Languages to be compulsory?

Have just been pointed in the direction of this. Looks like the Government's new proposed curriculum is to include compulsory languages from the age of 7. I do hope so. Here's an article.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/primaryeducation/9321651/Foreign-languages-to-be-compulsory-from-age-seven.html</p>See More

Was told about this place today- looks good.http://www.hillcrest.bham.sch.uk/lingua/ which offers ‘ a fun packed educational visit of all ages from KS2 to KS5 which will leave your pupils enthused and confident about their linguistic skills.’ They pass through ‘Passport control’ and take part’ in a whirlwind carousel of intensive, fun and interactive activities led by trained teachers and native speakers’. …See More

Hi Helen
Thanks for the invite! If you are interested, I can invite you to our local Oldham SLN Ning. It is mostly for secondaries but lots of them go into primaries as well and I have a couple of things on it you might find useful including letters to liaise with primaries and a widget with links to video resources. Just let me know!

The RSS thing is useful for adding autoupdates - both Isabelle and I have used our RSS boxes to link to our latest blogposts automatically. So to get yours listed automatically you go to blogs on talkabout and click on my block. Scroll down and you should find a small box logo that looks like an amp - a dot in the bottom left and two concentric part circles emitting from it - (usually orange but in this ning it is blue - there is one underneath your latest activity box at the top of this page).

Anyway once you find it, click on it and you usually get asked if you want to 'subscribe' to the feed, which you can but that would be using something like google reader and is a whole other thing..., anyway ignore it and instead right click and copy the url instead at the top of the page.

Now come back to this page and in your RSS text box on the right click edit. Then paste the url in the url space and select wether you want to see your blogposts in detail or just the headlines and how many blogposts you want to display (you can change these details later without having to re-enter the url) then click save and you should see them displayed as Isabelle and I have in our pages.

If you wanted you could put an RSS box in the centre of your main page and have your blog posts auto update on the main page.

Once you get the hang of it you'll start spotting RSS feeds all over the place - like in delicious!
Does that make sense?

Already mooched - it looks great! Still awaiting decision, but looks like we're erring on the side of French.
