Over the course of the year, Reception children learn how to say hello, count to ten, say the colours in Spanish and learn Spanish vocabulary linked with each of their class topics, where appropriate.
We have a twenty minute session each week where we have fun with songs, games, puppets and stories. We begin to develop a love of language learning, have fun and also reflect upon the cultural aspects of being a language learner.
Children are taught that Spanish is spoken all over the world and that multiculturalism is a celebration of all communities, beliefs, languages and cultures - across our school and the wider demographic. We celebrate all of the languages that the children also speak at home and often discuss the new words in Spanish, English and any other languages that the children might know.
