Year 3 and Year 4 German (Rot/Gelb) Autumn term

We plan for a weekly lesson of 30 minutes, with five mini follow ups (4 of 5 minutes, 1 of 10 minutes).
There is a PowerPoint resource for each lesson and a separate PowerPoint for the follow-up lessons.

There are two versions of each resource: with and without audio.

Note: The SOW teaches the same phonics and grammar knowledge in each year, but varies the vocabulary. This model is designed to fit both mixed and single year classes. The actual resources themselves are different, with different tasks to complete.

The full scheme of work is available to download here. The scheme of work will be updated periodically, therefore, please check back regularly to download the most up-to-date version.
