French resources from the Institut Français
The Primary French Project provides free teaching materials that aim to train all who teach French at KS2. Suitable for all practitioners, including those who have no prior knowledge of the language, and also specialist linguists who are new to teaching children in KS2, the materials aim to train the teacher by providing the subject knowledge that is needed in order to meet the requirements of the Programme of Study for Languages in KS2, as well as age-appropriate language-teaching methodology. Benoît Le Dévédec, the Institut’s French Language Attaché, presents the project as well as other primary French teaching resources, school activities, and CDP opportunities in this PDF download.
