Year 5

Over the course of the year, Year 5 children continue to draw on the vocabulary already learnt during their time at ERPS whilst learning much more Spanish vocabulary on a range of interesting topics.


We have a 45 minute session each week where we have fun with songs, games, stories, listening tasks 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. Written work is recorded in our exercise books. Children are increasingly able to construct short Spanish sentences, in spoken, listening and written work, with appropriate scaffolding and support. 


Children are aware 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. We begin to recognised key grammatical features of the Spanish language and explore key verbs in the present tense.
