Battleships game using near future (aller + infinitive). There are lots of battleship paiwork grids on frenchteacher. With this one students have to make up whole sentences and must not use the same one twice. You could use this from Y8 to easy Y10. Creative-mungus!
Video listening, advanced level. What is canna..is? (In case your school filtering system is averse to certain substances.) Linked to a 1jour1question video from Milan Presse with cartoons. Sentences to translate into French using transcription of the commentary. Fast but clear. Students could also take notes in English if you prefer.

Year 7/Primary resource to practise il y a, but mainly il n'y a pas de.... Short powerpoint presentation based on a picture of a 19th century classroom.

Video listening, intermediate level. Smartphones. This is from the Les Enfants du 21e siècle series on Youtube. The children talking are quite funny. The worksheet has notes to complete in French with a little oral/written follow-up.
