In EYFS and Key Stage 1 the children have enjoyed playing lots of games to practise saying ‘¡Hola!’ (hello) and ‘¡Adios!’ (goodbye).
In Key Stage 2 the children have really enjoyed learning Spanish through games and songs.
The children looked at hobbies in Spanish. They picked their favourite hobby and surveyed the class to see which hobby was the most popular. The children have started to look at months of the year and using these to talk about celebrations in Spanish. In year 4 the children created invitations to birthday parties. The children are becoming much more confident in the pronunciation of words.
In EYFS and Key Stage 1 the children have enjoyed playing lots of games to practise saying ‘¡Hola!’ (hello) and ‘¡Adios!’ (goodbye). In year 1 the children read the story of ‘Los tres cerditos’ (the three little pigs) http://www.nicurriculum.org.uk/microsite/pl/spanish/houses_and_homes/stories/ and looked at how we can ‘work out’ key phrases and words based on what we already know about the story.
In Key Stage 2 the children have really enjoyed beginning to learn Spanish. They have played lots of games to encourage them to learn to count to 10 including hop scotch, eleven down and bingo.
Some children have started to count to 20, but this still needs practise. Below are some great websites with different games to practise Spanish.
In September all of the children started learning Spanish. Children in Reception have been learning to say hola (hello) and adios (goodbye) whilst in year 2 the children have progressed onto gracias (thank you) buenas dias (good day) and ¿Como ca va? (how are you?). In year 3, the children have really enjoyed beginning to learn Spanish. They can now greet each other, ask how are you? and count to 10 and year 4 can also explain how they are feeling. The children have been using lots of speaking and listening skills, to start the process of learning Spanish. They have learned how to greet each other and respond to questions such as ¿Qué tal? (how are you?) and ¿Cómo te llamas? (what is your name?). In Year 6 the children have learned simple greetings in Spanish and are beginning to ask simple questions.
