This year all children in Key Stage Two have been learning Spanish and are getting really good with their pronunciations. They have been learning lots of fantastic new words and phrases and are counting up to 40.

In line with The National Curriculum, the children can now do the following:

Listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding 

Explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words 

Engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help

Speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures 

Develop accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases

Present ideas and information orally to a range of audiences

Read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing


As well as learning how to speak Spanish, we have also looked at different Spanish artists too. Here is a sample of work that Year 5 did recently, based on the artist Fransisco Goya
