We have chosen to teach Spanish as part of our exciting Masterclass sessions. Our key intent for this subject is for all children to develop an appreciation and interest in learning other languages in a stimulating and enjoyable way.
Beginning in Year 3, children are able to develop a love of languages through a multi-sensory approach to learning as they explore all four of the curriculum strands; reading, writing, speaking and listening. Spanish is implemented in a fun and active way as children learn through mimes, fun games, songs and role play activities to support pupil engagement and memory retention.
Children build on their Spanish learning by following a sequential curriculum which covers units ‘Meet and Greet’ and ‘My Body’ in Years 3 and 4 and units ‘All About School’, ‘My Town’ and ‘Let’s Go’ in Years 5 and 6. Through this approach to learning, we strive to provide a consistent means of helping children remember the content they have been taught and to integrate new ideas and knowledge into a real-life context. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around these chosen topics.
