Our Spanish Teachers

Spanish Lessons

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.



In Reception children learn greetings, colours, animals through typical Spanish songs and games.


Year 1

In Year 1 children review what they learnt in reception and learn more deeply about family, animals, stories in Spanish, clothes or city places.


Year 2

In Year 2 children start using their vocabulary to make their own learning connections and can remember and learn lots of more words. Children learn vocabulary about  different professions or vehicles. They start learning to describe people such as  different professions (such as a doctor, a teacher...) and some Spanish grammar is started to be introduced. Children create their first sentences. 


Year 3

In Year 3 children have lots of vocabulary that are able to use in context. They keep learning new vocabulary and this vocabulary is used in sentences by learning different facts or describing things. Children will be tested in their ability to speak, listen and understand some Spanish related to the theme that they have been learning about.


Year 4 

In Year 4 children are exposed to geographical and historical Spanish features. They learn new topics such the parts of the house while they practise more complex grammatical structures of the Spanish language. 



To be immersed in a language is to truly learn it.
