  • Curriculum Now! by Rachel Hawkes has lots of ideas for linking with other subjects and developing skills, and comes with online resources. It can be ordered via the website or by phoning ALL on 0116 229 7453.
  • Maps of Peru and Spain. Pupils guess where the various animals live. The pictures of the animals appear on the correct country by clicking.
  • A thinking activity where colleagues identify two links already made with another subject – could be a project, could be a skill overlap (even if not explicit at the moment), could be ways of working

    28. 33. Two stars and a wish! Think about two things that raise the profile of languages already in your school – can you publicise these even more widely?

Make a list of next steps to achieve this one new thing!
