I have just finished uploading 75 new resources to the website:
- Some resources for the 2023 Rugby World Cup (English, French, Spanish, German, Italian)
- A number of primary French resources, including some, for opinions of fruits and weather, which are the first for which I have used ChatGPT to try to speed up the process. Read more about my experiments with ChatGPT here.
- Some more primary Spanish resources, including the first for my forthcoming 2-year rolling scheme for Key Stage 1. I am going to be starting with Pirates to teach greetings, numbers and colours. These resources are also available in French.
- Some KS4 Spanish high-frequency verb revision resources

Issue 15 of Write Away! magazine is now available to read on Light Bulb Languages.
I hope that reading this issue or previous issues has inspired you to submit your own students' writing. As the editor, I aim to include as many pieces of work as possible. Here are some tips to help ensure that your students' work is among those selected for inclusion:
1. Please send the work as scanned .jpg or .png files. This is by far the easiest format to edit if necessary and to drop onto the page. Photographed work is not ideal. The resolution is often too low for effective enlargement, and it is very difficult to edit it to get a pure white background.
2. Make sure once the work is scanned that it's legible. Work written in faint pencil or light coloured pen like yellow can't be used. Sometimes colouring-in makes the writing hard to read. Work that has pencil obviously overwritten with pen will not be used. The background of the piece of work should be pure white all over (unless there are illustrations or colouring!)
5. The work needs to be as correct and as neat as possible. Write Away! is aspirational, a showcase and a celebration.
