Interactive project wikis

ALL Connect Logo

Connecting up language learning around the country:

The ALL Connect team has also created four interactive project wikis, to accompany our existing wiki on Literature.

These allow teachers to upload examples of their own resources for each module, as well as providing further support materials for colleagues in KS2 and KS3:

ALL Literature Wiki

ALL Grammar Wiki

ALL Speaking Wiki

ALL Writing & Translation Wiki

ALL Progression & Transition Wiki

The ALL Connect wikis are also intended as standalone resources for any teacher to use, so have a look and please contribute!

ALL Connect: KS2-3 Transition Toolkit

Welcome to the ALL Connect KS2-3 Transition Toolkit

Toolkit

This handbook is a resource designed specifically for KS2 & KS3 teachers of languages.

A training module written to accompany this resource can be found below.

The ALL Connect Transition Toolkit is a practical, useful guide containing a set of ‘tools’ (ideas, strategies and resources), designed to inform the process of transition in languages teaching and learning between KS2 and KS3. It has been developed and published as part of the Association for Language Learning ALL Connect programme, funded by the Department for Education.

These materials are aimed at an audience of teachers who will be teaching pupils at KS2. Languages of exemplification in the materials and follow-up modules are French, German and Spanish. These materials are freely available for any teacher to use. They must not be used for commercial reasons such as training sessions where attendees are charged a delegate fee by a trainer / training organisation. They may not be used without acknowledgement of the original source. If you are using them, ALL would be very pleased to hear from you, as it is of particular interest to us to know about coverage. Please email info@all-languages.org.uk to let us know.

Welcome to the ALL Connect KS2-3 Transition Toolkit module

This is the training module designed to accompany the ALL Connect Transition Toolkit, and is specifically for KS2 & KS3 teachers of languages.

There are five themed modules for KS2 teachers of languages and two KS2-KS3 modules. The modules are not sequential, and are presented here in four formats:

  • A Powerpoint presentation for use in a training session
  • A pdf for Trainers to use in preparing for a training session; this includes the notes pages that accompany the Powerpoint screens
  • A Powerpoint presentation for selfaccess by a practising teacher or trainee (this version does not include discussion and has reduced notes) in case you wish to view the Powerpoint separately from the Notes
  • A pdf of the Self Access notes page – you might like to access this version in order to have the Notes visible at the same time as the screens.

The materials of this module are aimed at an audience of teachers who will be teaching pupils at KS2. Languages of exemplification in the materials and follow-up modules are French, German and Spanish. These materials are freely available for any teacher to use. They must not be used for commercial reasons such as training sessions where attendees are charged a delegate fee by a trainer / training organisation. They may not be used without acknowledgement of the original source. If you are using them, ALL would be very pleased to hear from you, as it is of particular interest to us to know about coverage. Please email info@all-languages.org.uk to let us know.

 

The format of the module is as follows:

A  presentation  for delivery by a Lead Teacher to a workshop of teacher participants.  The  workshop duration should be two hours, in which the presentations below and accompanying materials / resources and activities should be delivered.

Teachers using the self-access version should also expect to take around the same length of time.

Following delivery of a workshop, teacher participants will undertake independent study of the Transition Toolkit itself.

 

Materials in sequential order:

You will need to download these materials when you click through to them. If you are a Lead Teacher we suggest you do so before you deliver a workshop session.

For Lead Teachers to deliver to teacher participants: For teachers to access as self study:
  • KS2-3 Transition Toolkit Module notes pages We suggest you access this presentation as it gives instructions about how to deliver the session and also suggests where you might introduce activities to the teacher participants.

 

  • KS2-3 Transition Toolkit Module self access – Powerpoint version: This is in case you wish to view the ppt separately from the notes. The notes below each screen suggest questions for professional reflection and exploration.

Please note that you can also access the video files here if you are having trouble playing them: KS2-3 Transition Toolkit Video.wmv and KS2-3 Transition Toolkit Audio.wav.

Teachers using the self-access version should also expect to take around the same length of time.

Following delivery of a workshop, teacher participants will undertake independent study by accessing 4 follow up modules, to be pursued over 4 consecutive weeks following the taught workshop. These are housed on this site and  can be found by scrolling right down this page.
