2018 - 2019
Subject Leader: Mrs Pearman
Children at Meadlands (KS2) learn Spanish: Los niños a Meadlands, aprenden español.
Being a multicultural school with a diverse range of languages already spoken, children love learning Spanish. We use a scheme ‘Tu y Yo’ to guide us and blend it with our own topics, the children’s interests and lots of singing and drama – our lessons are full of chatter and song as we believe this is at the root of how language is learned. Policy:
Children who speak Spanish at home are encouraged to lead in lessons and teach their peers. For example, our Junior Spanish Leader has supported visiting students from The Kingston Academy in delivering their workshops in Spring 2018.
