All schools teach a Modern Foreign Language. We currently employ a specialist Spanish teacher, who is a native speaker, to teach Spanish one day per week.
Our specialist Spanish language provision ensures that pupils, from Year 3 to 6, develop an interest in Hispanic culture and the vocabulary and language skills to:
- Articulately read, write and speak in Spanish.
- Confidently take part in a variety of fun and purposeful activities such as storytelling, singing, dancing, debating, playing games, food tasting and role-play.
In addition to this, class teachers also support learning by using simple Spanish words and phrases.
We take all opportunities to invite parents in to school, to enhance our learning across the curriculum. Below is an image of Eli, a Spanish-speaking parent, as she leads a story-telling session in our library, during our annual Spanish Day.
