A la ferme – learning French around a farm visit

A La FermeFollowing a successful maths project with local schools, Sarah Stewart of West Sussex Countryside Studies Trust was keen to build further curriculum resources to support farm visits.

She approached Elaine Minett, an Advisory Teacher for Primary Languages, West Sussex, to see if it was possible to produce resources in French. After an initial visit, Sarah supplied facts, some ideas and photos and Elaine worked on the translation, teaching ideas and resources.

The result of her project is a wonderful resource that provides for a range of abilities and covers farm animals, a farmer’s day, the shepherd’s year, food from the farm shop, and much more, with ppt presentations, games, activities, flashcards etc.

This is available free through the WSGfL website and offers a tremendously exciting new dimension to primary curriculum resources.

Merci Elaine!
