GCSE French - using complex structures

PowerPoint and accompanying workpack designed to encourage pupils to use a variety of complex structures in their spoken and written French. An extremely useful reference and revision tool for pupils to use as part of their exam preparation. The presentation is designed so that teachers can deliver a set of structures at a time in any order they please. You could also upload it to your VLE for pupils to access independently. Please do let me know if you spot any mistakes.

The Perfect Tense Card Race

The Perfect Tense Card Race

Print out the cards and laminate them. Pupils work in pairs or small groups and race against each other to form the perfect tense with the cards after reading the infinitive and the subject from the PowerPoint. Good element of competition and really highlights how much (or little!) they actually know. Includes avoir and être verbs and agreement. Can be easily adapted to suit your requirements too.

Spanish -ar verbs conjugation card race - revision of all tenses

Spanish -ar verbs conjugation card race - revision of all tenses

This is another of my verb card races. You need to print off some sets of the cards, cut them out and laminate them. Pupils then race each other to pick up the cards to match what they see on the screen. I have mine move their cards to an answer board to stop them from copying others and then you can award points to whoever has the right cards on display. It encourages a good sense of competition, can be used again and again, and makes verb drills fun. (Requires knowledge of present, preterite, near future, future and imperfect tenses)

Vocabulary Test tracker

Vocabulary Test tracker

This is a vocabulary mark book for test results (we use it for grammar and vocabulary tests but it can be used for any subject) which can monitor test results, retests and ranks the class for each test to encourage competition. I have included instructions on how to use the tracker. The file is protected to stop people from erasing formulae but the password is MFL. If you come up with a great update - do let me know. I know it isn't perfect!

GCSE French complex structures- the A* cake

GCSE French complex structures- the A* cake

This is a presentation designed to encourage GCSE pupils to use a variety of complex structures in their written and spoken controlled assessments. The worksheet asks them to build up lists of different kinds of grammatical structures (there is a honeycomb of different examples to start with) before embarking on their own creations. I asked mine to work with their AQA word lists. Apologies to Heston Blumenthal. All feedback gratefully received.
