Find out how one teacher incorporates storytelling and writing into her KS2 MFL lesson, using the story to reinforce the teaching and learning of French vocabulary, in this modern languages pedagogy resource.
Janice Dykes bases her lesson on the story of a Madagascan lemur, in French. The piece contains repetitive sequences of narrative, enabling pupils to pick up on what's happening.
Janice encourages the primary pupils to join in with the narrative and add actions as she reads the story out loud. They gradually become more familiar with the content and vocabulary.
Finally, the pupils gain the confidence to write their own short story, based on the same format, and add their own actions.
