er verbs - all you need to know

(8)
This is just a reference sheet which I supply to my year 7 after having introduced -er verbs. It is visually more interesting than most things I found on the net. It also includes my verb flower (an idea I pinched from someone else years ago!). I have large coloured verb flowers stuck on the wall of my classroom.

GCSE role play revision games

(6)
This is a collection of my speaking board games which are ideal for independent work. They can be used for any language. They are ideal for GCSE role play revision, but can also be excellent preparation for the listening and reading examinations. There are some ideas on how to use the boards. You may like to give pupils dice and some counters, but you can also play with them when the board is projected on your whiteboards (to save printing costs).

Game for revision of AQA GCSE topics - I have uploaded boards for other topics too. I print these in colour on A3 and have them laminated. All you need are counters and dice. There are suggestions on how to use the game too. Very good for independent learning, encouraging spontaneous speaking (group talk) and GCSE revision. Do let me know if anything needs changing.

GCSE French complex structures- the A* cake

(69)
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.

A Christmas worksheet, fill in missing verbs.Pupils can be given the infinitives and told to work out what tenses they have to use. Alternatively, you could decide to give them no help at all and let them get inventive. You could of course give out the answers and get them to match the captions to the blank pictures. Apologies in advance for my frightful sense of humour. Blank version and suggested answers included.
