I teach after school German. There are tons of good websites if you just Google 'primary French'. Also, have a word with your feeder secondary's language dept as they may have dvds etc you could borrow. Bonne chance!

Keep it interactive - lots of songs, games, colouring in...the more they can move round the better as they will tired os sitting still all day.

Subscribe to if you can afford it or if school will pay!! Have a look at the preview - it has loads of fab interactive games and a really good primary age section. Mind you, will you have access to a computer/whiteboard?

Games of course will be a good idea - I still love my flashcard stuff although nowadays that's not thought of as being of high enough thinking skills hmm

Am off to bed now but please e mail me if you want any ideas sarah hallas at googlemail dot com

Good luck!

some bits for you here sorry if links dint work yo might need to cut and paste very basic alphabet
some fun bits here

go to additional french resources
good ideas but accents are anglicised as it is the kids taking part rather than native speaker

I'm HoD (languages) at a comprehensive school, and we send our foreign language assistants out into our local primaries to teach French to years 5 & 6.

We have bought the Jolie Ronde resources for our assistant to use - particularly "Entrez dans la classe" (it's about 2/3 of the way down the page). It's copiable, and our assistants (who haven't had teacher training) find it a really good easy resource.

We also use the zut website quite a lot - I've linked to the junior one, but the senior one is also useful for year 6 particularly.

Have fun!
