French Basics KS2 / KS3

French Basics KS2 / KS3

Massive value and many hours of time-saving, engaging resources for Key Stage 2, early KS3 and equivalents. There are around 70 resources across these 20 different packs - many of the packs contain multiple resources. Lots also include additional differentiated versions or multiple gameboards, card sets etc. This should take the stress out of resourcing lessons and you'll be able to come back to them year after year. There's plenty to keep things fresh when revisiting topics and for homework tasks too. These resources will be ideal for introducing or consolidating the topics below: Greetings - Hello, Goodbye etc (Les salutations / Bonjour / Au revoir) Introductions - How are you? / What's your name? / How old are you? / Where do you live? (Je me presente - Ca va? / Comment tu t'appelles? / Quel age as-tu? Ou habites-tu?) Numbers inc. French Mental Maths (Les nombres / les numeros) Calendar - Days, Months, Dates (Le Calendrier - Les jours, les mois, Quelle est la date?) Classroom Objects (Les objets de la classe / Dans ma trousse) Weather (La meteo / Quel temps fait-il?) Colours (Les couleurs) There are substantial PowerPoint lesson presentations for all 6 areas plus a variety of activities for each, including printable games, activities, worksheets, crossword puzzles and word searches. There are also revision resources for consolidation of all 6 topics - a large (100+ clues) crossword puzzle for completion by groups and a differentiated 5-board snakes and ladders game. This bundle offers the biggest saving but for maximum flexibility to suit different teachers I have put these resources together in a variety of smaller bundles, some of which are listed below. All resources are also available individually. For more information on them, please click through to them.

Creative Writing Story Prompts

Creative Writing Story Prompts

FREE for new buyers – Enter code OUTSTANDINGOCT at checkout. One of my most popular resources: 20 dyslexia-friendly creative writing prompt cards. Although these were originally designed for reluctant writers and those with additional support needs (ASN / SEN) in Key Stage 2 (KS2), they can be used across a range of abilities to spark imaginative stories. Each A4 card features a photo / picture stimulus, a starter sentence or part-sentence to help launch children into their fiction writing, some prompt questions to get ideas going, a wordbank and some suggested openers to add variety to their writing. A box at the bottom reminds pupils to read their work aloud, check for full stops and capital letters and common spellings. These story generator cards contain a range of subjects and genres including sport, mystery, humour, fantasy and historical and should appeal to boys and girls alike. The resource has been designed to offer maximum support for dyslexic learners and others with similar barriers to learning. The Verdana font and spacing used are both dyslexia-friendly and the pastel background colours are designed to reduce glare. The version with the background colours removed could be used if printing on pastel paper or card. Although they could be used to support the writing of a full story, the cards would work well as a regular tool to support struggling writers in one-to-one or small group sessions, where pupils write just a few sentences inspired by the prompts, without worrying about completing a story. There's plenty of variety across the 20 cards so children could choose those that appeal to them. I hope these cards save you some time and help your learners experience success in writing. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks. You can get them in a good value bundle alongside some of my other popular Literacy / English resources (see below). You might be interested in these fun resources for developing children's variety of sentence structures and vocabulary: Improving Sentences (Uplevelling Sentences Trails) Super Sentences (Complex Sentence Writing Activity) Sensational Sentences (Complex Sentence Writing Activity) For engaging, time-saving printables and presentations to help plan Primary Literacy, Maths and French lessons, visit FullShelf Resources

Mental Maths BUNDLE Year 5 / 6

Mental Maths BUNDLE Year 5 / 6

FREE for new buyers – Enter code OUTSTANDINGOCT at checkout. A bundle of 15 PowerPoint Speed Tests, 216 Self-Check Cards and 8 Cross Number Puzzles, originally designed for Upper KS2 – Year 5 and Year 6 (P6 and P7 and other equivalents). These mental arithmetic resources might also suit some early KS3 classes for revision and consolidation. They could be used as part of SATs preparation too. Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Doubling & Halving, Fractions, Decimals, Percentages, Negative Numbers, Place Value, Money, Area, Perimeter, Time, Length and Angles. As the PowerPoints and Self-Check cards include money questions in UK currency, I have also included versions for countries that use dollars and cents. Differentiation: I have called this Set A rather than used any other identifier to help facilitate the use of Set B (originally designed for Lower Key Stage 2) with lower ability children within the same class without children being aware of the age level of the questions. Set B resources are also available individually or as a bundle: Mental Maths Bundle Year 4 / Year 3 POWERPOINT SPEED TESTS 15 informal tests split across 3 PowerPoints, designed to be shown on the whiteboard with children recording answers in jotters or on paper. One question to a slide will allow children to focus for a few seconds before the next one comes up. The question slides are plain and uncluttered so as to minimise distractions. Run the PowerPoint presentation on a timer or click it on yourself, perhaps allowing a little longer for more challenging questions. Each test features 20 questions involving a variety of mathematical skills and knowledge. At the end of each test, the same 20 slides are repeated, this time with the answer added clearly. Children can then mark their own or a partner's work to reduce your workload. If short of time, you can whizz through the answers but the idea of each answer appearing with its question like this is that it allows for important discussions about strategies. SELF-CHECK CARDS A flexible resource that can be incorporated into many mental maths games and activities within the classroom, especially oral starters. Laminate and use again and again as starter and early finisher tasks. There are twelve calculations on each A4 sheet. Leave them as 18 A4 sheets or cut each of the question cards separately to create 216 cards. There are versions both with and without the answers printed below the questions. The with-answers versions could be used by pupils questioning each other while the version without the answers could be used by individuals testing themselves. A separate answer card is included, which individuals could consult. CROSSNUMBER PUZZLES A fun resource for early finisher tasks, mental starters, homework etc. They could be completed by individuals or in pairs or small groups, where they will promote important discussions about different mental strategies. As in a crossword puzzle, children will find it easier to work out some of the more challenging questions once they have filled in the easier ones as some digits will already be there for them. ANSWER GRIDS for all 8 puzzles are included within the file and could be printed for pupils to self-check (or displayed later on the board), cutting down on your marking! I hope these Mental Numeracy resources save you time and provide great opportunities for your pupils to get regular practice to boost their mental maths agility. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment. Many thanks.

If it is a trickier word (such as a famous mathematician), the letters are already placed in the correct order in the grid.

FREE for new buyers – Enter code OUTSTANDINGOCT at checkout. A well-differentiated bingo /lotto game pack for children to have fun consolidating French numbers vocabulary (les nombres / les numeros) with both simple number match and mental maths versions included. There are 2 sets of 6 boards for each of 0-40 and 0-100 – one set features the French number word, the other less challenging version features digits. Print and laminate as required. Both the 0-40 and 0-100 games also have two sets of bingo cards each – print page 1 to 3 if you want pupils to have mental maths calculations to match to the numbers on their boards.

Therefore this should suit a range of ages, abilities and French experience from Key Stage / KS2 (and equivalents) upwards. I hope this saves you some time.

French Numbers (Les Nombres) Presentation

French Numbers (Les Nombres) Presentation

A popular Powerpoint lesson presentation with more than 60 slides, taking learners through French numbers from 0 to 100. Ideal for Key Stage 2 (KS2) or early KS3. Featuring key teaching points for Les Nombres / Les Numeros / Les Chiffres, it breaks them down into small chunks of ten numbers at a time so that teachers can use whatever part of the presentation suits the needs of their class. There are recap slides at various points with tables of numbers and also slides with numbers in French and English for pupils to translate, with answers appearing on the click of the mouse. There are slides with large numbers in digit format to play a game of 'splat' where the teacher can call out a French number and children can compete in threes or so to hit the number on the whiteboard (if you're not using a touchscreen) but this can also be used for other teacher questioning. The last few slides introduce some mental maths in French, introducing words for 'add', 'subtract', 'multiplied by', and 'divide by'. There are some calculations using just numbers from 0-40 and then some using numbers to 100. For children to become really familiar with French numbers it's great to get them playing around with them in maths activities. These last slides would serve as a good introduction to using French numbers in calculations and could be developed by using some of my French mental maths resources, which you can purchase as part of a bundle with this presentation or individually. Or you can get a smaller bundle of this presentation, number worksheets and crosswords too.
