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)

GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)

(1)
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.

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 foundation is also available.

Overcoming the Monster Year 7 English (Stormbreaker extract)
Vicky79Vicky79

Overcoming the Monster Year 7 English (Stormbreaker extract)

(0)
This is a lesson I made as part of the "Overcoming the Monster" topic where students had to eventually write their own monster story. It focusses on how to write an epic battle/final showdown section and also on the more general theme of how to use language to improve writing i.e. using powerful verbs, adjectives, similes, metaphors etc. I have based it on a section near the end of "Stormbreaker" when Alex battles the jelly fish. The resource includes a PP and the extract from the book which you/pupils can read out or you can use the audio book which are available on YouTube.
Ferdinand the Film
Vicky79Vicky79

Ferdinand the Film

(3)
Worksheets based on the film “Ferdinand” about a bull who doesn’t want to be a fighter. I used this with my lower set Spanish group who are not continuing after the end of year 9. The film and resources are in English, but have cultural references to Spain and there are also quite a few Spanish words to spot. Linked to this , we also did a lesson debating bull fights. This resource includes: Main Character summaries, comprehension questions and answers on the film trailer, comprehension questions and answers on the whole film. There are 45 questions on the whole film comprehension question sheet. Unfortunately, I have had to hide a lot of them, as TES are showing far too much in the preview! When you purchase the resource, just delete the black boxes covering some of the sheets.
Personal Pronouns German

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!

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.
GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)

GCSE German Umwelt (Environment)

(0)
At least 3 lessons worth on the environment topic. Focuses on the top 10 biggest environmental problems in the world. Includes a video with transcript, gap fill and retranslation activity. Also included is a vocab sheet for one of the starters. This is quite challenging, so more appropriate for higher candidates, but foundation can also access it with the support provided.
GCSE German Social Issues
Vicky79Vicky79

GCSE German Social Issues

(0)
This is a reading activity aimed at Year 10/11 on the topic of “Social Issues”. It focuses on the FSJ (Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr) so is ideal for the part of the course on “voluntary work”. The reading text itself is quite challenging (as it is adapted form an authentic resource), but I have also included a vocab list and underlined the words in the text which are included on it. There is also a set of comprehension questions to work through.
AS German Familienbeziehungen (Family)
Vicky79Vicky79

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!

End of term French cultural activity. Eiffel Tower pop up card with facts.

(0)
Instructions and resources for making a card with a pop up Eiffel Tower inside and some interesting facts about the tower. Great for end of term or other French cultural lessons. Would suite primary, Year 7 and even my Year 8s still like it. I've written detailed instructions on how to do it. Even my bottom set managed, but if you're struggling, let me know and I'll send you a picture of a finished one!
Beginners German Lesson 1 Numbers and Greetings
Vicky79Vicky79

Beginners German Lesson 1 Numbers and Greetings

(1)
This is the first in a series of lessons which I wrote for a skills (rather than topics) based scheme of work. It covers basic greetings and numbers up to 10 but the main focus is on setting up the class with the skills to work out things for themselves. The focus for this lesson is pronunciation. 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.
