Thought I'd share this with everyone- very excited! Sad! Have been using a voice recorder for a long time in the 'language' classroom which has a USB so the children can hear themselves straightaway but have now purchased a Flip Video Recorder- yes I bought the pink one! It has a USB too so videos can be uploaded and watched straightaway too . Have been playing with it with my own children and have had lots of fun. At the moment they are selling… Continue

product and I was rather rude about it, but Katherine insisted I take a copy home to play with.
Well I did and I admit the kids liked it a lot; there… Continue

Hi I am at university studying to be a primary teacher. I am doing a research project on Mfl and am hoping some kind soul might be able to point me in the direction of some resources!
I am trying to find some videos/sound clips of French children talking about their daily life and/or celebrations that would be siutable to show to a Year 4 class?
Thanks for any help at all!

The attached PowerPoint slides are designed to practice numbers in French (though you could easily adapt them to Spanish or German). I made them in the hope of using them to reinforce the concept of number and be slightly more cognitively demanding in a mathematical manner while using the minimum language. (As ever, I am eternally grateful to Joe Dale
for showing me how to use triggers in PowerPoint slides in order to make these sorts of… Continue

Hi one and all. It's been a while since I posted but here is a link to a package of resources
I produced exploiting the French version of the song to introduce Noddy (Oui Oui in French). As repeating "oui oui" repeatedly and loudly has a predictable giggle factor, you have to be fairly confident with your groups! But it can be a really fun tune to use if your are… Continue

Does anyone out there know of a simple song (In French) suitable for a Y6 leavers assembly? Maybe one of you 'creative types' has written some words to a familiar tune that you would be willing to share?! I thought I'd ask before setting to and trying to write my own!!!

Hi all, I'm looking for advice again. As a student nearing the end of my GTP course, I am going to hold a staff meeting on teaching French. It is this Thursday, and I have loads of notes and a handout of 9 pages long so far, and I am a little concerned about what I really need to say. I am at an Infant school, so obviously that influences our MFL teaching, and the staff don't want me to make them play games! Has anyone run a MFL staff meeting before? Do you have any ideas about what I can tell… Continue
