On Track - A FREE Fun Filled French Activity Kit

Sport can offer a really motivating focus for language work and this resource is an example of good practice. It combines 30 French language learning contexts at all levels with sports-related activities and won the Primary Languages Award for French 2012. On Track Resource Pack

Although inspired by and written for the 2012 Olympics it has a shelf life beyond and has been used widely, particularly at KS2 & KS3 level.

As well as enhancing language skills, the activities are intended to promote the sporting values of teamwork, perseverance, self-confidence and inter-personal skills, in addition to global citizenship. They can be adapted to focus on different areas of language at varying levels of complexity and could be conducted in languages other than French. Whilst these kinaesthetic cross curricular activities are suitable for all ages and abilities, some of the more challenging differentiated and ‘Going for Gold’ ideas are more suitable for upper Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.
