This resource contains a range of vocabulary and quality discussion questions for each section of the novel.

Session 2 - Pupils discuss the pages read with their group and the teacher. Session 3 - Pupils complete a follow-up task based on their book to demonstrate further understanding. When I have used this, I have printed a few pages of the document to share between pupils in the reading group. For Week 1, Session 1 - pupils use page 1 of the document. For Week 1, Session 2 - pupils use page 2 of the document. For Week 1, Session 3 - pupils have completed follow-up tasks in their jotters.

French Weather Pairs/Snap/Matching Game

French Weather Pairs/Snap/Matching Game

(0)
This is a card game to support learners with French weather vocabulary. It could be used as a pairs/pelmanism game, snap game or a simple matching game. Cards have reverse side (which says “Quel temps fait-il?”) so please print double sided if you wish to make use of this. From my experience it can be useful to have the reverse side to prevent any observant pupils having a sneaky read of the card when placed upside down!! My resource comes as a PDF ready to print, as well as a Word document so you can edit as you wish. The spacing of the cards should be correct so this will save you a lot of work! I hope you find this resource useful.

Discussions rapides en français - Quick chats in French

This activity can be used to practise basic conversational French once pupils have learned how to ask and answer questions. It could also be used for revision purposes. It covers things like name, age, where you live, brothers and sisters, hobbies, hair colour, eye colour, birthdays and favourite colours. Pupils take it in turns to ask and each other questions and record each of their responses on their sheets.

I have included the activity sheet and a help sheet I made up to support some learners - both are in Word documents so you can edit if you wish, as well as a PDF. I hope you find this resource useful.
