Assessment next week!
Just a reminder to my Year 8 students – you’re going to present to the class a prepared conversation about food and drink. This is about speaking, not reading from a script! You need to practise with your partner to try and make your conversation sound “natural”. You will be allowed a Post-it with some key words on to prompt you as you do this. I’ve added a link to the level criteria to remind you what you’re aiming for. Have a look at let me know if there’s anything that you’re not sure about.
Year 8 pupils have been looking at the Futuroscope website.
Futuroscope is a theme park in the Vienne departement of France, about 10km north of Poitiers. Click the image or go to www.futuroscope.com. There is an English version of the website – look for the flags in the top right.
It was opened in 1987, and the attractions are mainly based on multimedia, and audio-visual techniques, with a few “slide down the ramp and get wet” rides thrown in (have a look at the “Le Splash des Loustics” or “Nipper Dipper” video on the website).
If you were visiting Futuroscope, where would you go first?
The buildings, or pavillons at Futuroscope are part of the attraction. They are built of metal and glass and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes.
Which one do you like most?
After the lesson today, Year 8, what’s your favourite TV programme ?
Write a comment in French.
Use the question to help with the answer.
Make sure that you use accents in the correct places – you’ll need to use “é” four times.
Check the previous post about accent shortcuts for a bit of help.
By now you should have had a chance to look at some of the written work other people have done.
You won’t have seen all of the work, but here are some links to more of the storybirds.
Have a look at them and make a comment on this blog. Remember that all comments on this site are moderated and will not be published if I feel that they are going to cause offence to anyone. Don’t write anything you wouldn’t like your parents, or grandparents, to see!

This week pupils in Years 7 and 8 are going to be reviewing the work that they and their classmates have done this half term
Year 8 will be reading the work that has been produced for the task “Qu’est-ce que tu as fait le weekend dernier?” You will have the opportunity to comment on the work other people in the year group have done, and to reply to comments about your own work. Remember to be honest and constructive in your comments.
Year 7 pupils are going to be completing their descriptions of rooms in a house in draft. Remember that the focus was on use of prepositions! When the drafts are complete you’re going to pair up to edit your work.
The completed work is starting to come in now.
Have a look at some of these and let me know what you think!
