The hardest part was sitting on our hands!

While the rest of the school are hard at work with end of term exams, the primary class had great fun making this film:
…exam hell continues for the first half of the week, except the primaries,they’ll be looking at a well-known nursery tale, can you guess which one? (clue: famous clothing, basket, furry grey animal, old lady….)
The rest of the week we’ll be correcting the exams, and looking at how to improve learning strategy – the term isn’t finished yet!
The 3eme will be studying water sports and activities.
The 4eme will all be teaching in class – I’m too tired after the exams!
The 5eme will be looking at ways to raise money for our school charity project – more about that later.
The 6eme will continue learning about shops and directions.
As for me, I’d better get on with this:
As I lay in bed this morning dreaming about correcting exams, Harry (one of my cats) jumped on the bed to lick my nose as he does every morning.
I whispered in his ear – » Put the kettle on, Harry, kettle, go on, good cat ».
No luck, Harry just lay down on top of me a went to sleep.
So, I decided to call in the experts – my pupils.
How can I train Harry to put the kettle on?

Your end of term exams are coming, so here is some advice about how to revise effectively.
Every class has the same exam:
Part 1 – Listening – you will listen to the CD and write the answers on your exam paper.
Part 2 – Vocabulary – you will be tested on 60 words that come from vocab lists 1-11
Part 3 – ICD – you will do exercises on every ICD we have done, for most classes this is ICD 4-11.
Part 4 – Expression – you will write about a subject studied in class, ex. presentations, descriptions, hobbies, films, depending on your class.
You have a lot of exams so it is important to be organised and DON’T PANIC!!
* Revise 30 minutes the take a break for 2-5 minutes.
*Reread your lessons and vocab lists.
*Ask if there is anything you don’t understand.
*Do the checklist at the end of the chapter in the workbook – if you can do this you can pass the exam easily.
*Do the exercises in the book, at the end of the chapter and in the grammar bank.
*Ask for revision exercises if you want more.
*Draw a spidergram of what you have learnt.
*Write your vocab on cards with the translation on the back.
*Draw a picture of every word you don’t know.
* Use mnemonics to remember – SANV = sans anglais, NUL VICTOIRE!
* Do exercises & games on the internet, ex. anglaisfacile.com.
* Download apps to revise, ex. Grammar in Use.
*Get plenty of sleep.
* Do lots of sport.
* Eat healthy food, not junk food.
* Explain to someone what you have learnt and revised every day.
*Buy some chocolate for Mrs Harris! – This might not improve your result but at least we will have something nice to eat while I help you revise!
