Year 9 French Knowledge Organisers

Year 9 French Knowledge Organisers

(0)
Knowledge Organisers for my Y9 curriculum, including: Revision and enhancement of Y7 basics (self, appearance, personality, family) in the guise of a Loft Story (Big Brother) themed project. Media, TV, film, leisure activities. Healthy Living Customs and Festivals Education and Future Career Plans The KOs are divided into Productive Language (what we teach students to say and write) and Receptive Language (mostly taken from the AQA specification list) which they need to understand for Reading and Listening but don’t necessarily need to use in their own work. The KOs can be used to structure lesson planning, as a sentence builder or scaffold for students during written/spoken tasks, and for setting homework (typically half a column per week for vocab tests). I hope you find these useful. Check out my other resources if you did. :)

Au restaurant - past tense reading

(13)
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. A* version assumes pupils are already confident with the 2 tenses and introduces a range of advanced structures which they can use to develop their work.
Shrove Tuesday lesson - Les crepes

Shrove Tuesday lesson - Les crepes

(10)
For Year 8 low ability group on pancake day. Links in with current module (just starting food and drink - Expo 2, Module 4) but includes some cultural aspects on la Chandeleur and Mardi gras. Main idea for resource (pictures and vocab) taken from another TES resource (http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/Les-cr-and-234-pes-6071144/) but I have added to it to keep my class busy for a whole lesson.

Les vetements worksheet cover lesson clothing clothes

(11)
Worksheet on the topic of clothing designed for low ability Y8 groups to get on with independently during speaking assessment. Designed for a group who struggled to complete Linguascope sheets and Gianfranco Conti sheets in a cover lesson so needed something simpler.
Personality adjectives - Y7

Personality adjectives - Y7

(1)
Lesson to introduce personality adjectives with Y7 (they've already done loads of work on agreements for colours and physical description, so not that much time spent on it here). Goes with Expo 1 and does refer to reading and listening activities from it, but hopefully some of the slides will be useful even if you don&'t use this textbook.

Le petit dejeuner - Reading

(10)
Reading task based on Expo 2 Vert p62 but extended (I have added an extra text and broken down the activities more). This is for a low ability group so begins with the basics - recognising food words they have done and underlining them. Then they have to identify which person mentions which foods, and there are some extension questions for the more able in the group to move onto.

Spanish Induction / first lesson / introduction

A lesson I have prepared for induction with Y6.

Year 8 - Les vacances (Expo 2, Module 5) - UPDATED

(36)
Approximately 8-week unit of work on the topic of holidays produced/adapted for Year 8 Set 3. Focus on recognition and use of 3 tenses. Leads up to an unseen writing assessment task (aiming to prepare pupils more for the requirements of the new GCSE as opposed to memorising for controlled assessment). Some powerpoints are 1 lesson, some are 2 or 3. A few slides are taken from other TES resources so many thanks if you recognise your work.

2 lessons for a top set Y8 class doing Spanish once per week alongside French. Using mas...que, menos... que and tan... como. Some slides found on TES and adapted/added to my own resources, so not entirely my own.

EDIT 17/09/17 - Updated version of these resources and resources for higher ability can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/les-vacances-higher-ability-ks3-holidays-topic-11272132 and here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/year-8-les-vacances-expo-2-module-5-updated-11067410 (for some reason this old one seems more popular but I think people just aren't finding the newer ones). EDIT 24/06/14 - Added some more lessons to Powerpoint and a couple more worksheets. For Year 8 groups on Expo 2 Module 5. First couple of lessons - countries, nationalities, saying where you usually go and where you went last year. Puzzle sheet and link to consolidate on a Friday afternoon. More lessons will be added as I go along.
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.
