Education Scotland has just published a new principles and practice document for modern languages including new learning statements for P7.
The European Day of Languages is celebrated across Europe on the 26th September. One of its aims is to raise awareness of the importance of lifelong language learning. As we prepare to introduce French to all our P1 pupils in October you may wish to use this opportunity to raise the profile of languages in your schools. SCILT has put together some ideas to support you with your celebrations.
Primary 1 classes will be commencing their French lessons after the October break. In the meantime the “Le Français en Ecosse” Cluster Training resources are now in our Google Drive folder which you can access by clicking “Visit East Lothian 1+2 Resources” on the right of this screen. You will need your edubuzz e-mail address to log in. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance if required. You will also find the Pilot Cluster’s weekly planning sheets and resources and the ELC P1 Planner which was produced last session. For more information visit Education Scotland, Guidance for P1.
Four CLPL courses for Beginners French are being offered week beginning 1/9/15. They will be held in Preston Lodge High School, Musselburgh High School , Ross High School and Knox High School. Courses run for 6 weeks until the October break. A French Immersion Day is also being run for East Lothian staff at the French Institute in Edinburgh on 3/10/15. More details available on CPDShare.
Remember to check our Useful Websites page for resources. It will be updated regularly.
Law Primary and Dunbar Primary have both been successful in their applications for Erasmus+ funding which will be used to send members of staff on immersion courses over the next two years. We will be supporting other schools in the autumn term with bids for funding for future years.
