How well does it match the curriculum?

Brilliantly: There is more content (eg support / extension activities) than we expected

It is a comprehensive programme


How well does it support your school’s inclusion/diversity/equal opportunities policy?

Well: The content is inclusive and sensitively presented

It is representative and fulfils equality expectations


How well does it support differentiation for the full range of the classes you use it with?

Well: A large majority of resources are suitably differentiated for pupils

Because we juggle so many subjects in primary, there is a tendency to not differentiate when teaching French.


How well does it engage and motivate pupils?

Brilliantly: Pupils love using and are excited when they know they are going to do so

The resources are great and the children love them - even our Year 6 join in with the songs!



How well does it support planning?

Brilliantly: It has everything you could need and is straightforward to use with classes

It’s all there for you.


How well does it support home use / independent learning?

Well: Pupils could be expected to use this at home or independently, with a minimum amount of support or additional resources

We haven’t used as remote learning but it could be easily used.


How would you rate it for value for money compared to similar resources?

Brilliantly: It’s possibly the best value for money of any similar resources I’ve seen

It’s worth the cost.
