French GCSE Full Lesson – Les maladies


Based on AQA GCSE (first exams 2018) Theme 2 – Local, national, international and global areas of interest, this full lesson (or possible series of lessons) covers the sub-theme of ‘social issues – healthy/unhealthy living’. The lesson is based around texts from some of my French GCSE resources (including my reading and writing workbooks, and WJEC role play workbook) and is ideal for both foundation and higher GCSE students either to introduce the language needed for this topic, or as a revision lesson in Year 11. The content could also be suitable for a good Key Stage 3 class, particularly Year 9 students who will be doing higher GCSE with target grades of 6-9.

The download includes:

  • PowerPoint of the whole lesson – includes vocabulary games and activities, reading, translation, writing and role play
  • PDF worksheets with vocabulary, grammar explanations and activities to be printed and handed out to students
  • Lesson plan explaining the PPT and different tasks and games

The PowerPoint is deliberately very plain, with white backgrounds and Calibri font throughout. It should therefore be compatible with all computers and easily adaptable for different settings and teacher preference for fonts, colours, etc.

While the lesson is broadly based on the AQA specification (first exams 2018), it can be used with other exam boards with very little adaptation needed.
