Over the course of the year, Year 3 children continue to draw on the vocabulary already learnt in Key Stage 1 whilst learning much more Spanish vocabulary linked with their class topics, where appropriate.
We have a 45 minute session each week where we have fun with songs, games, puppets, stories and written activities. We continue to develop a love of language learning, have fun and also reflect upon the cultural aspects of being a language learner, recognising the cultural differences and similarities associated with each topic. From Year 3 we record our work in exercise books. Children begin to construct short Spanish sentences, both spoken and in written work, with appropriate scaffolding and support.
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.
