Some years ago, Sue Cave and her former colleague Jean Haig created a ‘Language Detectives Day’ for able primary linguists. It was a day of activities which were tried and tested on an annual basis. In the morning the trainees received training in learning language strategies and knowledge about language in Spanish, Italian, German and Welsh. In the afternoon they used their training from the morning to solve a crime mystery being planned by a multilingual gang. The resources and planning for the day can be downloaded here. The templates for the morning resources can be found in the attachment section of the Smart notebook file - Language Detectives Day and the afternoon resources in the attachment section of the Smart Notebook file - Clues for Mystery.
