GCSE German General Conversation Booklet with Sample Answers Foundation

(1)
Two versions of a GCSE German speaking preparation booklet, one with sample answers and one without for students to prepare themselves. Both booklets are foundation level. The student booklet has lines under each question to guide them as to how much they should prepare. Originally based on AQA, but will still be useful for other exam boards. A similar booklet for higher is also available.
Boppard Treasure Hunt/Town Trail German Trip Activity UPDATED JUNE 19

Boppard Treasure Hunt/Town Trail German Trip Activity UPDATED JUNE 19

(1)
UPDATED JUNE 19. SOME OUT OF DATE QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN CHANGED AND I’VE ADDED THE ANSWERS AS REQUESTED. A treasure hunt that I use every year on my Rhine trip to the Boppard area. The treasure hunt takes around an hour and you can edit it to meet students wherever you want (I suggest in a nice warm café with Kaffee und Kuchen). It starts in the main square and I suggest sending group off with staggered timings, or even get different groups to start at different questions. I also give extra marks for speed, as long as they have answered everything! You can also give extra points for asking them to answer some questions in both German and English (I have done this on some but not all) PLease note, I cannot guarantee this will be still up to date when you use it!

Sankt Martinstag/ St Martin's Day

Sankt Martinstag/ St Martin's Day

(0)
This is a bundle put together for St. Martin’s Day in German lessons. There are different versions for Y7, Y8 and Y10/11, but they could be used in any order for any year (I just don’t have any Year 9s this year!). There are 3 PPTs. Some sections of all 3 PPTs are the same, but the song is different for each year group, in cas I want to repeat the lessons next year. The GCSE one also has the transcript of the “Sendung mit dem Elefanten” St Martin’s Day programme with gaps and a GCSE style photo card task relating to unit 4 (Festivals and Traditions). The KS3 lesson have really simple questions for the video, which can mostly be answered by just watching, without even listening to the sound. There is also a lantern picture to decorate at the end. It’s taken me a while to put all of this together, so I hope you like it!

GCSE German Grammar/Preparation for AS Level

(2)
This is a 36 page booklet covering basic grammar for GCSE level. It uses simple, none topic specific vocabulary as the focus is on grammar. There are simple explanations, exercises and solutions at the back of the booklet. I also give this to prospective Year 12 students to work through over the summer as a reminder/preparation for the AS level. I also have the whole thing as a Smart Notebook document, where answers can be revealed. Selected parts could also be used with good KS3 groups. 20 Grammar points are covered. Please see below.

GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)
Vicky79Vicky79

GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)

(2)
A full lesson (can also stretch to 2) I did as an observation with Y11 on the topic of "Umwelt". It concentrates on the skill of writing for the outgoing controlled assessments, but it will still be very useful in the new spec as it is also about general writing skill and translation. This lesson comes with a PP, handouts, a help sheet for foundation candidates and ABCD posters for the plenary, where students had to turn to the correct letter stuck around the room. This lesson has been awarded "outstanding" twice. It is based on the Heinemann Higher book for GCSE but includes a help sheet for weaker pupils. I can also send you the lesson plan on request.

German Perfect Tense Verb Wheels
Vicky79Vicky79

German Perfect Tense Verb Wheels

(1)
Two verb wheel templates for forming the perfect tense in German. One is for “haben” verbs and one for “sein”, although if you wanted, you could save card/photocopying charges by putting "haben"on one side and “sein” on the other. The sections have been left blank for students to enter their own verbs, but a 3rd slide has been provided with lists of suggested verbs. Obviously, you can choose different verbs or even type the rest in for them to make the activity quicker. I have tried to choose verbs most commonly used by secondary school students. You will also need some split pins for this activity. I’m going to use it as an end of term activity for my year 9 classes who will then put them in their folders at the beginning of year 10.

Spanish Cover Lesson Loosely based on Viva 1 pp 56 + 57 What do you study? ¿Qué estudias?

(0)
A very self-explanatory worksheet useful for cover lessons in Spanish. It is loosely based on pages 56 and 57 of Viva 1, second edition on the topic of “What do you study?” ¿Qué estudias? Answers can be completed in exercise books or on lined paper (to make them last longer!). There are some exercises which use words and phrases not in Viva, but they are easily guessable, or pupils can use a dictionary. Answers and translations are also provided for non-specialist cover teachers.

AS German Familienbeziehungen (Family)

AS German Familienbeziehungen (Family)

(0)
I made this lesson for a Year 11 taster session in the summer term. I wanted to pick something they were familiar with, so chose the topic of "family" but used resources from Zeitgeist rather than Nelson Thornes 1) because I think Z is easier and 2) because we use NT in Year 12 so didn't want them repeating the same work later. It comes with a PowerPoint, handouts and a vocab sheet. You can make this last 2 hours if you include the extra grammar activity. This can, of course, also be used with actual Y12s!
How to use PEE in Cirque du Freak

How to use PEE in Cirque du Freak

(0)
A worksheet (and answer sheet) to show how to use PEE when writing about Darren Shan's Cirque du Freak. These sheets concentrate specifically on the introduction and how to answer the question "Is the introduction to CDF a successful story opening?" I made this sheet in response to the first attempts to answer the question which didn't go to well! Second attempts were much improved!
Personal Pronouns German
Vicky79Vicky79

Personal Pronouns German

(1)
This is one of the units from my GCSE German/Preparation for AS Level German Grammar booklet. This one is on personal pronouns. It consists of a very clear explanation with diagrams and exercises to complete afterwards to consolidate learning. I also have this available as a Smart Notebook document where the answers can be revealed to the whole class as you go along. I have left it very plain on purpose. Feel free to add your own decoration if you want!
Beginners German Lesson 2 Alphabet and Dictionary Skills
Vicky79Vicky79

Beginners German Lesson 2 Alphabet and Dictionary Skills

(1)
This is the second in a series of lessons which I wrote for a skills (rather than topics) based scheme of work. It covers the alphabet but the main focus is dictionary skills in order to set up the class with the skills to work out things for themselves. These lessons can be used alongside Echo/Echo Express 1. (They would probably also go with any beginners course). The lessons were originally written for set 1/2 year 8 beginners but could be adapted for year 7 mixed ability learners.
