Once again this year I applied for a £75 grant through Europe Direct Durham and this is what I am planning to do: Activities paid for by Europe Direct Durham grant
There is a very comprehensive document about useful phrases on the phone which I have come across and you may want to choose from: SAVOIR-TELEPHONER. Here are the phrases which I am going to focus on with younger and older primary school children: key phrases on the phone . For ease of use, I have put them in a presentation with translations in English too: click here for the talking on the phone ppt or click here for the talking on the phone pdf. In addition, I will be using this amazing and fun picture book: “Allô! Allô?”. Read a full blog about this story here! Lastly, here is a list of jobs for younger pupils to consider: Jobs for KS1 . Please do get in touch if you have already done similar activities! 
Details of the annual ALLNE competition (a recipe for happiness) are now available here: European Day of Languages 2018 final (002). You can enter from anywhere in the country and WIN PRIZES! I find it is always worth planning time to give my pupils a chance to take part!
You can look at the ALL website for more ideas.
Another amazing and original idea is that of making language stones with your children, as suggested on Twitter and on Facebook by Eleanor Abraham. You make them, hide them and find them!
