How to use Ready Made French and Spanish

Ready Made French and Spanish Y3 to Y6 plans are now complete. As network member schools all  your staff can access the half term by half term planning. Log in to the VLE homepage and select Teaching Resources and go to Ready Made French or Spanish and select the year/stage of your learners and the appropriate half term's planning. You can mix and match blocks within half terms and year groups too.

There are six half term planned blocks per year/stage.Teachers have the option to select one or more specific focus within the half term block. For example you can decide with your children in Y3 Autumn term whether your focus will be on greetings, numbers and colours or a combination of two of these.

In each block of planning you can select individual lesson plans with immediate links to the necessary resources, sound files, key words and phrases plus  teacher grammar support documentation too. Each activity has a signposted DfE Attainment Target and an age/stage appropriate activity objective.There are maximum three activities per lesson and the activities have subtitles and are bullet pointed stage by stage activities.  

Ready Made  can act as a training manual for teaching staff either in the target language or approaches to delivery. Some schools and colleagues will want to dip in to themes and focuses rather using the whole package. 

Alongside the core lesson plans there is the option to select from the right hand panel  activities to develop the phonics, reading and grammar skills of the target language.These are all age and stage appropriate and progression as a language learner has been built in across the age/stages. The direct links via Ready Made  enable the teacher to record and celebrate learning through the use of APPs and to access direct links to authentic stories and songs. 

Click on the Puzzle It Out link to access the appropriate language learning skill level core assessment activities .This year you can also access the accompanying  native speaker sound files for the listening element of Puzzle It Out.

As schools grow in confidence then there is the opportunity to step away from Ready Made and  explore the SoW Plus,Seasonal Specials ,Cross Curricular and Treasure Chest packages hosted on the main  Primary Languages Network VLE too.
