Mes vacances et ma passion-Les Alpes

Mes vacances et ma passion-Les Alpes

I tried to select a nice topic and theme to teach and revise various skills and grammatical aspects . It links to Expo3 ( la Normandie ) rouge with the discovery of an area but I jaust added more on this so students get to compare areas and see how varied France is. I will add more through a different power point and add worksheets , this is taking ages .... hope it helps. I used the interactive quiz with the gap fill as a little starter and introduction about the Alps before showing the Power Point.

Fun with French words. Creative ideas for listening, speaking and writing. Primary and Secondary

Fun with French words. Creative ideas for listening, speaking and writing. Primary and Secondary

On this presentation, you will find ideas to help your students move on from using single words to building sentences. You can adapt the slides to suit. There are ideas to help identifying differences with j'ai/ j'aime and more in sentences to support listening. You can use Slides 1 and 2 to train your students to pronounnce cognates accurately, then develop and set sentence challenges with mini whiteboards or in pairs. Simple, but effective, tried and tested in both primary and secondary activities.

Cendrillon- Imparfait avec un conte de fées-

Hopefully this will help in motivating students who can find it hard to understand the concept of story teeling/ naarative, it did help my y9. I used the card sorts to support ( the sngle words being the starter then used the phrases for sequencing to see if they could reconstruct the story. Could also read and ask students to show you the correct phrase .

Gap fill and error correcting : verbs in the present and reflexive verbs French grammar practice.

Gap fill and error correcting : verbs in the present and reflexive verbs French grammar practice.

This activity is designed to help students to develop their expertise in using the verbs to have and to be in French with correct forms, and to memorise and practise using correct pronouns for difficult reflexive verbs. the red is to support students to find the errors and the green indicates the subject so students can be encouraged to use these as a clue for both the verb formation and the gap fill for the work on reflexive verbs. There should be a fine balance between challenge and support for all abilities in this activity but feedback and comments are more than welcome.

Year 6 MFL Induction

I created this Power Point for an hour with the year 6 Primary pupils coming for their induction day. My aim was to work on skills and the resource was shared with all staff involved in MFL. The feedback given by staff and pupils was positive so I am hoping it will help others now.

Simple resource to support students in understanding how to build this tense. The document can be easily adapted to the level of the students using this resource. I have left some clues for the conjugations of to have and to be spellings, but they can just be removed for further challenge.

Y7German Beginners. Using basic verbs talking about self asking questions

Y7German Beginners. Using basic verbs talking about self asking questions

Can be used to develop confidence in reading and writing extended passages but can be used to support speaking , especially asking questions using the 'du' subject with 'st' ending. I normally aim at having all students to have memorised the main basic questions in German using correct pronunciation and verb endings very early on and this presentation has worked really well so far with my German beginners (Y7 ).

My plans for the future - French GCSE

My plans for the future - French GCSE

This resource fits in any module, covering the topic of jobs and plans for the future for KS4 French, but could also be used for students in higher ability groups in Year 9. It contains a Power point and a full lesson plan, as well as resources for differentiation which can be tweaked and amended as necessary. The lesson was observed and judged ' outstanding' so I hope it is useful to colleagues.

Planet Facebook Reading and Grammar comprehension

Planet Facebook Reading and Grammar comprehension

Based on the module Planet Facebook in Studio 3. I have created a slightly longer text on use of social networking sites. This helps learning and understanding of regular verbs and gives opportunities to learn and identify structures for use of own vocabulary when writing and speaking about this topic.

This will be suitable for High ability students at KS3 and KS4 to develop higher level complex structures, reading skills, speaking skills and memory. This suits the topic of school and education and I have attached a list of suggested activities, all of them I have used myself and have led to some rather creative writing and spoken passages from my year 10.

Grammar starters for French

Here you will find examples of some of my favourite starters that I use with all the year groups I teach. Once down loaded, you may just adapt these to your topics. They have proved effective and also once you have the idea and the template, you get minimum preparation for maximised learning and consolidation. Feedback appreciated as always. Thank you
