We have chosen to learn Spanish as our Modern Foreign Language at Jubilee.
All Key Stage 2 classes spend half an hour a week learning how to have basic conversations in Spanish, and learning about the cultures and traditions in different Spanish-speaking countries.
At Jubilee we believe that learning a language is important as it helps our children to understand their place within a global society. Children are able to learn about the lives of other children around the world. We are keen to particularly keen to celebrate Spanish as we have such a large community of Spanish-speaking children at our school.
Some of the topics covered in Spanish are:
- - Numbers
- - Colours
- - Introductions and greetings
- - Our family
- - Likes and dislikes
- - Describing our appearance and personality
- - Hobbies and interests
Each term we will learn about a different festival or holiday in a Spanish-speaking country – for example this term we have been learning about the Dia de los muertos celebrations in Mexico!
Our Spanish work will be supported by the online scheme at http://www.speekee.com. Have a look at their website if you would like to find out more about it.
