Our subject leaders and teachers have looked closely to identify well-chosen knowledge and vocabulary for each topic that we want children to learn, understand and remember. Click below to find out more.
Spanish Vowel Song
In Year 5 we have been applying our knowledge of the Spanish vowels. The children were set the challenge of learning this Spanish song all about the vowels off by heart. It was tough and only two children managed the song in full. What an achievement! Well done.
In Year 5 we've been learning the phonics of ca, co, cu. The children had to work in pairs to practise the sounds. Some letters were then removed to make it trickier. They still did very well with this extra challenge - watch the here: IMG_0315.MOV
Spanish Salsa Day
On Thursday 24th November we had a visit from Pedro, a Cuban salsa teacher. He did not speak any English so we had to communicate with him in Spanish. He gave everyone in KS2 a half hour salsa lesson which was great fun. Most children understood the numbers he used, forwards and backwards, left and right. He then came into each class and we were able to ask him all sorts of questions and Mrs.Wilkinson translated. Year 6 asked their questions in Spanish.
Here is class 5 learning a dance and listening to and following the instructions in Spanish.
