Work and Education Bundle - Opinions on School Uniform, School Rules and Chores

(0)
A bundle of five slides, linked to the Work and Education module of the GCSE course. The first slide is a poster of rules from a French school. Students are asked to translate as many as possible a given time limit. Challenge is to think of any others that are not mentioned that students would expect to see in their own school. Forms a good basis for cultural discussion (for example in terms of uniform or how rules are phrased). The second slide presents two tables (24 items of vocabulary), drawing links between rules and uniform. The conditional tense is introduced alongside negatives and could easily be extended to forming the conditional and other negative forms. The third slide introduces positive and negative opinions about uniform, asking students to translate and categorise those given before forming their own for a debate / discussion on the fourth slide. The fifth slide lists excuses regarding household chores, asking students to translate those given and think of their own.

Worksheet - Traditional Christmas Regional Celebrations in France - KS5

(1)
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.

Feedback template
prof_de_francaisprof_de_francais

Feedback template

(0)
Personalised feedback template, designed to be easily adapted for large groups. Features a 'What Went Well', 'Even Better If' and 'Try This' section, designed to consolidate or advance understanding. Feedback can be typed into sections and some sentences copied and pasted if appropriate to save time when marking. Sheets can then be printed and glued underneath work (either by teacher or by student in the following lesson). Students answer their 'Try This' in the 'My Response' section, and then write a brief comment (or draw a happy, medium or sad face if they prefer) to let teacher know how confident they are feeling with their understanding. This has proved incredibly useful on a number of occasions and students have often said how much they appreciate actually being able to quietly ask for a bit more help if they need it. Some students have also used it to disclose Safeguarding issues - all in all a beneficial little space to note anything down if required. It is obviously very important to read and respond to their 'Try this' question, especially if they have trusted you and opened up about needing a little more support. 'Try this' question can simply have a 1, 2 or 3 written next to it to save time, and then these questions displayed on board when students are reflecting on feedback if easier. Slides are a blank template, easily adaptable, and an feedback form filled in as an example.
