We were delighted to receive the following comments from a Key Stage 2 teacher about Fun French Fairy Tale Plays:
Fun French Fairy Tale Plays
“Some of my Year 5 children performed Cendrillon and it went down a treat with the children and staff alike. The children found it fun to learn and all the information about staging made everything so much easier and manageable for me. The CD and translation were so useful too.”
Cendrillon is one of the 10 plays in Fun French Fairy Tale Plays, which contains specially written adaptations of well-known stories. Each story is given a special twist, adding extra humour. For example, Rapunzel lives at the top of the Eiffel Tower and Snow White loves to play sports, especially golf!
The plays provide an ideal way of motivating children in Key Stage 2 and 3 to learn French. Pupils will enjoy the challenge of learning a French script and subsequently gain confidence through performing it to an audience of adults and/or fellow pupils.
The plays use simple repetitive language and are easily adaptable. Each play has a specific language focus, making it easy to link the plays to topics the pupils are studying.
The book contains reproducible scripts, English translations and suggestions for performing the plays. The CD-Rom included with the book contains audio files of native French speakers performing the plays as well as a pdf version of the book.
Do you teach French, Spanish or German at Key Stage 3? If so, you should have a look at our new secondary foreign languages catalogue. We’ve got lots of practical resources to make your life easier.

The Key Stage 2 Programme of Study for Languages states that primary school pupils should be taught to ‘understand basic grammar appropriate to the language being studied.’
Getting to Grips with French Grammar at Key Stage 2
But it doesn’t give much specifics in terms of what grammar should be taught, to what level, and, crucially, how to ensure progression across all four years of Key Stage 2.
This is why Lara Townsend and Tracy Davies have written Getting to Grips with French Grammar at Key Stage 2.
Getting to Grips with French Grammar at Key Stage 2 breaks the French language into the key elements of gender, verbs and sentence buiding and forming questions, and provides a model of progression for each one.
Detailed assessment activities demonstrate how grammar can be assessed within a variety of contexts, alongside other aspects for the Language Programme of Study.
