Bringing French to Life is a photocopiable resource that provides a cross-curricular approach to teaching French in primary schools, combining art, design and foreign languages with various aspects of the National Curriculum such as Literacy, Numeracy and PE.
This unique practical resource comprises an engaging storyline about a day in the life of two French children and gives an opportunity for learners to re-enact their day, using finger puppets, crafts and exciting games to practise new language. Each of the 14 sections begins with a short accessible dialogue in French and is followed by suggestions for using the new vocabulary in pairs, small groups or as a whole class.
