Why teach Spanish?
The teaching of Spanish is not all about a sound knowledge of basic grammar and vocabulary; we want our children to develop a love of language and use their enthusiasm that will help them to progress beyond our school.
There are so many important reasons to study a modern foreign language like Spanish. By exposing the children to a language and culture different to their own they will develop an openness to learning about other languages and cultures around the world.
The choice of Spanish was informed from a combination of the findings of a parental holiday survey of the preferred holiday destination and that the feeder high school supported the teaching of this language.
How we teach Spanish
To provide our children with the best possible curriculum and teaching we work in partnership with the Janet Lloyd Language Network and our curriculum is enriched through the support of a language specialist. We teach Spanish across the whole school, from Nursery to Year 6.
