er verbs picture story

(43)
This is a little activity i give to my class after we have practised the present tense of regular er verbs. I give them the list of verbs and encourage them to create their story based around the verbs rather than the other way round. If you check their French before they draw the pictures they can provide the basis of a very colourful display.

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.
