French en ville in town improve my writing KS3 or KS4

(0)
A basic text on en ville / in town in French with too much repetition. Pupils are given a range of alternative expressions to re-draft the piece of writing and improve it. This activity used to be called Pimp my French when the TV show Pimp my Ride was popular. You can give pupils a "budget" - a very precise number of words they have to use to deliver an improved piece of writing to the client. Uses connectives, verb + infinitive, opinions.

Table manners and Bread in France

(0)
A keep talking / paragraph builder for talking about table manners and the importance of handling bread correctly in France. Pupils can watch the YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yRkWCqcoms&list=PL2u4oHkid_n0kAt6WeDWE22QkqG3BNUmF&index=3 first, and then use this sheet to compare France and England and different situations. Example sentences: In France you can use your bread to wipe up the sauce on your plate but you shouldn’t put the bread on the table upside down. In England it is not polite to wipe your plate but you can dunk a biscuit in your tea.

At the Beach - stories (French)

(0)
This is designed to be done in Word on the computer (or as a google doc) but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t print it out and ask pupils to do it on paper. Telling stories about what happened when you went to the beach. Scaffolded with parallel texts and with pupils making their own glossary. Opinions and reasons, imperfect and perfect tenses - no prior knowledge necessary. I use it with Year 8.

Oli et Bigflo - Plus tard

(3)
Lesson on song Plus Tard by Oli et Bigflo to go with their video on YouTube. Tasks to make the song accessible. Not comprehension testing tasks. The link to the sound only version of the song doesn’t work anymore, but the video link still does. Just play the https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UgsqtaXiwI without projecting it for the first activity! Don’t rush for the pupils to understand everything from the first activity! That’s what the rest of the lesson is for!!!
Street View Mystery 2020 Vesoul - V Everett

Street View Mystery 2020 Vesoul - V Everett

(1)
A mystery that will take you exploring the streets of Vesoul on the trail of a master of disguise whose ambitions are plaguing the town. The characters will talk to you in French, but by answering the easy questions, you will pick up the important clues and know where to go next. Click on the links or scan the QR code to listen to what they tell you. Many many thanks to everyone who has recorded a character! There is a powerpoint video tutorial to get you started. You can print out the document as a 24 page booklet, and use your computer to explore the town on Google Streetview. Or you can just open the document on your computer at the same time as Streetview and switch between windows. Let me know on twitter @veverettmfl how you are finding it. I recommend you try it first before using it with pupils. Use it lots. It will go out of date as soon as the Google Street View self driving car takes new photos of Vesoul! NB Google Street View has now been updated. But if you look in the comments at the bottom of this blog post, you can find a link to videos of the route so you can still do the Mystery. https://whoteacheslanguages.blogspot.com/2021/05/the-french-street-view-mysteries.html
