Teacher knowledge - language points
Pupils needing extra support: working in a group with an adult, who can read and scribe for the group so that children can focus on verbal recall.
Pupils working at greater depth: challenge to use connectives and plurals and to place any adjectives of colour and size in the correct position within their sentences.
During the week
- Use page 3 of the Activity: What’s in the bag? for children to design their own ‘what’s in the bag’ logic puzzles.
- For display – write large labels attached to clear plastic bags pinned to the wall and see if children can add in the correct equipment (or use mini cards for display).
- Don’t forget to use your classroom instructions. A quick game of ‘Jacques a dit’ will warm you up for a French lesson, or end the day with a bit of French.
