Thanks Julie. I would fully agree with the proposals above to take this inquiry forward, and think trying to link the beginning to another point they have already reached in their learning would make it so much easier. Geography would seem the sensible place to start and I know that this initial connect stage when introducing new topics or places in Geography lessons has been very successful. We may as well let others do some work for us that we can piggy-back on!
I think what has become very apparent is the need to get a lot more French into the inquiry at every stage, even if that means needing to dedicate more time to it overall. Language understanding and production are paramount, and the inquiry needs to be a vehicle for this rather than something extra we are trying to achieve and I think we have some good ideas of where to go next.
