French and Spanish resources for KS3, KS4 and KS5. Not pretty but effective!
French beginner worksheet on family
madcatladymadcatlady

French beginner worksheet on family

(2)
Two worksheets aimed at beginner year 7 French on the topic of family and introducing the vocab for family members. The grammar focus is on mon/ma and j’ai to form sentences. There are optional challenge questions but the idea would be that students could complete this work independently and without too much support. It would be good for homeowrk, to send home to complete or for when you need a quiet 20 minutes in class for whatever reason! I have aimed this a middle ability set. The first sheet is to build up from single items of vocab (family members) to sentences then on to a short paragraph. The idea is they will make fewer mistakes with writing as it is very scaffolded. The second sheet is reading comprehension with the aim of them being able to use the reading to help them write their own piece using ideas taken from the examples they read.

French talking about Christmas

French talking about Christmas

(0)
A scaffolded worksheet with the aim of getting students to write about their Christmas in French. Starts off with vocab into English then French. Sentence builder to get students to translate sentences into French using modals. Followed by three model paragraphs - all very similar with details changed. I was going to use the opportunity to revise telling the time and daily routine. Students are asked to complete three gapfilled translations into English then translate one back into French. Finally they should be able to write about their own Christmas. If they have worked very nicely there is a battleships game to play too

French GCSE writing on social problems (helping the homeless)

(0)
Worksheet going from vocabulary to sentences to writing a 90 or 150 word piece about social problems for GCSE French. Starts with focussing on the topic vocab (French to English, the English to French). Then moves to translating sentences into English and similar sentences into French. A sentence builder to make sentences that will be useful in the writing. There is an example 90 word answer with gapped translation and word find activity. Finally students write their own 90 word piece using what they have learnt and can move on to 150 words.

French GCSE writing on the environment

(0)
A series of activities designed to get students to be able to answer a question on the tricky topic of environment. Starts with single words into and from French and builds up to sentences. Work follows on an example answer for a 90 word question and then students write their own after picking out chunks and phrases from the example. A 150 word writing is the final task. On 4 sides so can be printed easily two pages to a side and on reverse to save paper!
GCSE French quickfire revision powerpoint

GCSE French quickfire revision powerpoint

(0)
GCSE French powerpoints for quickfire testing. Snippets of grammar. A very short snippet, phrase or word to translate and then the answer on the next slide. Designed to be quick and low stakes. Students write answers on mini white boards and hold up. Answers could also be given orally or just written as a list in books. English to French too hard? Do the powerpoint backwards! I use my clicker to change slides quickly. These are ones I’ve used with my own classes. There is a foundation (or easier) version and a higher (or harder) version. I use this activity again and again with the same slides (they get better at it). It’s a starter or a good time filler if you have a few minutes and want to get some energy back in the room. I do 10 minutes worth and then stop wherever I got to (or it gets boring). I use the same one for year 9, 10 and 11. It’s not pretty but it’s effective.

French GCSE worksheet on topic of homeless (social problems). Aim is to use the example paragraphs to complete a Higher level translation into French. Spot the difference activity where students compare similar paragraph about homeless people, highlight the differences between the paragraphs and complete a comprehension activity on each picking out the main points. Students then use elements from different paragraphs (plus a small amount of prior knowledge!) to translate a similar passage from English to French.

Revision booklet for Allez 1 Unit 3 Autour de Moi

(0)
Six pages of revision that I prepared for my year 7 students to use independently. We are using the textbook Allez and our upcoming assessment will rely heavily on Unit 3 with some vocabulary from the first two units thrown in. The revision booklet covers vocabulary, sentences and translation. There is a Foundation GCSE style writing activity with support down the left- hand side of the page. This booklet would be ideal for a cover lesson. There is also a version with the answers.

(0)
A collection of work sheets on the topic of holidays (where I go, what I take) and then past holidays with an emphasis on the perfect tense 8 sheets (plus one Foundation version for differentiation) Sentence builders, narrow reading, improving a text to support Higher writing For me the idea was to teach the perfect tense phrases as chunks of vocabulary THEN follow up with a grammar explanation

No et Moi model essay It’s question 10.1 from November 2021 paper I wrote the essay myself to share with my students / follow up some recent mock exams we have done. I’ll use some textivate exercises to play with it and do some translation on it too.

Spanish worksheet on topic of describing friends
madcatladymadcatlady

Spanish worksheet on topic of describing friends

(0)
Easy Spanish worksheet to support students writing a short paragraph describing a friend, including desde hace and a description. Starts with vocabulary to fill in then works on sentences on the first sheet. On the second sheet there is an example paragraph with a gapped translation and phrases to find which will support students in writing their own version. This scaffolded sheet should support students to work from words up to a paragraph with minimal teacher input so could be used for cover, homework or simply for when you need students to be able to work independently in class. I made the sheet for my Foundation GCSE class (who need support and don’t like too much challenge) but it could be used with confident near beginners too.
