Language Lecturer Dr Catherine Watts has co-written three books due for publication during November and December 2014.
Published by Routledge the books provide cross-curricular approach to teaching languages in primary schools, combining art, design and foreign languages with various aspects of the National Primary Curriculum such as Literacy, Numeracy and PE.
They are aimed at teachers in UK primary schools where the teaching of foreign languages is now part of the required curriculum. The books are entitled:
Bringing French to Life: creative activities for 5-11
Bringing German to Life: creative activities for 5-11
Bringing Spanish to Life: creative activities for 5-11
The books comprise an engaging storyline about a day in the life of two children and give opportunities for learners to re-enact their day, using finger puppets, handmade crafts and exciting games to practise new language. Each of the fourteen sections begins with a short accessible dialogue in the subject language and is followed by suggestions for using the new vocabulary in pairs, small groups or as a whole class.
Further details of these books can be found on the Routledge website.
