Created for my Foundation level Year 10’s whilst in lockdown, this powerpoint aims to ensure that students are able to describe how they would celebrate festivals, with the use of verbs that can be recycled across a range of festivals. It recaps on the use of regular verbs in the present tense, and how to adapt sentences for your own needs. There is a verb matching activity, a recap of how to conjugate regular verbs, and then some translation activities and a worksheet. The translation activities can be completed orally or in writing.
