The final section can be set as a research project for homework if wished.

Worksheet - Traditional Christmas Regional Celebrations in France - KS5

Excellent resource, can be used as 1-2 lessons depending on ability of group and how much time you wish to spend on cultural exploration of festive traditions. Text is taken from radins.com and is titled 'Noël en France : Noël typique et traditions régionales'. Link to article is included on worksheet. The article compares festive traditions in Alsace/Lorraine and Provence. It has been very slightly adapted and is split into paragraphs for ease of reading and discussion. Questions ask students to consider what type of text they are reading, then to match ten words highlighted in text to the correct description to develop language (for example 'Le Réveillon - le 24 décembre). Third and final exercise is six questions contrasting and comparing traditions in both regions, linking to culinary traditions, Père Fouettard / Père Noël and nativity scenes amongst others. Fully differentiated - two comprehensive vocabulary tables are provided to support learners who would benefit. A great lesson, genuinely interesting, and a fun way to include KS5 students in Christmas fun whilst still challenging their linguistic and cultural knowledge! I learned a few things making it! Next step could be for students to research and present to the class how Christmas is celebrated in other parts of the Francophone world. A great time saver, took three hours to make! Article and questions are one file, answers to all of the questions is the second. Could also be used for high-achieving KS4 class.

French Christmas Lesson - KS3 + KS4 - Vocabulary, traditions and games

Excellent resource, perfect for KS3 and KS4 to introduce / re-cap French Christmas vocabulary (une renne, un bonhomme de neige and so on) and discuss Christmas and New Year traditions. Fully differentiated with 'Want more', 'Challenge' and 'Want support' options for students, including extension questions linking to reading comprehension and Word Bank to support lower ability learners. Fully animated with all answers and notes under each slide to give overview of each activity. A huge time saver, took a whole afternoon to make! Lesson begins by asking students to work out Christmas vocabulary. Emphasis on independent learning. A game is then played, either holding up cards or writing the correct letter of the image that corresponds to the given word on a mini-whiteboard. Reading comprehension on French Christmas traditions follows, then a game of Pictionary and a Treasure Hunt review to finish to re-cap vocabulary. Reading comprehension offers great opportunity to discuss cultural differences, including food (for example foie gras, British culinary traditions that the French wouldn't usually eat, for example mince pies) and similarities. There are two fully prepared reading texts and teacher can select which one would be more appropriate for group. Both are also included on worksheet, either for teacher to delete one as appropriate before printing, or to give both to students and allow them to select their option. The more challenging text asks students to consider traditions at New Year too, and draws upon grammatical knowledge (imperfect tense, verb synonyms, direct object pronouns). The simpler text uses simpler language, is shorter and is split into two sections to help students with understanding. Great fun for the students, they're working independently and assimilating cultural knowledge, and really enjoyable to teach!
