I am currently a Head of Modern Languages in a large secondary school in the North East Of England. I also work with the local University with PGCE MFL students, an area of my work I thoroughly enjoy. I am passionate about teaching and learning, and have a particular interest in the teaching of grammar and of literary texts to develop reading, writing and listening skills. I am currently working on developing a range of resources to support the study of Le Petit Nicolas and the series of books.

Fou de musique Studio 3 Rouge

(4)
To consolidate Fou de musique and Fête de la musique from Studio 3. Revision of perfect tense and complex sentences and word order issues in French. Lots of practice on verbs , past tense in particular, practice on complex structures using ’ after having + past participles ’ and also a strong focus on French word order when talking about types of music, types of concerts etc… The text can be exploited in may ways, I have written myself, used a class and paired reading, translations etc…

My plans for the future - French GCSE

(0)
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.

GCSE and HAP activities on a disastrous day at school

(0)
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.
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.

Use of DOP and pronouns in French. using ' dodgy English'

(0)
This is a resource that I created to support my year 10 through the use of DOP. They are used to ' dodgy English' and I am sharing this as they enjoyed the activities and gave me good feedback ( it has helped them massively and they are now confident with those ), especially the translation which they used a learning and consolidating activity. I have in my free resources a Power Point you can also access to teach the initial stages and the words for the needed DOPS for these activities.

The pluperfect workout in French in 4 easy steps

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

(0)
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 ).

designed to support KS4 students, can be used as a checklist to check work is up to standards and target grades. I have used it as a learning homework too.

Assessment, marking and feedback for PGCE students and NEW teachers

I presented this to a PGCE MFL cohort and have used this over the past two academic years. Evaluations form students have come out very positive ( backed up with real life examples of marking and back up by practice marking activities and debates ) so thought I'd share for those delivering similar sessions or INSETS. Take a look and adapt to your own audience.
