Northern Primary Languages Show

Yesterday, 5th November, was the inaugural Northern Primary Languages Show at York St John University.  I was invited to speak, and gave a presentation about games that you can play in your languages classroom.  I only had 45 minutes, so I presented 33 games that children can play sitting down at their tables.  I had to draw the line somewhere!  Here is a copy of my slides.  You can find all the resources (and more) on Light Bulb Languages and some of the games are described in more detail in this blog post.  Please get in touch via the comments if you have any questions about any of the games.

Ready to play? from Clare Seccombe

In addition to presenting, I was lucky to be able to attend some of the other sessions.  Here are my sketchnotes:

I also saw some French books that look interesting:

Cache-cache cochons

C'est à moi, ça

Tout en haut (does anyone know it this is available in Spanish?)

Finally, last month I got to visit Nathalie Paris's Bibliobook (mobile library full of books in foreign!) and heard her talking about some stories that she likes to use.  Here is the sketchnote from that day, which I've finally finished!
