¡Bienvenidos!- Welcome to the Spanish page.
The Spanish classroom can be found in the Creation Station. The ‘ARDILLAS ROJAS’= red squirrels come right up to our windows and we have our very own ‘ HUERTA’- vegetable patch where we have grown strawberries, chickpeas, peas, beans, garlic, cucumbers, carrots, radishes and rosemary. This autumn we will grow lettuce and Pak choi.
At Oakfield Primary we aim to weave Spanish into our everyday life in as many ways as possible, making it an integral part of our learning rather than just an extra subject. Spanish links in with all other subjects and reinforces literacy and memory skills. By making language learning fun and relevant to our pupils we hope to foster a lifelong interest in languages. we hope our children will respect and value diversity armed with the skills to become successful in an increasingly global working environment.
What will we be learning?
All lessons are delivered by our Specialist Language Teacher, Señorita Wright. We will be learning the basic building blocks of the Spanish language such as the 20 different phonemes, grammar and word order. Being able to use a bilingual dictionary and an online dictionary by the end of year 6 helps students to become more independent, confident learners. We will research the culture of mainland Spain as well as the many different Spanish speaking countries around the world.
