At Vita et Pax, we are proud to offer Spanish from EYFS to Year 6. Lessons are taught by a dedicated native specialist teacher. EYFS and KS1 develop an ear and taste for the language through songs, props, stories and videos. KS2 learn with a variety of multimedia resources aimed at developing the four skills fundamental to the learning of a language: speaking, listening, reading and writing. An emphasis on grammar is also in place to prepare Y5 and Y6 for their next stage learning Spanish in Secondary School.
We use and combine books in print, activity sheets, props and games. We use role play in our lessons as a tool to give context to the learning; while boosting the pupils’ confidence in the use of the language. ICT and video play an important part in our teaching. We use digital technology to record and showcase pupils’ language use through audio visual projects.
