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.
Includes a review of past, present and future tenses, some sentence building and translation activities, and an extended written piece to help pupils put together 3 paragraphs (past, present & future) on films. Also, a word mat to support pupils in writing their work.
Perfect for revising KS3 holidays topic when beginning topic at KS4. Allows pupils to talk about where, who with, how they get there and what they do - focussing on extended sentences in present and past tense, but also some support for future and putting all 3 together at the end. Includes dice game, translation, adverbs of frequency.
KS3 - KS4 Film review. Play trapdoor for speaking or use as a scaffold to write a review of a film you have watched in class.

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.
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.
