Updated 25/3 - More lessons for Vert added. Resources for the first few lessons on this module with 2 different classes. Covers similar ground but more quickly for Rouge (they have fewer lessons) and with tenses. References to reading tasks may be other files I have uploaded here. I have taken a few slides (mostly typed up textbook resources) from other resources found on TES so thanks if that was you!

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.

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.

I will add each week's resources as I get to them. -Week 1 - present tense, advanced negatives, pronouns y and en. -Week 2 - food groups, nutrition, describing different foods (EXT: bien que + subjunctive). (JUST ADDED: Guess the food reading which I had missed off before.) -Week 3 - sports and exercise - using jouer and faire in a range of tenses (+ time phrases) -Week 4 - imperfect tense. How your lifestyle differed in the past - Week 4b - Mauvaises habitudes. Opinions of smoking and alcohol. -Week 5 - Giving advice for a healthy lifestyle (with il faut, on doit, il est important de) (EXT: il faut que + subjunctive) -Week 6 - Your future plans for a healthy lifestyle I have added a checklist for pupils to self assess when preparing their draft (C grade and A grade version). The documents entitled "Revision" are helpsheets for pupils to refer to when producing written work.
Short translation tasks with mark scheme

Short translation tasks with mark scheme

(25)
Practice translation activities in the style of the new GCSE. Worksheet includes a short version of the AQA mark scheme. I go through the correct translation on the board then get pupils to make corrections and peer assess before I mark their work. Using these every 2-3 weeks as a 10-15 minute activity, to assess pupils regularly and keep exam skills ticking over, rather than doing a massive exam at the end of each topic.
