Once again I have collated some great ideas from the Facebook group “Languages in Primary schools” !
- New video from me in 2021: click here for a 15-minute lesson on 14th July based on the Primary French Project resources. Click here for a copy of the presentation by itself. To find out more about the amazing Primary French Project resources (a free scheme of work suitable for non-French speakers), register on IF Profs and click here… or ask me for more info!
- Extra in 2021: links from LiPS again that Negin Sedghi collated – Euroclub , 1 jour 1 question , tête à modeler , blog FLE , Eiffel Tower template , le 14 juillet French CLIL video and The French Revolution in a nutshell .
- If you want to make a rosette, click here for a video I recommend with UKS2 and KS3 (from age 9 onwards); for younger children I would just keep it simple and make a rosette as shown here on tête à modeler ; even simpler with 3 circles of coloured paper, and you can add some strips of paper hanging down, making a French flag. I will make a video describing what I mean and create templates… for 11th November, so look out for it!
- Above is a photo of a picture of the Eiffel Tower and fireworks on 14th July; I drew it whilst watching this video with my class. I must say I am pleased with myself as drawing does not come easy to me!
- The other photo is of the book I have treated myself to. One of the playlets is called “Vive la révolution !” and the children and I truly had great fun with it! I recommend it! Click here to check it out on the Brilliant Publications website.
- Clare Seccombe’s great Changes Phase blog is this time my 1st port of call for links to her favourite ideas and resources including craft activities;
- Here are 3 presentations which I have used in the past: one is my own Bastille Day mine and the others I am not 100% where I got them from, sorry Bastille Day and Le_Quatorze_Juillet;
- the PDF fete nationale card was kindly shared by Victoria Bruff who has made cards with her pupils in the past; they have added some cute small French bunting inside them too;
- You could show an extract from the défilé de 2019 and the feux d’artifice 2019;
- For vocabulary and background information, Helen Gibson shared this link on Frenchtoday.com;
- Here is a very cute word search from Sylvie Bartlett Rawlings;
- Euroclub Schools is always well received;
- Check out Emma Moo’s Bastille Day history lesson – I can’t share the IWB resources though as I don’t have an IWB, sorry!
Thank you to all who have shared their ideas in the past! I hope it is of use to some more of you in the future.
Please add your own favourite links in the comments so we can all keep sharing!
