Les vacances - Higher ability KS3 Holidays topic

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

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

Le week-end dernier - text on perfect tense

(8)
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.

Cover lesson worksheet for a low ability Year 8 class. A series of tasks to work through to build up from learning the vocab to using it in a sentence. Not very exciting, but thought it might save someone a bit of time.

French perfect tense revision quiz

French perfect tense revision quiz

(2)
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).
Word Loops for GCSE Spanish - AQA Specification Vocab

Word Loops for GCSE Spanish - AQA Specification Vocab

(0)
These word loops are intended for retrieval practice of vocabulary from the AQA GCSE Specification. They can be used in class for self-quizzing in the following ways: -Have the loop running as the class comes into the room. Students aim to shout out the English meaning of each word before it appears on the board. -Paired competition - in pairs, aim to be quicker than their partner to say the answer. Give a tally to whoever answers correctly each time. -Self-quiz memory challenge - students silently try to recall the English meaning of each word before it appears. If they are correct, give themselves a tally point. Total up at the end. Then repeat and aim for a new personal best. My aim is to have these produced for all units and drop them into lessons throughout the year so students are reminded of language from previous topics.

Year 8 French Knowledge Organisers

(0)
Printable knowledge organisers for KS3 French. Can be used as a basis for SoW (ie: what content to cover), as a scaffold in lessons, and for independent learning (self-quizzing for homework). Productive KOs include verb phrases and key vocabulary that has been selected because it is transferable or is easy to say/spell in test conditions. Receptive KOs are at word level and contain key language taken from the AQA specification, aimed at exposing pupils to a wider range of this from KS3. Topics covered (so far) are: Food and drink Leisure/free time activities Holidays There are also KOs on key verbs in 3 tenses, and on quality language/opinions to be used across all topics. Word loops are included for class retrieval practice of Food and Drink topic. Pupils aim to recall the translation of a word before the answers appear on the screen. I will add additional materials to this resource throughout the year as there are 2 modules I have not yet produced KOs for.
