The exciting things I will learn in Spanish at St Joseph’s are:


Children enjoy a weekly Spanish lesson where they learn to:

  • listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding.
  • explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words.
  • engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help.

Why do I need to know this? 


Language-learning is integrated with education for global citizenship, and forms an essential part of pupils' developing cultural awareness and concern for others.  We are taught Spanish by our class teachers every week in Purple, Yellow and Green. 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.
