Sparkle time!


November school days can be dark and cold. Add sparkle,action and illumination to the school day and your primary languages teaching and learning with our “Let’s Sparkle” performance poem. Plus there is an activity guide on creative and active ways to exploit the simple spoken and written text from KS1 through to Year 6.Could help you create a performance for a Winter assembly,Diwali and festivals of light weeks or even a Christmas show!

Why not listen to, join in with, practise and perform our “Let’s Sparkle” poem and revisit core language that every foreign language learner will have met in first couple of months of language learning?

The poem has a repetitive verse and practises greetings,simple feelings, numbers 1-10 and some common colours. More details and the downloadable documents are available here in our Active Lingo Shop in French,Spanish ,German and English (with text and native speaker sound files too).
