Since my change of role in September, I have a lot more spare time, and have been filling some of it in the last couple of weeks making up some songs to help my KS2s with their phonics in Spanish. So far I've done one for the "j" sound and one for the "th" sound. You can download them and accompanying resources here (scroll down to the bottom of the page).
Just had a tip-off from Early Start that they are offering some free sample flashcards to support the launch of MLG Publishing 'Ici on parle francais'.
The MLG scheme is aimed at supporting non-specialist primary teachers and is available in French, German and Spanish, as are the free flashcards and sample chapters. Click here http://www.earlystart.co.uk/mlg.htm to read more and download…
It's December, and Jo has decorated the page, so guess we'd better acknowledge that Christmas is coming! So, in case you don't find it all by yourself, I thought I'd point you towards a post on my blog entitled Resources for Christmas. I could just copy it all here but I don't like to do that too often as it seems like cheating to me. So if you're interested, all you have to do is… Continue

Although my boys are getting older, we still love Pocoyo. And so do many of the kids at school. They're really interested when I tell them that Pocoyo is Spanish for little me and worked out for themselves that Pato might mean duck in Spanish.
So when we went to Spain and saw Pocoyo in Spanish on TVE it made perfect sense ( we watched JimJam and Sunny too - that was a bit more odd!)
And when i found videos on Youtube, I was very pleased, and thought I'd share a… Continue
Would you believe that I started uploading this yesterday afternoon- was losing the will! Have split the powerpoint into four parts to make it quicker to upload but.....hope it doesn't take as long to download! Would have given up but it became a matter of principle!!! Have sent my kids to playscheme so I can do some work- much to their disgust. Have done a powerpoint of Juanito to use in September -images scanned from a book and text mainly from qca. Have blogged it… Continue
Yesterday I was lucky enough to catch up with Tracy Adams, a Devon Primary Languages Consultant who is currently working with Chris Wakely on 'Take Ten En Español'. This handy pocket-sized resource with accompanying DVD and Karaoke CD will be out later in the Autumn term - and not a moment too soon for those of us who have already come across… Continue
Thought I would bring this to the attention of folks who do Spanish, especially as you seem to lose out to French in terms of resources and so on. A Cuerpo is a theatre company offering performances, workshops and resources for KS2 Spanish. They are based in the Leicester but could travel further afield.
At this time of year, all is completely haywire at school and it's really hard to get anything completed when you're only in (officially) two days a week! So I am particularly proud of managing to submit the December task for Voices of the World This may have something to do with the fact that the tasks are all intended to be fairly easy and stress free, and also to the enthusiasm of the kids. After having the majority of Key… Continue
What a mixture, eh! But they are related - in my mind anyway!
Just over a week left before we're back to school and my mind is seriously turning to what to do on my alloted display boards. Don't know how I managed it, but I've got three - to everyone else's two per year group - guess it has something to do with my ability to fill them! Anyway, I love displays and in my previous school I even got a point for being 'display… Continue
