ISBNPrint: 9781905780792 E-book: 9780857471345
This book was written by Michelle Williams, a primary school teacher, and Nicolette Hannam, a secondary school teacher. While team-teaching French to Year 5 they looked at classroom displays, and began to see how easily French could be accommodated within normal lessons and embedded across the curriculum. This approach to language learning is known as Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).
The authors spent time examining the National Curriculum and identifying places where a link with French was possible. After much planning, teaching and evaluating they have now refi ned their ideas and collected them in this book, aimed at supporting schools that have chosen French as a modern foreign language for pupils throughout Key Stage 2.
How does CLIL work?
CLIL involves teaching a subject, such as history or maths, in the target language, where possible. It encourages a dual-language approach to any chosen topic, embedding the language within other subjects, and so enhancing pupils’ learning across the curriculum. CLIL lessons can be stimulating and challenging. They are most successful when they are supported by visual aids, such as fl ashcards or dual-language interactive whiteboard presentations. Tasks should support pupils by reinforcing prior language knowledge and introducing new vocabulary gradually. These tasks often provide material for excellent creative displays that link work across the curriculum, helping pupils to retain information.
