Our aim is to embed Spanish in our school community so the pupils understand the purpose of learning a Modern Foreign Language. Learning a new language is key to becoming part of the global community we live in nowadays and by setting a starting point in Primary Education, we can be on the right track to achieving this objective. The learning of an additional language will help the children to be successful in their professional future and feel part of wider society. At this stage, our objective is to build children’s curiosity and to develop their passion for Spanish. We provide the children with engaging and fun activities to develop their linguistics skills and build on their enthusiasm and engagement. This begins in EYFS with informal lessons and educational games all the way to KS2, where the pupils will start to demonstrate an understanding of basic grammar and listening skills.
NUESTRA PÁGINA DE ESPAÑOL (OUR SPANISH PAGE)
Pupils in KS2 are provided with weekly lessons of 30 minutes. The children develop their knowledge through the 4 basic areas: Speaking, Writing, Listening and Understanding, giving children ample opportunities to practise their skills.
We celebrate Hispanic culture at several points through the Year including our Christmas Around the World celebrations, our Globovision song contest and Hispanic Week.
