German GCSE Survival Kit - Pupil Resource

German GCSE Survival Kit - Pupil Resource

This is a guide for any pupil taking GCSE German. I wanted a small 'survival kit' guide that could slot into a pupil's folder or book that they can reference whenever they are attempting a writing task. This is specifically designed for the new GCSE and I wanted to set the bar at a grade 5. Basically, if a pupil follows the guide accurately, they could achieve a 5/6 in the new GCSE. I have printed it as A5. On one side there are easily useable phrases in the present, pas and future, time phrases, connectives, opinions and comparisons. On the reverse is an example Foundation 16 mark question with an exemplar answer. With this is a "foundation checklist" which pupils can also do whenever they are completing a writing. Show your pupils how you can use both sides to ensure a 5 at GCSE. Enjoy!

5 Trap Door Games

5 Trap Door Games

Here are 5 trap door games which are related to 4 different topics: Media, TV, Friends, Holiday and Pocket Money. This activity can take up to 10 minutes and promotes spontaneous speaking and listening. Pupils hide their sheet from their partner and mark 1 of the 3 options for each trap door. Pupils take it in turns to read from the start of the passage. The aim of the game is to get to the end of the passage. They imagine that, where there are multiple choice options in the sentence, this is a trap door. In order to past the trap door, they have to guess what their partner has chosen. They should mark if they get it right as they have to start from the beginning each time. When there is an opportunity to guess, afterwards pupils start from the beginning. Enjoy!
