¡Buenos días!:-)

Since the start of last school year Spanish language – the 3rd most spoken language in the world - has become a compulsory element of the primary curriculum at St Francis school. Currently Ks2 children learn Spanish for 30 minutes a week. We wish to teach our children a language which will positively influence their future professional careers and allow them to explore the world with greater freedom. At the same time we would like to celebrate the growing number of heritage languages we have in school.

On the European day of languages, as part of the launch party for Spanish language,  we organised an incredibly successful workshop where children had the opportunity to learn various Spanish regional dances and familiarize themselves with the basics of Spanish culture. It was a spectacular success and a great start of our adventure with this language.

Children listen to traditional songs and stories and develop their inter cultural understanding of life in different Spanish speaking countries. Activities expand their basic knowledge of Spanish phrases and vocabulary. We aim to progress with the language level and incorporate a wider range of language learning strategies and focus on the 4 skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.

¡Que tengáis un buen dia!
