Worksheet 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.

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

Le week-end dernier - text on perfect tense

(10)
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 for a low ability Y7 group. Various puzzles to consolidate vocabulary for rooms of the house and furniture. Tasks increase in difficulty across a double-sided worksheet - wordsearch is accessible for the weakest students, cryptogram is a challenge for more able.

Places in town - vocab match up and exercises

For a very low ability FCSE French group, but would be suitable for lower year groups. Would be good for cover. Match up key vocab. Simple reading task (checking understanding of il y a and il n'y a pas de). Matching places to activities with 'on peut'. Font size is massive so you can print 2 sheets per page.

2 lessons for a top/middle set Year 10 class. Focus is on getting pupils to write good sentences to include in controlled assessment preparation, exposing more able pupils to advanced structures without making it too scary for those who struggle more. EDIT: Just to say that several of the slides come from other TES resources so many thanks if you spot your own work.

Gapfill activity to consolidate imperfect tense (with contrast with present tense). This version is the one with clues (first letter of some words) for less able, but can be deleted to make it more challenging. Part of healthy living topic - used whilst preparing for writing a problem page letter.

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

Dictionary skills, verb tables and conjugation

Dictionary skills, verb tables and conjugation

(6)
Lesson aimed at developing dictionary skills prior to writing Controlled Assessment. The aim is for pupils to know what type of words they are looking up, and to be able to use verb tables correctly to avoid handing in work peppered with infinitives. All examples are the Oxford School French Dictionary as this is what our pupils use in exams. The conjugation game on the last slide was sent to me by a colleague who found it on TES - you may need to search for it to get a clearer copy than my screeshot.

Reading activity - model for writing about sports

2 different versions of a diary entry about what sports you do on different days, as preparation for a writing assessment. 1 version is for pupils aiming for maximum Level 4 and is all in the present tense. The other includes the perfect tense and the immediate future for pupils working towards Level 5/6. Content (activities/days) is identical so it can all be marked together in class.
