Delta Maria’s goal is to support teachers in their effort to deliver curriculum objectives in KS2 teaching of French and Spanish. Storytelling Workshops created by Delta Maria Books encourage pupils to appreciate and listen attentively to stories delivered to them in foreign languages.
The aim is to develop accurate pronunciation and intonation of French and Spanish. The story books used for the workshops give pupils opportunity for follow-on-work, in the form of comprehension questions, which help pupils to increase their vocabulary. Pupils ability to describe places, people, things and actions, is enhanced both orally and in writing. The workshops and accompanying resources create a foundation on which further studies of Spanish and French can be based.
Delta Maria now supports teachers nationwide through the use of videoed storytelling workshops.
