This is adapted from a fantastic resource I originally found on here, so credit for the menu, clues and concept goes to Rosaespanola! I have simply taken the fantastic concept of a food and drink based murder mystery lesson and adapted and updated the PP and resources.
The lesson is aimed at Key Stage 3. Students are given a copy of a restaurant menu, clues regarding what each family member likes to eat and drink, a dictionary, hint cards and a sheet to complete with their answers. PP, all resources and instructions all included. Fantastic resource which promotes critical thinking, independent learning and collaboration.
Classroom display poster detailing to students how to complete a What Went Well, Even Better If and Yellow Box Corrections style feedback and improvement session. It also includes a range of literacy marking codes to guide students to what they need to correct. Please see my ‘MFL Literacy Marking Codes’ for more specific language based ones.
A selection of eye-catching, professional-looking reward postcards/posters for students. There are a range of reasons they may be awarded, e.g. ‘spectacular speaker’. I have laminated them and printed in A5 size and they are displayed on my Language Stars Board. Each month I simply write up the winners in marker pen and then rub off and update. The kids love them! For the Twitter Hall of Fame one, I print a QR code which links to a photo/video demonstrating the best class/students of the month.
Tarsia puzzle used to introduce or revise places in town in French. The jigsaw pieces should be cut up and challenge pupils to match them using knowledge of cognates to support them. More interactive, engaging and challenging than a standard vocab match up. Perfect for an observation as it demonstrates collaborative, student-led learning. For more info on tarsia puzzles and to download a free, safe software to design your own search for Mr Barton Maths.
Fully resourced quiz perfect for tutor/form time, assemblies or end of year lessons. It has 6 rounds which test pupils on popular culture from the 2018-2019 academic year, including celebrity gossip, music, film, riddles and celebrity mash ups. The resource is fully animated with all answers provided.
An eye-catching resource to demonstrate how KS3 students can achieve Grades 1-9 in Years 7, 8 and 9. The file will download as a PDF as it was designed on Canva, making it perfect for your displays. Each file contains assessment criteria for that year group and example paragraphs demonstrating what each grade would look like in speaking or writing. Please note: the idea is that pupils will progress from grade 1 up to grade 9 over the course of the year, so a Year 7 grade 1 is not equivalent to a Year 8 grade 1.
Beautifully designed French ‘Languages Star’ postcard. Ideally given out once a month to students who demonstrate an excellent attitude to learning in languages. Very eye-catching and appealing to both students and parents. I also have a Spanish version available if you search my shop.
A thinking skills based mystery lesson based on the school topic. Aimed at Key Stage 3. Students are given a copy of Hermione’s timetable which has just a few lessons filled in and a series of cryptic clues to work out when the rest of her lessons take place. PP, all resources and instructions all included. Fantastic resource which promotes critical thinking, independent learning and collaboration.
