French - Label the countries in Europe

(1)
Pupils use the worksheet (and their knowledge of countries in Europe) to label the map of Europe in French. This could be done previous to or following teaching of countries in Europe or maybe a quick pre-worksheet quiz about the countries in English.

French A level taster session - new AQA specification

(0)
This bundle of resources includes a PPT to introduce the new French A level from AQA, followed by an activity using a popular song in the French charts. There is also a worksheet to go with the song activity. The booklet is designed to accompany the PPT and includes information about the new A level in French from AQA. Remember, you may need to edit such information as the number of teachers and lessons. This is on page 2. There is reference to resources on Kerboodle as well, which of course will not be relevant to your students, so you may wish to delete/edit these parts.

Use the space on each slide to enter the words/phrases you want pupils to memorise whilst they’re fading automatically. They could then either write them out or translate them either during the fade or after. Each slide takes 10, 20 and 30 seconds to fade out.

French - Progress review sheet

(0)
I use this sheet either at the end of each half-term (after assessments) or at the start of the following half-term. Pupils fill in their self-assessment of their own progress over the half-term, including what they found most challenging and their personal targets for the following half-term.
French - Telling the time

French - Telling the time

(0)
Use this PPT to teach pupils how to tell the time in French. There is an accompanying worksheet they can complete while doing this. The first few slides recaps on telling the time in English, as some pupils struggle with using an analogue clock to tell the time. After introducing the time in French, practise what they have learned by asking pupils to either shout out the time in French or write the time in words on mini whiteboards.

Tarsia puzzle template

(12)
Type in a word/phrase it the TL on one line and then the equivalent in English opposite it (as in the example). Do this within each inner section and then cut it up into cards. Pupils must then form a triangle with the cards by matching the TL to the English. Instructions are in the notes section of the PPT. It's worth Googling 'Tarsia puzzles'!
Asking questions in French
TheMFLTeacherTheMFLTeacher

Asking questions in French

(0)
This resource teaches pupils how to formulate questions in French, using 3 different methods: 'est-ce que', inversion and going up at the end of a sentence. Pupils then get to practise these methods with a couple of image prompts and a 'What's the Question?' game at the end.

Trapdoor template

(1)
This activity can be done in pairs or as a class. As a class, one pupil leaves the room while everyone else decides what the correct sequence should be. The pupil re-enters the room and tries to guess the sequence. If incorrect, they have to start again. It's better as a pairwork activity. One pupil decides which options they want to use in the complete paragraph. The other reads through the paragraph, guessing the options as they go. If incorrect, they must start again. Cue lots of laughter!

French - Music genres & opinions lesson

(0)
This is a whole lesson on different genres of music and how to give your opinion about the different genres. You will need access to the internet and speakers, as there is music for them to listen to in silence at the start and 3 different French singers/groups on YouTube (Louise Attaque, MC Solaar & Lilian Renaud). The accompanying worksheet is there to help pupils throughout the lesson.
