❝Language is the road map of a culture.
It tells you where people come from and where they are going"

Welcome to the Spanish curriculum page where you can find out about all the wonderful things we've been learning about in school this year!
This Autumn, teachers and pupils, have been getting used to our new language. In order to launch our new language, we have adopted a whole school approach and all children have been learning key vocabulary!
We started by looking at typical classroom commands and have become much more confident using them on a daily basis.
We have also been looking at various topics such as colours, the days of the week, months and most recently we have been using this knowledge to record our birthdays in Spanish.
This Spring, we have recapped on greetings and looked at how to introduce ourselves formally. We have also began to look at introducing members of our family and enjoyed looking at famous families.
This term, children will continue to practice Spanish numbers and months as to prepare them to confidently converse with other pupils about their age and their birthdays.
The children will also be looking at Sports and expressing their opinions about certain sports. We will finish the term by looking at body parts and sing along to "Cabeza, hombro, rodillas y pies".
This term, the children and teachers have been enjoying learning all about healthy foods and lifestyle choices in Spanish. We now know all the nouns for the healthy food and drink we should consume for a healthy life and the nouns for those to avoid. We also looked at verbs for eating, drinking and various activities.
