Survey 2018

In May 2015 I carried out a survey of Key Stage 2 provision of Languages, and I also asked some questions of Key Stage 3 teachers who were involved with Year 7 teaching.

May 2015 was almost the end of the first year of compulsory Languages in KS2.  June 2018 marks the end of the fourth year, so I am embarking on another, virtually identical survey, to see if and how things have changed since 2015.

  • If you are a teacher of KS2 Languages in England, I'd be very grateful if you could complete the 11 questions on this survey 
    If you teach Languages in more than one school, please could you complete the survey once for each school.
  • If you are involved with the teaching of Languages in KS3 in a school in England, I'd be very grateful if you could complete the 9 questions on this survey.

Privacy statement: You will not have to give any personal information and email addresses will not be stored or used.

Very many thanks for contributing!  The surveys will close at 11.45pm on Friday 13th July.

Teach Primary Resource award finalist!

In September 2016 I first published this resource, Box of French: Je suis préhistorique!  It's a series of nine lessons designed for Year 3 children, which teaches greetings, colours, the concept of gender and articles via cave paintings, Stone Age tools and Iron Age jewellery.

I heard today that this resource is a finalist in this year's Teach Primary Resource awards:

Special thanks are due to Nathalie Paris, who suggested I enter some of my resources for the awards.  The winners will be announced in October.  Very exciting!

The Spanish version, Box of Spanish - ¡Soy prehistórico! is also available in my Sellfy shop.
