Spanish

FreshSteps have introduced Spanish to the curriculum this year across all phases from primary to secondary. 

Pupils will learn: 

  • Greetings
  • Numbers
  • Colours
  • Places of interest
  • Countries
  • Labels - objects and people
  • Food

We aim in the future to introduce the 'Zoom' Spanish scheme of work for those showing exceptional ability and potential to enter an exam. 

Our aim is to foster a love of languages and independence in language-learning. We ensure lessons are hands-on and engaging to enable pupils to write and speak creatively, we also encourage students to communicate using their language, to make mistakes and learn from these. We teach ‘tourism language’ such as ‘en el hotel’ as well as how to use more formal language.

Possessing the ability to speak more than one language is no longer a luxury but a necessity in the current economic climate, and with language-learning regularly in the headlines thanks to the developments arising from Brexit, we look forward to helping pupils to benefit from their language studies in the future.
