Everyone loves a story.

In this podcast, Janet shares books that complement themes and certain units of work in primary French, especially if you are a Primary Languages Network member*.

Have a listen and see how and why you should consider adding a book to your teaching and learning of languages.

Take a listen and explore ways that you can develop display and creative learning with a story time in French.

From our Ready Made SOW Year 3 Autumn 1 and 2 work on colours and reading as a class the very simple story book “Toutes les Couleurs” , (whether you use Click 2 Teach, Be Creative or our Teach by Story) ,to very familiar story books such as “Going on a Bear Hunt” in the target language that dovetail beautifully as class stories at the end of one of our units of work. Looking for simple books, written for young learners of French, for your reading corner?Janet has some suggestions for these too.
