    I too like the poems, and will definitely use them for my year 6 once I make the French more "user friendly" (I mean simpler ! Thanks for sharing.

    A really interesting series of lessons - my favourite is the poem lesson as it's demanding and engaging! I shall be using this with some of my Year 7s.
