French Basics KS2 / KS3

Massive value and many hours of time-saving, engaging resources for Key Stage 2, early KS3 and equivalents.

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?)

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.

Speed Distance Time

Speed Distance Time

6 differentiated Four in a Row / Connect Four style game boards for consolidation of Speed, Distance and Time calculations, to suit Upper Key Stage 2 (KS2) or early KS3 (originally designed for a Year 6 / Y6 class). This is a fun alternative activity to additional jotter / textbook work on this maths / numeracy topic, after pupils have been introduced to (or revised) the formulae D=SxT, S=D÷T and T=D÷S. ANSWER VERSIONS of all games are included. Contains a more simple (one star) and more challenging (two star) version for each of: Distance Travelled Average Speed Time Taken In addition to featuring generally more challenging calculations, the two-star versions of each require conversion between units in some cases. Print and laminate the boards for regular use. I recommend printing boards in A3 if possible (or enlarging them to A3 on the copier) but A4 will be okay too. Pupils work as pairs against pairs or one against one to get four correct answers in a row - horizontally, vertically or diagonally. They roll a die each time to find which column to pick a calculation from (the columns are numbered 1-6). If there are no calculations left in the column whose number they have rolled, they either skip a go or roll again (depending on the rules you have chosen). Pupils write their answers on the board with a whiteboard marker. They could either use a different coloured pen to record answers on the board or add an initial or symbol if using the same coloured pen as their opponent. I hope your students enjoy playing these games. What about this festive mental maths puzzle pack?

Mental Maths Crossnumbers Year 5 / 6

8 Mental Arithmetic Cross Number puzzles, originally designed for KS2 Y5 and Y6 (P6 and P7 and other equivalents) but they will suit some early KS3 classes for revision and consolidation.

A fun, flexible resource that could be used 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 / calculations once they have filled in some of 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) and therefore cut down on your marking! Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Times Tables, Doubling and Halving, Multiplying and Dividing by 10 and 100, Fractions, Percentages and Decimals.

You might want to give this support sheet out once students have done as much as they can do without help. Due to the wide range of facts in the puzzle, it works best when students can pool their knowledge in a group. They could research any clues they are unable to work out for themselves. The crossword works especially well if you print it in A3 but it works fine in A4 too. A solution grid is also provided, which could be printed or displayed on the whiteboard at the end. Includes: Robert Burns, Scottish Wars of Independence, Scottish Parliament, rivers, cities, inventors, art, literature, music, clothing, food, sports stars, mountains, islands, actors, Kings and Queens and more.

It’s an aspect of maths that pupils often forget but after they’ve played a few games of Crazy Doors, with its attractive board and the scenario of being chased by trolls through a swampy forest, it’ll hopefully stick in their mind! There's a multiplication and division by 10, 100 and 1000 version and one for lower ability or younger pupils for multiplying and dividing by just 10 and 100. 10 game boards are included for each (it's the same layout for each board but with different numbers on the doors). Each group of 2-6ish players requires a game board, a Doors Targets board (2 included, one for each version), an instruction card (included), dice, counters and mini whiteboards (or paper) and pens. They throw the dice to make a 2-digit starting number and the aim of the game is to change that number by multiplying/dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 to meet the requirements printed on doors in the forest. If they meet the requirements, they may go through the door. They have to throw a counter onto the Doors Target board to find out what they will be multiplying/dividing by - they'll need to think about the best one to aim at and then also hope their throwing is accurate or they could get held up at a particular door for a while! This fun activity should also consolidate understanding of place value, including decimals. I've added a place value grid for convenience in case any pupils require this support. Some of the previews can take a while to load so I've included some additional preview files as JPEGs. I hope your pupils enjoy playing this. Thank you for your interest in my resources.

Times Tables Games

Times Tables Games

5 different Key Stage 2 / KS2 (and equivalents) game boards (4 multiplication and 1 for linked division facts) for Four in a Row games. Fun, strategic games to practise times table facts. Laminate and use again and again. The original files contain boards for the 2-9 times tables and an additional file contains versions with 11 and 12 times table calculations added. All times table boards come in colour and black and white versions. I recommend printing in A3 if possible but A4 is okay. Multiplying Games: Two children (or two pairs of children) take it in turns to write an answer over a times table question on the board. Ideally they use a different colour whiteboard pen, however if this is not possible they could add an initial or symbol each time too. First to get 4 in a row - vertically, horizontally or diagonally - is the winner. The times tables questions are designed to print in faintish grey (on the black and white versions) or white (on the colour versions) so as not to get in the way of the children's answers. It works especially well if pupils roll a dice to determine which column they should answer a question from. The columns are numbered 1-6. If the column is already completed, they could either miss a go or roll again. Differentiation: All 2-9 times table versions come in a differentiated format too, with sidebars added, featuring all answers listed in numerical order. This works really well with lower ability or younger pupils who require a little more support. They can score through the number they have used each time. Dividing Game (2-10 time table): There is a set of cards to go with the division board. Print 2 sets on different coloured card for each game being played. Children take it in turns to lay a card down on a matching answer box. The cards are the right size to work with the division board when the division board is printed in A3. If printing the board in A4, scale down the cards to match. I've included the cards in Word format too, for convenience.

Also I have a substantial presentation and worksheet / puzzle pack on this topic, available separately or alongside this pack in a BUNDLE (see below). All 3 packs focus on the same vocabulary. These resources best suit Key Stage 2 (KS2) and early KS3 and equivalents. They focus on 30 key food and drink words but as there is a huge amount of possible food and drink vocabulary, I’ve included editable versions (MS Publisher) of most resources to amend if required. As some words differ between UK and US English (chips / fries etc), I’ve included separate US versions where relevant. SNAKES AND LADDERS Print and laminate the board. Play as normal Snakes and Ladders, but students have to say the French for the food or drink item they land on, otherwise they must move back. An instruction card and details of a challenge version of this game are included in the file. LOOP GAME Whether used as whole class or group oral activity or a dominoes activity in pairs, this 20-card set is ideal for a starter or plenary session. Forms a continuous loop so you can start anywhere. JIGSAW PUZZLE 30-piece Tarsia Jigsaw Puzzle in PDF format (1-page solution and 3-page larger piece version). Print and laminate for regular use. Ideal for small groups or as an individual or paired early finisher task. PICTURE ACTIVITY CARDS (Publisher file only as too big to load as PDF). Can be used as bingo cards or noughts and crosses / tic tac toe cards (students choose food and drink to say aloud in French before putting their symbol over them). 16 cards, 9 pictures on each. 30 different foods and drinks featured. Could be used for other activities - cut them up into individual pictures for paired oral activities, for example. Key phrases that can be developed using these resources include: Qu’est-ce que tu aimes manger? ((What do you like to eat?), Qu’est-ce que tu aimes boire? (What do you like to drink?), Qu’est-ce que vous voulez? (What do you want?) Je voudrais… (I would like…) Explore my other French resources through these bundles: Huge French Basics Bundle (over 70 resources) French Basics Games Bundle For engaging, time-saving printables and presentations to plan Primary Literacy, Maths and French lessons, please visit FullShelf Resources
