Lesson PowerPoint - Le Café Français Role-play

A lesson building on food and drink vocabulary, asking students to create their own role-play in Le Café Français! Fully animated with all answers and step-by-step approach through different activities. Full example of role-play given for students to build on. A great lesson, especially if you can provide your class with some props (aprons, plastic food, paper plates, something small to dress up in)!
My Teamwork Self Review - Worksheet

My Teamwork Self Review - Worksheet

(0)
A useful worksheet to use following partner or group work on a project, asking students to reflect honestly on their teamwork skills and identify an area for improvement. Two sheets of A4 in total, guiding students through types of behaviour that may have hampered their efforts, identify the qualities that are desirable in a group situation, recognise if there were leaders in their group, and provide advice for their group and the teacher for next time. A Plenary Triangle completes the reflection, asking students to identify one positive area of their group work, one positive area of their presentation and one area to improve next time. Much more effective than just providing teacher feedback! Very insightful to use with students to help train them into excellent team members.

Great resource, providing a template in the shape of a jigsaw piece for students to introduce themselves.

Students asked to complete sentences to provide basic information about themselves including their name, age, nationality, birthday, family, favourite colour and sport. Template can be amended as teacher wishes. Makes a brilliant display for the start of term, simple and very personal to students. Helps them to get to know each other too!

Display / Activity - French labels for classroom objects

(0)
Three pages of French vocabulary for classroom objects. Size 50 text and neatly arranged into boxes to print, laminate and blu-tack to different areas of classroom. Excellent for support during lessons that are taught in target language (provides reference for example for the request 'Ferme la porte s'il te plaît'), and also broadens linguistic horizons of learners being surrounded by TL in normal classroom. Can also be used as an activity for younger learners. Students in pairs or in small groups are given five minutes to translate and categorise words (lots of possibilities - by gender, by objects that touch the floor etc.). Excellent to generate discussion regarding articles and difference between French and English. Students then timed to carefully and silently blu-tack correct label (without referring to translation) to correct part of classroom. Each team starts on 10 points. 5 points awarded for each correct, careful and silent placement of word. 30 bonus points awarded for the quietest and most sensible team. Share points system and Success Criteria, and ask students to generate their own rules to manage game before beginning (for example remember to walk not run).

First lesson of the year - Everything you need! - French

(0)
Excellent first lesson of the year, comprehensively covering slide-by-slide all that you need your new class to know in an accessible and fun way. Helps you to get to know your students, their learning preferences and personalities, and helps them to get to know each-other too, setting them up for some great learning. Also gets you off to a brilliant start with your expectations through a whole-class ‘Partnership Agreement’ that they create and sign. I use this template every year with every class that I teach and it always works brilliantly. They have a lot of fun, as do you, and you also get all of the bits sorted that you need to without missing anything out (an overview of the year, books, seating plan etc.), which is easily done at the start of a busy term. Recommended especially for new teachers. Clear instructions on each slide and places for you to insert your own information. 15 slides in total: 1. Resources you need for the lesson. 2. Space to insert your seating plan. 3. Date, title, LO, starter slide. 4. Our Partnership Agreement slide. 5. Expectations / building on slide before. 6. ‘Mon cahier d’exercice’ slide. 7. Getting to know each other - The two truths game. 8. As above - teacher’s answers. 9. My promise to you (what you will do as a teacher to help their learning). 10. Raffle tickets and how they work, if you decide to use to reinforce positive behaviour. 11. Our lessons - overview of the number of lessons each week, report and Parents’ Evening dates and topics. 12. Help me to understand your learning activity. 13. Examples of feedback from activity above. 14. As before. 15. Lotto game!

Only Connect - French Game / Starter / Plenary - Basic vocabulary

(0)
Excellent resource, based on the popular BBC show 'Only Connect'. Works well as a starter, plenary or as a game to review learning. Students are asked to apply critical thinking skills to make links between fourteen different French items of vocabulary in each game. The first game focuses on colours, days of the week, numbers 0-5 and 21-30. The second game uses vocabulary linked to types of transport, clothes, places in town and animals. The third game is based on vocabulary linked to the weather, body parts, members of the family and different drinks. Instructions for teachers on each slide, fully animated with all answers and hyperlinks. Fully differentiated. Slides at the end of the PowerPoint are set up to input own vocabulary too. Can be used in lots of different ways! Always great fun!
French Christmas Lesson - KS3 + KS4 - Vocabulary, traditions and games

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

(1)
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!

The reading text is taken from 'Noi parliamo italiano' (link on worksheet). It has been slightly adapted and split into small paragraphs for ease of translation and discussion. The Challenge option asks students to consider traditions at New Year too. Great fun for the students, they're working independently and assimilating cultural knowledge, and really enjoyable to teach! Two games to finish - teacher or student choice! Pictionary on one slide and a Treasure Hunt searching for 15 gold coins and a treasure chest on another. Both designed to link to vocabulary at the start of the lesson!

Fully animated with all answers, clear directions for students and support for teacher in Notes section of slides if required. Challenge options included within activities to extend HA.

Activity 2- Match the Mystery Country's national dishes to the English descriptions and the images if possible. Activity 3 - Use the French clues provided to locate the Mystery Country on the map. Activity 4 - Use the map and the images to work out where the Mystery Country might be.

Lesson is reviewed using a Plenary Triangle, asking students to reflect on one thing that they knew already, three things that they've learned during the lesson, and one thing that they would like to know more about. The final section can be set as a research project for homework if wished. Great to fit into modules about Travel and Tourism, food, song, cultural similarities and differences, geography, or as a filler lesson before a holiday. A very popular lesson that always goes down a storm! Also available with Mauritius as the mystery country.

Lesson PowerPoint - European Day of Languages - French

(1)
Great lesson, introducing France and the French language to learners. Created for Primary, but easily adapted to Secondary with a host of suggestions for further discussion, analysis and reflection provided. 40 slides in total. A huge time saver! Ideas for Secondary extension include cross-curricular links to: History (how were French regions affected for example during WW2, the Vichy government etc.); Politics (where in France is currently experiencing a surge in right-wing popularity? Why?); Geography (environmental impacts of tourism, how is it currently managed, could it be more effective?); Arts, Theatre, Music (funding, is it comparable to the UK? The policies of André Malroux and their impact); and the French Language (how is it protected, do other languages have similar institutions? Search Académie française). Slides 1 - 11 ask students to work out the country, linking to European Day of Languages 2016. Beautiful photographic images are provided to support student reflection (monuments, architecture, food, spring, summer, autumn and winter in France, artists - Monet and Matisse, the Tour de France and typical French shops). Slides 12 - 15 introduce the geography of France through maps and facts and figures (position within Europe, number of regions, number of people who speak the language). Slides 16 - 38 introduce French vocabulary linking to the images that students have just seen. Seasons, colours, numbers 1-12 and basic greetings. Slides 39 - 40 set students challenge of completing their worksheet within time limit (given by teacher) and to see how many new words they can incorporate into their day. Two song suggestions (You Tube) provided on last slide for younger learners. * Links to Assembly on European Day of Languages and Word document bundle for worksheets that link to activities if helpful.

Display / Printable Booklet - French Verb Tables, Opinions and Connectives

(0)
Huge time saver! Incredibly useful! Took a day to make! Can be printed as individual A4 pages (or blown up into A3) for French 'Word Wall' display. Very useful to direct students to for help with their own work and to encourage independent learning and flow. Can also be printed as an A4 or A5 booklet for students to have an individual copy for reference in class and at home. Created as when directing students to dictionaries to help source their own verb conjugations, confusion would often ensue as no English translations / pointers on when to use each tense were given to help students who were unsure. Really helps to drive independence and so helpful when teaching as time can be spent supporting LA / pushing HA when circulating, rather than having to constantly be translating verbs to help students continue with their work. 30 pages in total. Verb tables - 24 pages! Present, perfect, imperfect, near future, simple future and conditional tenses for 12 key verbs in French and in English. Definition of when to use each tense also given on each verb table to help student understanding. Connectives - 3 pages. English and French translations given. Separated into different tables of connectives to use with any tense, the present tense, the perfect tense, the imperfect tense and finally the near future, simple future and conditional tenses. Opinions - 1 page. Postive and negative opinions given in French and in English. Ways to introduce points of view also given in table to help students extend and vary communication.
