Lessons are highly interactive and pupils will practise the skills of listening, reading, speaking and writing throughout Key Stage 3. We will build an awareness of Spanish grammar to enable pupils to manipulate language and express themselves with increasing confidence.
Over the three years we study a range of topics including personal information, free time activities, holidays, education and work, healthy lifestyles and home and local area. As well as studying language related to these topic areas, pupils also learn about life in Spain and other Spanish speaking countries and compare and contrast this with life in the United Kingdom.
Throughout the course, pupils are provided with opportunities to express themselves with increasing confidence, independence and creativity. They explore the similarities and differences between Spanish and English and learn how language can be manipulated and applied in different ways. Pupils have the opportunity to participate in lessons through the use of a variety of fun, group and pair work activities, games and team competitions.
Homework includes a range of tasks such as written work, research tasks and vocabulary learning. Pupils are encouraged to consolidate and enhance their learning at home via the use of language learning websites.
