Welchen Tag haben wir heute? Wie spät ist es?


Ein gutes Jahr!

I would like to say a big well done to all my classes this year. I have been really pleased with the effort you have put into your lessons and I hope that you have enjoyed learning German this year.

Year 9
Even if you are not carrying on with a language next year, you have learnt lots of useful language and some great life skills. Don't forget that these skills will come in handy if you decide to take up another language later on- maybe at Sixth Form. I wish you all the best for your future studies. Of course, I will still be teaching some of you next year if you have opted for German. Don't forget to check out the KS4 blog- Spitze!

Have a good summer and come back relaxed and ready to learn!
In September there will be more blog competitions, games, info and even a new blog name!

Bis bald!

Below are a couple of examples of my year 9 class' first attempts at using Goanimate. They used the website to produce cartoon strips on the topic of invitations to the cinema. I was really pleased with what they managed to produce in just one lesson.

GoAnimate.com: Dracula and Frankenstein :D

Wordle task

My Year 7 class have been preparing for their assessments. I asked them to use Wordle to make word clouds from their presentations.


I have published some of the results below. I am sure they would like you to comment on their work. I think the results were great. However, I would like to remind you all that spelling is important!

Well done, Year 7! Gut gemacht!
