Teaches pupils the basic vocab necessary to book a hotel room. Several activities including reading hotel adverts, paired and group speaking activities, link to a YouTube clip of a woman booking in at hotel reception and a GCSE reading exam question.
Some slides have links to activities - I have uploaded the linked activities in case the links don't work.
The past exam question has rubrics / questions in French to fit in with the new style GCSE exam. Copy also included with rubrics / questions in English.
For KS2 or 3 pupils. Competitive quiz activity. Practises knowledge of basic food vocab and sentences. Each shape is hyperlinked to a slide which contains the question. Click on the smiley face on the question slide to return to the first slide. For 10 marks pupils must recognise basic foods eg le poulet. For 20 points they have to recognise simple sentences eg. J'aime le fromage. For 30 points they have to recognise more challenging sentences eg. Mon père mange trop de frites. For 40 points they have to say something in French eg. My mum loves cake.
This is an adaptable resource.
Pupils each have a copy of both sheets - cut out the pictures, do the sums and stick the correct part of the picture on top of the sums to create an Easter picture which can then be coloured! Smartboard slide gives instructions for pupils to follow.
Pupils GO MAD for this and just want to play it every lesson!! Girls v. boys. One pupil nominates a box they know the answer to .. if they give a correct answer, click on the box and a number of points is revealed ....... or a MONKEY (In which case the team lose all their points) ....or 2 ARROWS (in which case the teams SWAP points). OMG mad for it!!!!!! Enjoy. (Can't take ALL the credit, a colleague gave me the original but I've added the questions for this version). :)
Pupils each have a card, which they do not show to anyone else. They must then walk around the room, find a partner and say the French sentence from their card. Their partner tells them what it means in English. If they are correct, the partner reads THEIR French sentence, and their partner must tell them what it means in English. If they both get the English correct, they swap cards and move on to find another partner and repeat. 'Ave it!! :) (They can stick the vocab in their books after the activity and write English meanings).
Just one slide...click on the 8 cinema tickets and a film theme will play. (Pictures are incidental ... they don't match with the music excerpts). Pupils have previously been taught film genres - they must note the correct genre as they listen to each theme. Could also be used to reinforce adjectives for describing films? Scroll to bottom of screen to find answers.
If you've used Linguascope to teach 10 items of French Christmas vocabulary then this is the perfect plenary! 10 pictures repeatedly flash in the box - a pupil taps the box to stop the pictures, and is then given a choice of 3 possible answers. If they tap the correct answer they of course receive the obligatory sweet! :)
If you don't subscribe to Linguascope this could be used as a research lesson, so teacher could tap the pictures, pupils look at the 3 words and use dictionaries to work out correct answer.
For older pupils, probably years 10 & 11. Includes a short starter poem to translate, a match up activity (how to say I LOVE YOU in 10 languages), a link to BBC Ma France resource (video clips of people dating), vocab for creating a Valentines card, a wordsearch and a Higher Level reading past exam question. Included : Powerpoint presentation, past exam question worksheet and wordsearch worksheet.
Encourages pupils to scan texts for familiar language and then try to work out new vocab before using a dictionary. Divide your class into groups of 4-6 pupils. Give each group 1 copy of the 5 mini texts about Google glasses. Give each pupil a copy of the worksheet. Pupils study one of the texts and answer any relevant questions before swapping the text with other pupils in their group. Keep the 5 texts circulating around the groups until pupils have answered all the questions. Every now and then play some timed music (approx. 2 minutes?) and only when they hear the music are they allowed to use a dictionary. When the music stops they have to close dictionaries!
A selected pupil gives coordinates in French. Teacher taps appropriate square, which will fly out revealing a blank square or a Christmas pud!! There are 7 to find. The puds are at the bottom of the screen so you need to move them onto the grid before playing. This means you can play more than once! Nice way to end last lesson before Xmas! Sweets needed as prizes of course!! A bag of chocolate coins works well and is cheap! 'Ave it!! :)
P.S. To re-set the game quickly, just click the blue forward arrow to take you onto next screen, then click the blue back arrow. This will return you to game screen with all squares back in place. You can retrieve the Xmas puds from the grid by using the blue curly UNDO arrow.
Pupils use a dictionary to find out new vocabulary. They then create a long line of dominoes, matching up all the words and pictures. Once they are familiar with the vocabulary they can play a few games of dominoes! (Worth discussing the rules first .. some of my pupils weren't sure how to play dominoes!!)
1st slide - starter activity - crack the code to work out the Xmas words
2nd slide has 4 baubles - click on each one in turn :
Bauble 1 = powerpoint teaching pupils about French Christmas
Bauble 2 = Who wants to be a millionaire game based on what they've learned
Bauble 3 = Match up activity and wordsearch using vocabulary they have learned
Bauble 4 - Just takes you to the next screen - click on the squares to reveal a picture connected with French Christmas. Prize for 1st pupil to explain what the picture is.
3rd slide has a plenary - pupil comes to front, moves a bauble to reveal a word they have met in the lesson - prize if they can say something about the word.
Powerpoints etc included separately in case the links don't work!!
First screen - click on the deaf fella icon and soundfile should play. If not, I've included the MP3 (thanks to Mary Glasgow!). Click on the white boxes and correct answers will be revealed. transcript on screen 2.
Pupils put the cards in the right order to create an interview with Peter Capaldi. Accompanying worksheet reinforces their knowledge of key phrases prior to producing a description of a celebrity. Credit to a colleague on another website for the original idea, which I have adapted here. ‘Ave it!! :)
Pupils are given a copy of the vocab list on last slide of powerpoint.
They are then shown a series of images with a choice of 3 emotions and asked to show red/amber/green card to show which emotion they think is shown in the images. (Our pupils' planners have RAG pages - they could use different coloured pens / objects instead?)
Later slides offer no choice of emotions, but encourage pupils to write an emotion on a whiteboard instead.
Depending on ability of class pupils could be encouraged to write whole sentences rather than single words.
Pupils work in pairs analysing one of two texts. Dictionaries are only allowed when they hear the countdown music so mostly they have to use their own skills / knowledge. After 20 minutes, 20 phrases from the 2 texts appear on the board in English, one at a time (powerpoint is timed). Pupils must scan the text they have worked on to find the equivalent in French. Full instructions on 1st powerpoint slide. Involves an element of challenge/competition and of course the winners MUST get a prize!!! :) 'Ave it!!!
