28 new resources for KS3 French

I've just uploaded the first 28 new sentence builders for KS3 French, to accompany Studio 1.  This is in addition to the resources already on the site for Studio 1 - 2 for each double page spread.


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

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!

  • 19 minibooks for primary French - all can be found on this page  The easiest way to find them will be (on a computer) to do CTRL+F and type into the box either "3.7.20" (date of upload) or "minibook".  On a smartphone or tablet tap the 3 dots in the top right corner and say select "Find in page", and type in the same information.
  • 19 minibooks for primary Spanish, at least one for each unit of the scheme of work.  Looked at in a sequence, these show well the progression of the scheme.
  • "I can" cards for the 18 units of the new KS2 Spanish scheme of work, underneath the scheme of work documents
  • Various new sentence builders and odd one out activities for KS2 Spanish, many of them for the new unit 17, and also some for units 8, 9, 10, 13 and 16.

New Knowledge Organisers for KS2 Spanish



People have been asking about the knowledge organisers to accompany my new scheme of work for Key Stage 2 (age 7-11) Spanish, so I have uploaded all 20 of them now that they are finished (20, because 2 units needed 2  - it simply wouldn't fit all on 1 sheet!)  You'll find them here.  Thank you to all the LiPS (Languages in Primary Schools) members for their constructive feedback and suggestions.



All of these resources are available to you absolutely free of charge.  I have not been and will not be paid for making them.  It took 5 days to make these 20 Knowledge Organisers.  Please consider making a donation to the future of the website.

New scheme of work for Key Stage 2 Spanish




If you are a regular visitor to the Primary Spanish pages of the website, you'll notice that there have been some big changes.

I have completed my new scheme of work (read its story here), and have uploaded it to the site - click on Scheme of Work for all the documents.  The previous scheme is still there, in a zipped file called Legacy Scheme.

The new units and changed units have required a big change around of the resources.  The resources are now in the order of the new scheme, but I haven't deleted any, so you'll still find all your favourites, just maybe in a different place.

I have a big long list of new resources to make to accompany the new scheme.  You can subscribe to this blog by filling in the "Follow by email" box on the right hand side under the labels.  That way you won't miss any news about new resources.

I made the images in Canva, by the way.  Did you know that if you can prove to Canva that you're a teacher, you can get a free Pro account?


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.
