French Top Trumps!

French students in Year 7 at Seven Kings are going mad for Top Trumps cards – in French!

Last week I was so pleased with my class. Their homework was to make a few top trumps cards about animals from the website below.  Then in class we practised big numbers before they got on and played!  It was brilliant how they figured out the info for themselves – reading and oral communication for a real and fun purpose I think!  Trouble is do I keep the cards as a memento or surrender them back to their owners???
