Modern Foreign Languages Cover

Using Primary PPA Cover’s Specialist MFL Teachers could not be a more suitable and hassle-free way of covering your school’s requirements of MFL


LinguaLearn©: MFL PPA Cover

Complete 300317 051The LinguaLearn concept was created by the directors of Primary PPA Cover Ltd in 2012 as a way of teaching languages interactively in primary schools. All schools that have decided to use LinguaLearn© to cover their language requirement have been overwhelmed by the children’s progress and enthusiasm towards their language lessons. Since September 2014, every school is required to offer an MFL lesson at least once per week for years three to six (Key Stage 2) and LinguaLearn© could not be a more suitable and hassle-free way of covering the requirements of the new curriculum for the following reasons:

  • Our MFL LinguaLearn© teachers use our specifically designed software which imports class lists and tracks pupil progress as well as providing individual or class reports at the click of a button. For more information on our LinguaLearn© software please click here
  • LinguaLearn© involves a wide variety of cross-curricular links enabling children to excel in other areas of the curriculum whilst learning a new language
  • The programme combines competitions, teamwork and fun which put a new outlook on language learning for children
  • LinguaLearn© opens the opportunity to improve confidence, negotiation and physical activity skills
  • After the first four weeks, at least 60% of the programme is taught in the target language which enables children to be constantly listening to the new language and learning without realising
  • LinguaLearn© improves children’s literacy and numeracy skills and opens greater opportunities for children at college and university; having acquire a language skill at such a young age
  • Due to our international schools’ links, we facilitate international learning opportunities for the children such as; Skype interactive sessions with schools in Spain, pen-pal schemes, and even residential trips abroad. For more information on this, please contact us.

LinguaLearn© LANGUAGES

  • Spanish
  • French

Schools are to choose one language from the above options for their LinguaLearn© programme.

Although languages are only a compulsory requirement for Key Stage 2 (since September 2014), many schools are already asking us to provide a teacher to teach shorter language lessons (30 -45 minutes) for Key Stage 1 ready for when they move up to the next Key Stage, which we can facilitate – please contact us for a quote.

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a quick ‘Hello’ to share some of the beautiful Christmas themed work the children in our Primary schools have done during their Art PPA cover lessons and French or Spanish PPA cover lessons with our super Specialists!

I officially finish for the Christmas Holidays today and as much as I am excited about my lie in on Monday I’m sad that I won’t get to see all of the other photos we receive of the beautiful Christmas work happening in our schools next week!

To share with you just why our Specialists really are the best PPA cover Specialists in the world…have a browse through some of the photographs below from a variety of our Primary schools across the country!

 

 

 

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to all schools that entered our Company Christmas Card Competition – the competition was higher than ever and the elves here at Primary PPA Cover HQ really struggle to pick and overall winner! Congratulations to the super talented pupils at Hullavington Primary School and Caroline Hudson; their very lovely art PPA cover Specialist, of whom are the winners! The pupils created very intricate mosaic style depictions of the 12 Days of Christmas using snippets of coloured paper, card and other textured materials…I am sure you’ll agree that they have done a super job and we’re all very proud of them here at Primary PPA Cover HQ!

 

Get a load of Finlay’s winning Christmas card design for our sister Company, ClubsComplete! Finlay is from Griffydam Primary school and is just 5 years old…you would never have guessed with how professional his design is (check out that beard!!). Well done Finlay, you have done an expert job and we can’t wait for our other ClubsComplete schools to receive this in the post next week! www.clubscomplete.co.uk 

Right, I’m off to join my team for a Friday Afternoon Tea at one of our local restaurants…yet another reason why Primary PPA Cover is one of the best places to work…ever!

Merry Christmas everyone, make sure you eat lots of chocolates, give lots of presents but most of all chill out and have fun!

Wow! What a busy start to the term we’ve had!

One of my favourite things about working for Primary PPA Cover has to be the Autumn Term and how many new schools we welcome to the Primary PPA Family! This year has been no exception and we thoroughly look forward to supporting the team and pupils in each and every school we have the pleasure of working in.

This term has whizzed by so quickly that I can hardly believe I’m sitting her during the half term holiday having just sent our menu requests off for the Christmas party!! In all the excitement, I’m yet to share some of the fantastic work and progress our super Specialists and pupils have produced this term, so in celebration of European Languages Day I am pleased to share work from St Andrews South Gate Primary School in Enfield and Hullavington CofE Primary School in Gloucestershire!

Do you know why we learn French? Well done to the children at Hullavington!

Get a load of those eyelashes!! Excellent work from the children at St Andrews Southgate!

Muy bien! Super Spanish writing skills from the children at St Andrews Southgate!

Another success we have celebrated this term is that our Directors; Kerry and Stacey Barsby, have been shortlisted as finalists for the national NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards – how exciting! Both Kerry and Stacey had the pleasure of meeting all of the other entrants on 3rd October at the Awards Celebration Evening in Birmingham and they certainly had a brilliant time! Their hard work and determination is just one of the many reasons we have become England’s Best PPA Recruiter and why I am so proud to work for such a progressive and future forward Company. Muy bien Kerry and Stacey!

So, who loves cake? Thought so. We do too and even better we love teaching children how to bake and create the most delicious cakes and sweet treats through our Bake Off style clubs! If you’re fed up of ‘Soggy Bottoms’ or dream that your pupils will one day produce an ‘even bake’ Paul Hollywood would be proud of then have no fear, our sister Company ClubsComplete are here! This term enquires for our Bake Off Club have been hot out the oven and we are so pleased to inspire children on a National basis to taste, experiment and explore cooking and baking following a Bake Off Style format, whilst at the same time, supporting your current Food Provision to meet Ofsted’s standards as part of the new Common Inspection Framework. Piece of cake! www.clubscomplete.co.uk

The showstopper created by the Star Bakers from Long Whatton Primary School’s Bake Off Club! Yummy!

In celebration this term also were several of our super clever schools and children that made it on to the Championship Leader Board in the Vocab Express International competition! Every year, several of our schools that we support with MFL PPA cover enter the online competition and this year Holy Family Catholic Primary School in Coventry came 2nd in the world with a further two of our schools making it into the top 20! What an incredible achievement!! One of the many reasons we are so proud to be England’s best PPA Cover providers for Nurseries and Primary Schools!
