A lesson to support the telling of the story of 'les quatre amis'. I have not included the story itself as there are plenty of versions available by other authors. This resource is to support pupils in learning the animals and the colurs featured in the story - le lapin (rabbit), le cheval (horse), le mouton (sheep), la souris (mouse), gris (grey), marron (brown), noir (black), blanc (white), orange (orange), jaune (yellow), rouge (red), bleu (blue), vert (green). Also included are some verbs - galope, court, sautille and trottine. Includes lots of suggestions for ways to employ this resource - games, AfL and sentence building.

Also includes lists of irregulars for each tense. Assumes pupils have basic knowledge of infinitives, stems etc. Great Revision resource, especially now that translation and grammar feature more prominently in the GCSE exams.
Understanding a story in French.
Adapted from a couple of resources downloaded from TES authors qjess and Kate Gerrard, this powerpoint file allows the teacher to introduce key French vocabulary from the story by playing games such as 'Telepathy', 'Fly Swat' and 'Chinese Whipers'. Pupils will then be familiar with some of the key language they encounter when they read the story - the characters (la mere, Petit Chaperon Rouge, la gran-mere, le loup, le forestier) and other nouns such as parts of the face, le panier, le lit, la maison, la foret and les fleurs.
A presentation offering visual support for primary French students, leading into a simple conversation including: greetings, saying how you are, age and birthday in French. Can be used as an early lesson, or to revise basic greetings and conversations.
A word mat with LOTS of French time phrases, connectives (grouped by function), intensifiers and adjectives. Also, useful questions for tackling ANY reading task, and some questions to help pupils to prepare to complete a writing task in French. Best to print and laminate for pupils to use regularly, or alternatively put in the front of pupils' books folders for regular use.
Key Stage 2 French Resource for a couple of lessons on creating French adverts for toys. Includes names of toys, prices, opinions and justifications. Includes games and AfL whiteboard sentence creating activities. If you collate the slides into a booklet it could also be used to support pupils with the language while they prepare their adverts. Be prepared to model an example yourself before you ask pupils to stand in front of the class - If you won't do it, they won't! It is part of the Y4 Scheme of Work I use, but could equally be used with other year groups for a fun or reward lesson.

Display high frequency, important vocabulary on your classroom wall. Fill your wall with words for a literacy-rich classroom display. Comprised of lists of Spanish time phrases, connectives, intensifiers, opinion phrases and some common adjectives. Pupils love to stretch themselves by including words or phrases from the wall to improve their work. Challenge them to include particular ones for effective differentiation.
