The Primary French Project
This is a partnership project between the Institut Français du Royaume Uni (IFRU), the Association for Language Learning (ALL) and Network for Languages which could help you to get started on teaching a language throughout Key Stage 2. Free teaching materials, designed for non-specialists, have been developed as part of the project and are available on the Culturetheque website.
Support for Latin
Network for Languages EM and Nottingham City Council have received funding from Classics for All to support Latin in primary schools. This will include a Latin Network which will support Primary teachers in introducing Latin across the curriculum in subjects such as languages, history, and English and literacy. The funding will also contribute to a CPD event, focusing on stimulating interest, generating excitement and offering practical steps to primary schools wishing to deliver Latin.
