French Picturebook and Resource Pack

Is it possible to read for pleasure in a language you don’t speak?
Books are one of the quickest and most effective tools we have to gain an insight into how other people think and feel. Sharing a picturebook in a foreign language offers a real-life learning experience that enhances and enriches more formal language lessons.

Bookpack - £200

An inspiring and stimulating selection of picture books perfect for use in the classroom. The books are supplied with a complete resource pack including a range of suggested activities and frameworks for introducing the books to your children.

‘Fabulous stories –shows how much you can understand even when language is limited, genuinely new material’

Staff CPD and workshop for pupils are also available to help launch the use of these books in school:

Seven Stories has developed a programme of CPD, workshops and resources to help you to motivate your students and encourage language learning. Being exposed to the rhythms and cadences of another language as part of an enjoyable reading experience has been a really sucessful route into independent learning.
