GCSE French Role Play: Video 'At the Hotel'

GCSE French Role Play: Video 'At the Hotel'

This is a link to my You Tube channel where you will find a whiteboard animation video. This is great to use in class with the pupils- can they translate te sentences quicker than the pen? They could write them down or say them out loud? A fabulous task to set as revision as well- pupils more inclined to watch a you tube video to music (I have great stats evidence for previous year’s videos - by analysing the demographics I know that thousands of pupils watched my video in the week before the French exams!) More topics on the way. There is a bundle of activities for this topic here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-french-role-play-task-at-the-hotel-11874119

French Interactive Quiz: Food

French Interactive Quiz: Food

An interactive quiz to use as snappy starter, fun plenary or engaging revision tool. 12 French sentences about food, each has a multiple choice answer. If the pupils selects the correct answer hey are sent o a celebration page. If the wrong answer is selected they are sent to an 'oh no' page with a funny voice. The pupils love this quiz. There are other versions available in my TES shop. You could turn it into a game of noughts and crosses of connect 4 by drawing a quick 3x4 grid on the whiteboard and pupils compete to see which team can complete a row first by answering their chosen question correctly first time. Please consider leaving feedback- it helps other users make an informed decision and really means a huge amount to me!

GCSE French Role Play: At the Tourist Office Video

A whitebaord animation video to challenge pupils to translate the role play related sentences that appear on screen before the ‘floating hand’ translates for them. This is to practise rather than introduce the vocabulary. I recommend purchasing this powerpoint https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/gcse-french-role-play-at-the-tourist-office-presentation-and-games-11875982 to accomplany the video if you want to introduce or revise the vocab needed for the tourist office.

French Valentine's Game Part 1

French Valentine's Game Part 1

Part 1 is a freebie. You don't need the other parts to play but if you would like to purchase them they are available here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/french-valentine-s-game-11829704?theme=1 A great 'speed dating' speaking activity. Distribute hearts to all pupils and put on some French music. They circulate the room asking 'comment t'appelles-tu?' until they find their matching pair eg. Tu es Barack Obama, trouve Michelle. Parts 2, 3 and 4 use the question 'ou habites-tu?' 'qu'est-ce que tu aimes manger? and 'qu'est-ce que tu aimes faire?' Great for getting the pupils speaking. A godd one off valentines lesson without having to teach them new vocab. Could even be good for KS4 to warm them up and develop confidence with familiar questions.

Greetings Starter Cards

Greetings Starter Cards

Credit card sized word clouds- excellent starter activity. Great for revision as well. Could give out as an extension tool for early finishers. Give them out upon arrival and give them a time frame. At the end of the timeframe pupils go head to head in a 'bidding war'. Each pupil says how many they can translate and have to prove it. The highest bidder goes first- if he can get to his bid he wins, if he can't the next bidder goes and has to get to his highest bid to win.
