    Have they done French for 2 years already? When I taught it we started with Hello my name is... how are you... type conversations. Then numbers, days of week, months of year, colours, animals. Didnt really get much further than that. For a first lesson I would ask them to tell YOU what they already know and you can take it from there. Maybe have a song ready to teach them, you should be able to find heads shoulders knees and toes somewhere on the internet.

    As cally1980 says, you absolutely need to find out what they have already done. For increasing your own confidence and ability, I would recommend these upskilling podcasts http://www.sunderlandschools.org/mfl-sunderland/resources-pr-fr-podcasts.htm which help you with pronunciation, grammar, intercultural understanding and pedagogy. I hope that the co-ordinator in your school has provided you with a scheme of work and that your SLT realise that you need to attend some training.

    Bonne chance!
     
  3. The medway plans for French are quite good - my PPA cover teacher uses them.
