French Weather in Months and Seasons
This French weather resource combines French weather phrases with the months of the year and seasons to enable pupils to extend their conversation about the weather. It can be used as a stand alone resource, but it is also designed to follow on from the basic French Weather and French Months of the Year resources that can be found in the Language Magnet shop.
The first slide revises 12 weather phrases, followed by a slide for each month of the year showing a different weather phrase. For example, "En janvier il neige". Once pupils are confident with the months of the year, they can apply the same structure to the seasons, for example, "En hiver il fait mauvais". Note that the preposition for "In spring" changes to "Au printemps". The presentations provide full audio support for non-specialist language teachers and the teacher can click on the sentence structures either before or after the pupils speak, to assess learning.
The presentations are accompanied by two differentiated versions of a writing activity sheet to support different stages of learning.
There are two sets of weather, months and season cards for students to practise speaking and listening. One set of cards has the visual prompts only and the other set provides the key words and phrases, to enable pupils to create their own sentences.
A colourful set of 9 display cards for the seasons and weather is also provided with this resource to remind pupils of the language structures that they are learning.
