MFL Talk boardgames 3 and 4 - Leisure and Holidays

Gameboards for holidays and leisure. Print them out in colour A3 size. You will need counters and dice. There are suggestions on how to use them. I have uploaded boards for the other GCSE topics too. Very good for independent learning, encouraging spontaneous speaking (group talk) and GCSE revision. DO let me know if you think it needs altering in any way.

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.

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.

MFL Verbs & Tenses flowers

(15)
I use these to teach regular present tense verb patterns to beginners, but the flowers can be used for any tense that is made of a stem and ending. I have displays of flowers in all of the language classrooms. You can reduce the size of the flowers and print multiple copies on a page. Pupils can then make a collage to represent all of the verb groups or tenses they know.

I have these printed A3 size and laminated and the students can refer to them when speaking in spontaneous debates in class. They have been very positive about them and far from slowing the pace, it enables them to keep talking!

er verbs - all you need to know

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.
