A primary teacher puts fun and interactive lesson ideas into practice during a Year 5 French modern language class on vocabulary, in this MFL pedagogy resource.
Sarah Hall, a modern languages consultant, shows Year 5 teacher Claire Roberts how to teach vocabulary - in this instance, colours - using a variety of speaking and listening games.
The games played include Chain Gang, where the pupils move around the classroom saying a colour and link arms with other children saying the same colour. A team Fly Swat game helps with recognising written French colours.
The written element comes in when pupils play a game of Chinese whisper writing and a handwriting pair game.
