Hola! Bienvenidos a español! Welcome to Spanish!

Spanish is the Modern Foreign Language taught at St. Ignatius. In KS2, children from Years 3 to 6 cover a range of subject phrases and vocabulary, as well as the four skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing. Audio/visual resources, songs and interesting activities make the lessons dynamic and fun.

The emphasis is on communication, so each lesson provides regular opportunities to practise the target language and to develop confidence in speaking. This is done through partner-talk, group activities and role play.

We are very fortunate to have a number of Spanish-speaking children in school who enjoy the opportunity to act as ‘profesores pequeños’ (little teachers) within the lessons. Their knowledge and experience is an added resource for us, while also being a great example of successful peer teaching.
