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

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.

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.
