We are taught Spanish by our class teachers every week from Years 3 up to Year 6. We follow the a progressive scheme of work supported by Lightbulb Primary School. We aim to develop children’s love for learning other languages. We teach Spanish, as opposed to other languages, as it compliments some of our children's native tongue and helps our older children transition to high school, some of which have elected to teach Spanish.
Children take a weekly Spanish lesson where they learn to:
Regular practice at home is essential and can also be fun! Try to encourage them to use everyday phrases such as 'hola' or 'adios' as 'hello' and 'goodbye'. 'Gracias' as 'thank you' and 'de nada' as 'you're welcome'.
You may also get them to use Spanish numbers for example to count objects or when playing a game.
If you require further information, please arrange an appointment with Ms Walsh through the school.
