Spanish

At St Stephen’s Spanish is taught to all children as part of the normal school curriculum. The learning of a modern foreign language is a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for the pupils. Pupils develop communication and literacy skills that lay the foundations for future language learning. They develop linguistic competence, extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences and similarities between Spanish and English. Learning another language raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world in which we live therefore allowing a liberation from insularity. It also serves to introduce an international dimension to pupils’ learning, giving them an insight into their own culture and those of others.

Y1, Y2, Y3: Lessons consist of 45 minute Spanish lessons once a week.  Lessons are practical and include songs, games, stories and the use of puppets. The scheme of work has been created by the Modern Foreign Language (MFL) teacher.

Y4, Y5, Y6: Hourly lessons once a week. A mixture of oral, written, listening and reading skills are used.  Lessons are a combination of practical and written activities. They consist of the MFL teacher’s planning, supported by authentic resources. The children have a Spanish exercise book which they will carry with them up through the Key Stage.

 

Enrichment opportunities

As well as weekly Spanish lessons, children in KS1 can also participate in a Spanish after school club. We also hold an annual Hispanic Day, which gives children, parents, and staff the opportunity to experience the culture and customs of Spanish-speaking countries. Children regularly learn and perform Spanish songs in assembly and in church. The modern foreign languages curriculum is also complemented by school trips both in London and further afield. These include trips to current art exhibitions by Hispanic artists and a one week school residential trip to Puerto Santa Maria, Andalucía in Year 5.
