Blockbusters template for pairwork

(0)
Template for Blockbusters pairwork. Students could either write in clues for their partner in each hexagon, or you could add your own. The aim is to get from one side of the board to the other by answering questions/clues. The other person must also try and block their opponent.

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 A level taster session - new AQA specification

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.

Instead of saying “2 plus 3”, the teacher says “la grenouille plus le poisson”. Pupils reply with “le chien”. Make the sums as easy or as difficult as you like. If you use longer sums, remember to write it down as you go along and tell the pupils to do the same.

Use this PPT to introduce daily routine vocab to pupils. It starts by introducing the vocab, then pupils have to choose between the two options in French. Then, they must identify the phrases with the vowels missing. Finally, play a game of Blockbusters with the class to practise the new vocab.

Add the first letters of words in a phrase, images or words. In teams (red and blue), pupils aim to make a continuous line of their colour horizontally. When they have chosen a hexagon and have answered correctly, click on that hexagon to change it to the team colour.

French - Time expressions for tenses

(0)
Introduce pupils to different time phrases that refer to particular tenses (past, present & future), allowing them to show off their knowledge of tenses in a simple way. After introducing the time phrases, pupils must identify which tense must be used for each time phrase that appears on the board. They do this by stepping backwards (past), stomping (present) and stepping forwards (future).

My students stick this into the front cover of their exercise books and use it to record summative assessment results each half-term, giving them an overview of their progress over the year. It’s in the shape of an arrow and, at the end of the arrow, they write their target grade/level. When they record their assessment results, they also have to write a few words to say what they will do to try to improve their result for the next assessment.

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.
