When Key Stage 2 pupils were asked which foreign language they would like to learn, they voted for Spanish. We therefore employ a specialist teacher to deliver a programme of language and cultural development from Year 3 to Year 6, on a weekly basis.
In addition, we are working in partnership with a primary school in Spain, CEIP Eduardo Pondal. It is located in Ponteceso, Galicia (North Spain). You can visit their website here:
A number of Year 5/6 children have been paired up with penpals from the school, and they regularly exchange letters and cards. They can also speak with them directly via Skype most weeks.
Our Language Coordinator is also a former French Teacher, and is now offering a lunchtime French Club to Year 5 and 6 pupils.
We are taking part in a Modern Foreign Language project run by the Nottingham Trent University, which offers a group of Key Stage 2 pupils the chance to learn German over a 6-week course.
There is also news that Latin will soon be introduced with the help of Nottingham Trent University…. Watch this space!
