The language offered at Smithdown Primary School is Spanish and we provide age-appropriate learning opportunities for all children in KS2.

We are very lucky to have Senorita Marina deliver our Spanish lessons to our Key Stage 2 classes.

Aims and objectives:

The aims of Primary Languages teaching at Smithdown are to:

  • Foster an interest in language learning by introducing children to other languages in a way that is enjoyable and accessible to all pupils.
  • Stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language and creativity in experimenting with it.
  • Support oracy and literacy, and in particular develop speaking and listening skills.
  • Help children develop their awareness of cultural similarities and differences.
  • Lay the foundations for future language study by pupils.
  • Provide an added perspective on first language teaching and learning.
  • Give an extra dimension to teaching and learning across the curriculum.

After learning about Spanish food & drink, we spent some time designing our own menus, including the prices in Euros.
