**Make your own French Passport **
Set up a passport making station in your classroom with the sign. You will need a few student helpers, pens/pencils, the instruction sheet and plenty of copies of the passport template, ready folded into a little book. You might want a tape measure too as not many know how tall they are.
Once they have finished, you or your student helpers can stamp their new passport (if you have a stamp)
**Make your own French Weather Vane **
Set up a Weather Vane making station in your classroom with the sign. You will need a few student helpers, pens/pencils, brass fasteners, the instruction sheet and plenty of copies of the weather vane template and cut out arrows. Student helpers help your visitors to copy the correct French phrase onto their weather vane. They can also help them to assemble it with the brass fastener and arrow in the middle.

This is a display to help pupils with the photocard element of the new GCSE. It can be used with all year groups to help increase fluency. The language is fairly simple but can be edited if you wish to adapt or add any vocabulary.
It can either be an Instagram or Snapchat style display (or neither)
Both options are included and you can see an example of the first slide of the PowerPoint.
*The PPT ‘Photocard Display 2’ might be best printed on A3
This display also works well along side the display on French speaking countries as it contains lots of photos that could be described. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/resource-12569383
I hope this saves you some time and helps to brighten up your classroom.
Display: French Speaking Countries / Les Pays Francophones
This display is based on some of the countries that speak French (not only the official 29)
It is available in 2 different styles.
Style 1: A simplified version of the display based around the camera roll you might find on a mobile or tablet.
Style 2: This version contains more detail and has some simples facts about the countries as well as some hashtags written in French. (This version is also probably more time efficient as it requires less cutting out) This display would also work well alongside with the French GCSE 9-1 Photocard display.
I hope you find them useful.
Display: Interactive French Calendar (les jours, les dates, les mois, les saisons, le temps)
Use this display each day to show the day, date, month, season and weather.
This is ideal for a primary or secondary classroom.
Move the green boxes and arrows to high-light the appropriate word/number/image each day. It’s a good idea to laminate the green boxes and arrows so that that last longer if they are being moved each day.
Pupils really enjoy being in charge of changing the display - they also enjoy reminding me when I’ve forgotten :-)
