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. :)

Word Loops for GCSE Spanish - AQA Specification Vocab
-myrtille--myrtille-

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.

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 Pocket money, chores, jobs Going out in town 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.
