Covid-19 and verb posters

 If you've seen our Twitter or Facebook feeds this weekend, you'll have seen that I have made some Covid-19 posters for the classroom.

French Covid-19 posters are now available to download from here

Spanish Covid-19 posters are available to download from here

You may also have seen some graphics with different tenses of high-frequency verbs on our social feeds.  These can now be downloaded from here.

When I uploaded the last batch of resources a couple of days ago, I did a quick count, and the site had 6993 resources on it.  These 26 new resources take the total to over 7000, so I have been able to change the description on the homepage!  We are now "a site packed with over 7000 language resources", all of them absolutely free.

All of these resources are available to you absolutely free of charge.  I have not been and will not be paid for making them.  Please consider making a donation to the future of the website

New sentence builders for Studio 3 Rouge and Studio 3 Vert

 I've just uploaded the first lot of sentence builders for Studio 3 Vert and the second module for Studio 3 Rouge.  

Do you like our new look, by the way?  I've tidied up the homepage as well.  If you're looking for things like the Home Spanish videos and the Language Links, click on Archive or Site Map.


All of these resources are available to you absolutely free of charge.  I have not been and will not be paid for making them, and I don't teach KS3 so I won't be using them.  Please consider making a donation to the future of the website

20 sentence builders for Studio 2 Rouge

 I've just uploaded 20 sentence builders for Studio 2 Rouge (KS3 French), which comprise the first two modules.

Would it be more useful to you now if I continued with Studio 2 or would you prefer the first ones for Studio 3 for the beginning of term?

25 new resources today

I've just uploaded 25 new resources, all of them for KS2 French:
  • 20 knowledge organisers  Following much discussion with teachers in the Languages in Primary Schools (LiPS) Facebook group about phonics, I decided to leave the key sounds boxes on the KOs blank. Teachers can fill in their own key sounds prior to copying, and then children can go through underlining or dotting or boxing key graphemes when they come to use the KO.  There were too many key sounds in each KO to fit in to the key sounds space, and I found I was underlining most of the text, which defeats the object!
  • Last sentence builders, for Jobs, Hair and eyes, Weather and En ville.

DON'T FORGET: Display resources for FrenchSpanish and German, just right for your new classroom!
