Enf of year French Quiz
Perfect activity for the dreaded last lesson of French! A Quiz about France and to some extent the French speaking world. 6 categories (Paris, Pays francophones, Histoire, Art, Langue française, Gastronomie) of 5 questions each. I use it as a pub quiz, pupils are by team, we go through the questions then the answers and the winning team wins some sweeties. Aimed at Y9/Y10.
Ma maison idéale
A short reading followed by some explanations of the conditional mood on the theme of the ideal house. Perfect for GCSE.
Le reglement scolaire AQA GCSE
A PPT to introduce the school rules (Unit 10 of AQA GCSE). This lesson comes after the lesson on describing your school so there is a little recap of that at the beginning. I advise printing slides 2, 4, 6 and 22 as revision aid.
French Perfect Tense and Holiday
I use this PP in pair with the worksheet 'Perfect Tense, Easy as 1, 2, 3'. It is to introduce the perfect tense and the topic of holiday.
A Song by Stromae (Formidable)
This song has a great success with Y10 and is much more appropriate than other Stromae's songs in terms of lyrics. This is how I used the song: 1. A bit of background on Stromae. 2. Listen to the song and try to understand which words are missing (I wrote them in a box on the right in a random order) 3.Translate each word in English in the box. 4. Some paragraphs have been translated in English. Try to match them up! 5. Chantons ensemble! (Only if you feel like it!)
'Describe yourself and someone else' sequence
This big powerpoint covers the whole sequence of lessons 'describe your self and someone else'! It introduces 4 infinitives: 's'appeller', 'avoir', 'être' and'habiter'. I have made it for my Year 7 groups.
La vie saine AQA GCSE
27 slides to practise the topic 6.2 of the new AQA French GCSE Healthy and Unhealthy Living. Focus on Il faut + infinitive and a quick revision of the imperfect. The PPT also includes quite a bit of translation which works well with the requirements of the new GCSE. Please do add a review if you download it :)

A PPT and a supporting worksheet to work on translation with Y11 or able Y10s. The PPT includes tips to translate into French as well as short translation exercises for each tip. It can also be used to work on Essay Writing.
3 Grammar Points
This worksheets explains 3 different grammar points that are often challenging for pupils: 1.The difference between 'muy&' and &';mucho' 2. The possessive &'de&'; 3. Toda/o/as/os I made it for my Spanish Ab Initio students but I reckon it can be used for GCSE pupils.
El Medio Ambiente Crossword
Crossword using some words from the topic "El Medio Ambiente". The words are written in English and they must write them in Spanish in the crosswords
I created this worksheet after marking essays to prevent the pupils from making the same mistakes again and again. 1. They must find the mistakes and correct the sentences. 2. They must translate the sentences into French.
Simple translation exercise to teach the pupils how to use PARA. I used it with my IB Spanish Ab Initio but I'm sure it could suit GCSE pupils.
List of Adjectives
If you are tired of everything being "super" and "chouette", this list is for your!

Several activities to revise the 6 AS topics and practise spontaneous speaking. Articulate Game 4 key ideas Match up the synonyms 10 questions for each theme Some useful expressions to give your opinion.

AQA French GCSE- Unit 1 Me, my family and friends
I have designed this PPT to cover the whole of Unit 1 (Me, my family and friends). It provides explanations and activities and I would advise to use it together with the textbook. It contains 53 slides to practise: Adjectival Agreement Comparatives Near Future Simple Future Possessive Adjectives I have added a few GCSE styled exercises such as translation and True, False, Not Mentioned. I have also included a very comprehensive Speaking/ Writing mat which my pupils always find very useful! If it is popular enough, I will share my PPT for Unit 2 Technology in everyday life.
IGCSE Written Task
A worksheet to help the pupils answering the Written Task in the IGCSE exam (Edexcel or Cambridge) but it can essentially be used for any written task. It is designed to encourage the pupils to use several tenses. It summarizes: - the imperfect - the perfect - the present -the near future - the simple future I also wrote a paragraph as an example for the pupils.
The DOM-TOM (overseas departments)
I have created this worksheet to introduce the DOM-TOM. I believe it is important for the pupils to know that France is not only the 'metropolitan France'. I first asked the pupils to number the departments and at home or in the IT room, look on the internet and write on the map where each of them is located Then, I asked the pupils to prepare a PPT by pair or group of 3 on one department including language, food, main city, population, pictures etc.
