WoLLoW stands for “World of Languages / Languages of the World” and is an exciting new curriculum aimed at putting joy and fun at the heart of languages teaching for children in KS2 and KS3. The WoLLoW resources and lesson content have been created to encourage children to be curious about languages, to understand the links and see the patterns between languages, and to help them to think about how a language works. We want pupils on the WoLLoW programme to love words and love how their own language works. The goal is for pupils to be filled with the wonder of how languages intermingle, how they have built on each other and how they enhance our lives.
Abigail Dean is a teacher of French and German at Norwich School. As a co-founder of WoLLoW, she is a main contributor to the curriculum design, lesson content, and resources on its website, as well as liaising with schools and other stakeholders across the UK and within Europe.
John Wilson is Head of Languages and Director of International Partnerships at Cheadle Hulme School. He is a Spanish specialist and also Partnerships Lead for The Independent Schools’ Modern Languages Association (ISMLA). He is a WoLLoW Collaborator.

This year’s ALL Yorkshire’s Winter Series will again take a blended approach. Some of the sessions will take place at King Edward VII School, whereas some will be offered on zoom.
The face-to-face sessions will allow us to engage with inspirational speakers and each other, discussing strategies and resources for language teaching, sharing best practice, exploring old and new ideas, as well allowing room for informal chats and exchanges.
Offering sessions on Zoom allows us to invite speakers from further afield for whom it would be impractical to travel to us and at the same time offering part of our programme to teachers from all over the country, not just those who live in and around Sheffield.
All sessions will start at 17:30, and for those which take place at King Edward VII School there is also an opportunity for colleagues to meet up beforehand for an informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
