KS1/2 MFL: Sharing Skills is the latest set of programmes on Primary MFL from Teachers TV. They portray different and successful ways of integrating a modern language into the primary curriculum. In the first programme Sharing Skills - Secondary with Primary we see AST MFL teacher Dave Gilwhite from Manor Secondary School in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire sharing ideas with Nicola Blount, a teacher at feeder school Peafield Lane Primary on how to introduce French to her Yr 3 pupils.
Sharing Skills- Primary with Primary looks at the benefits of 'team teaching' and in particular how Nicola Guy, a primary trained teacher with a B.Ed in modern languages supports and encourages colleagues in Forest Town Primary School and Samuel Barlow Primary School also in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire to deliver their own MFL lessons.
Primary MFL 1 showcases the following PMFL resources:
- Investigating Languages: Level 1-2 - A workbook and CD for the teaching of many different languages
- Le Rythme, la Musique et les Raps de Monsieur X - A CD of French songs and music for young learners
- La chenille qui fait des trous - The classic children's book, The Hungry Caterpillar, in French
