On Tuesday 26th November, Catherine Cheater (trainer and author), on behalf of the Primary French Project Partnership, comprising the French Embassy, the Association for Language Learning and Network for Languages, delivered a one-day course which provided classroom teaching resources and support for Primary practitioners who wish to start teaching French in Key Stage 2.
The course is based on teaching materials, which are fully aligned with the new Programme of Study for Languages in Key Stage 2. Participants were encouraged to use the materials to teach French in school, thereby extending their training and enhancing their subject knowledge.
This first training event focussed on Niveau bleu, which is aimed at children in Year 3, or children in their first year of learning French in Key Stage 2. There are further courses to cover materials for teaching other school years. Further training events will take place at Aston University, a regional centre for Network for Languages, in the near future.
The training course was attended by Class Teachers, MFL Co-ordinators and Trainers from across the West Midlands.

Many thanks go to Catherine Cheater and to the participants for making this event such a great success.
