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.

“My pupils are now efficient and successful language learners!”

We always love to hear what customers think of our books, which is one of the reasons we like going to exhibitions. We come away with lots of feedback about what people like about our books and also great suggestions for new titles. At the Language Show last year we were delighted to meet Rosaline Guy, who teaches French at three primary schools in Harrow – Middlesex. She was so complimentary about Maria Rice-Jones’ books – Hexagonie and Unforgettable French – that we asked if she could put pen to paper.

Here’s what she sent us. Milles mercis Roseline!

Moving beyond bonjour and counting to 10

A study by Katherine Granger from the University of Nottingham found that, while primary school children enjoy learning a foreign language, most of them feel that they don’t progress beyond learning to say hello and counting to 10.
