P1 & P2 French language teachers needed for Creative Puppetry Research Project

Dear teacher,
Thank you for your interest in my MEd Final Year Project!
I am a Teaching Artist specialised in introducing my French language through puppetry and creativity. I am also the author of the bilingual picture book Lapin is Hungry. Throughout my studies and research, I hope to create a play-based, practical and inclusive toolkit for all Early Years MFL teachers. This Creative Puppetry project is an important step towards the creation of the full resource.

My research question:
What differences, if any, a play and creative puppetry based approach to learning can make to Early Years language teaching and learning?

Health & Well-Being potential effects will also be analysed and discussed.

For this:
• I am looking to remotely collaborate with 2 teachers of French language (one P1 and one P2) to deliver 4 lessons each and 2 suitable observers of the sessions. Ideally, the school will be within the Central Belt.
• The project will be based on the bilingual picture book Lapin is Hungry, which contains food vocabulary and greeting words. Pupils and teachers will make simple puppets and playfully re-enact the story, speaking French in the process.
• Lessons will be planned and evaluated through a community of practice method (via online chats) and could be part of the usual time allocated to French learning.
• Teachers’ time could count as CLPL hours.
• Possible timeline: sparingly from November with lessons delivered in Jan / Feb 2021.

This form is designed to give me a better idea of the current context you work in and to effectively register your interest for the project. None of the information you share will be passed on to third parties.
Please feel free to use the form to ask any questions regarding the project.
