The Primary French Project provides free teaching materials that aim to train all who teach French in Key Stage 2. 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 Key Stage 2, 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 Key Stage 2, as well as age-appropriate language-teaching methodology. This session will focus on materials dedicated to teaching French at primary level, including lesson plans and interactive PowerPoint Presentations for the smart-board, as well as images and voice recordings necessary to model language and grammatical concepts to children. The Primary French Project materials can be freely downloaded from www.institut-francais.org.uk/primaryfrench
