A message from Nicole Valencia, our Primary MFL Chair:
I have managed to entice Chris Wakely, a famed MFL practitioner and adviser on the national stage, to return to Southend in July for an EXTRA meeting around Primary languages.
Chris, who has already informed and entertained Southend teachers when he visited Southend Girls to talk about MFL and movement then about the importance of Phonics, will be coming on 7th July at 4.15pm at Southend Girls to talk about what makes an outstanding Primary MFL lesson.
This extra session will be FREE to all teachers and coordinators of MFL who would like to attend. Chris will bring his long expertise as a teacher (both primary and secondary), PGCE trainer and OFSTED inspector to share his experience of what makes an outstanding lesson.
On the day, Chris will also be offering important discounts (an average of 50%!) on the Take 10 series of language teaching resources which he has been involved with for many years in Devon. Many of you will have used Take 10 to teach languages through songs or Take 10 Phonics to support the teaching of Phonics. I will be sending the list of discounts and products to all those who register for this session.
I would ask you to let me know if you would like to attend this extraordinary meeting and to make sure that you put the date in your diaries! A flyer regarding the meeting is below, feel free to print it and display in your schools!
