Our Languages Curriculum is delivered by a specialist teacher from Passport Language Solutions. The overall focus in our Spanish lessons is fun, involvement and enjoyment. The emphasis initially is on listening and speaking, but as the children progress, their reading and writing skills are developed. As well as watching films of Spanish people going about their daily lives, we play games, sing songs, use puppets and other props to demonstrate the language. Children are encouraged to ‘have a go’, often in a role play situation, and they know that their friends are there to support them if they are struggling.
Each session practices and reinforces previously learnt language and introduces a new element. We learn our Spanish skills through different topics (see overview) and in doing so we learn about the Spanish culture and its traditions, as well as those in other Spanish speaking countries like Mexico. We also enjoy comparing the different languages and cultures of the children in our school and we like to tell each other about our holiday experiences in places other than Bromborough, especially when we have tried something new.
