This resource aims to revise the topics of family, descriptions, pets and colours. There is a reading comprehension created with questions and answers included. The questions are extended and can be differentiated as the latter ones are more difficult. The reading also allows students to revise and consolidate verbs. The students should then aim to produce a similar written text using that as a guide. A peer assessment sheet is also included which reminds students of what they need to include and sentence starters are included for each topic. This allows students to work independently to form their own paragraph and hints are given to use verbs and adjectives correctly. The student then uses this same sheet to peer mark another persons work and all the hints and sentence starters allow students to mark work carefully.

Using Peer Assessment in MFL

Using Peer Assessment in MFL

Peer assessment is a GREAT way to save timing marking and encourage students to think carefully about their work. This also gives students time to reflect on their mistakes and improve them. I have attached a few examples of peer assessment forms that I have used in my French/Spanish lessons. The forms can be adapted easily based on the topic you are teaching. I have used these forms these peer assessment forms in year 7 all the way up to year 11! Super easy to use for students and easy for teachers to instantly see what students have included/not included in their work and work on targets.
