much they remember, or let them use their exercise books (opportunity for them to evaluate how good their note-taking is and if their books will help them revise).
