We believe that Modern Foreign Languages prepares students for the rapidly changing world we live in. With Spanish being the second most spoken language in the world, we feel that providing a strong foundation for pupils' understanding of this language will provide them with excellent opportunities to develop this further in the future. Pupils learn to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people, not only learning language skills, but also developing knowledge about Spanish speaking countries.
We are using Language Angels to support our teaching of Spanish, with pupils having access to additional learning games/songs at home which correspond to the units they are covering in class.
A link to the website is found below, and pupils will need to use their login to access.
How children learn in Spanish
Our linguists will:
- Explore Spanish through a range of text types, songs and rhymes.
- Experience conversation with other learners and practise through role play scenarios to prepare them for future application.
- Explore the importance of the Spanish language around the world today.
- Celebrate their learning through displays, presentations and finished pieces of work.
