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. Contents • Personal Pronouns Page 3 • The Present Tense of Regular Verbs Page 5 • Irregular Verbs in the Present Tense Page 7 • Haben and Sein Page 9 • Separable Verbs Page 10 • The Perfect Tense with Haben Page 11 • The Perfect Tense with Sein Page 14 • The Perfect Tense with Haben and Sein Page 16 • The Future Tense Page 17 • Modal Verbs Page 19 • Word Order (Simple) Page 21 • Word Order (Complex) Page 22 • Word Order (Time, Manner, Place ) Page 23 • Prepositions with the Dative Case Page 24 • Prepositions with the Accusative Case Page 26 • Dual Case Prepositions Page 28 • Plurals Page 29 • Relative Clauses Page 31 • Questions Page 32 • Comparatives and Superlatives Page 33 • Solutions Page 35
Ferdinand the Film

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.
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!

Why learn a language/celebration assembly/open evening/prize giving PowerPoint/German/French

(0)
This is a PowerPoint I used in our MFL celebration assembly. It has recent quotes from the Independent and the Guardian about the importance of languages, a slide explaining how learning a languages benefits pupils, a Wordle type graphic showing the main skills that come out when you enter articles/surveys about language learning, a slide which shows specifically why students have been chosen as winners and some slides to add the names of winners. This could also be used on open evenings and around options time and also for general display in MFL faculties.

A similar booklet for foundation is also available.

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 Umwelt (Environment)
Vicky79Vicky79

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.

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!
Peppa Pig (Peppa Wutz) German Christmas Winter Snow  Activity

Peppa Pig (Peppa Wutz) German Christmas Winter Snow Activity

(0)
UPDATED DEC 2018 TO INCLUDE A NEW YOUTUBE LINK. THE OLD VIDEO HAD DISAPPEARED! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pPnxvZ9OUZo A lesson based on the German Peppa Pig episode “Schnee”. Would be good as a Christmas activity, that’s not just “watching a video” and has lots of educational content. Covers lots of winter vocab (to do with snow), body parts (on the snowman), clothes (hat, gloves etc.) and lots of basic verbs (bauen, machen, lachen, weinen, finden, sagen, fragen) mostly in the present tense (one bit in the perfect) and adjectives (kalt, warm, zufrieden). Includes a starter with extension, a gap fill and a vocab translation exercise. Oh, and another file with answers. Edit: I’ve added a work sheet with gaps to be filled. This can also be cut up and used as an ordering exercise. Another edit: I’ve added an easier version. I used the harder one with Y10 and top set Y9 and the easier version with Y9 middle sets.
German Pronunciation Lesson

German Pronunciation Lesson

(0)
This is a resource that I originally made to help my Year 11 with their pronunciation for one of their upcoming speaking assessments. It features many of the main commonly mispronounced sounds, with various example words. It the builds up to a slide with a mixture of words and sounds, culminating in some really long words, just for fun! As a bonus, I have left in the last activity which was to help my class memorise a paragraph, something which, obviously, we are moving away from again, but still might be useful (it seemed a shame to delete it anyway!)
Overcoming the Monster Year 7 English (Stormbreaker extract)

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.
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!
