Spanish lessons are held for half an hour once a week in class. They are aligned with the planning to ensure cross curricular learning occurs. There is a progressive development in content where children actively build on their Spanish language knowledge from the previous lesson. Children learn through games, songs and cultural activities.
Children at Lanchester learn through typical Spanish songs and games at early years and acquire a wide range of vocabulary as they grow. They make connections between different disciplines and expand their knowledge of the Spanish language using simple grammatical structures. We aim for the children in Lanchester to be exposed to geographical and historical facts alongside the traditions and culture of Spanish speaking countries.
To be immersed in a language is to truly learn it.
