At Shacklewell Primary School, our aim is to embed Spanish in our local community for the pupils to understand the purpose of learning a Modern Foreign Language.
Learning a new language is key to securing our positions in the global community we live in and by setting a starting point in our school, we can aim towards achieving this objective. The learning of a second language will help the children to be successful in their professional future and to feel included in the wider society. At this stage our objective is to build children’s curiosity and to develop a passion for Spanish.
We provide the children with engaging and fun activities to develop their linguistics skills and build on their enthusiasm and engagement. This begins in EYFS with informal lessons and educational games all the way to KS2, where the pupils will start to demonstrate an understanding of basic grammar and listening skills.
