At Tanworth-in-Arden, children learn


from Year 3 - Year 6

9 Reasons To Learn Spanish

There are lots of reasons why we learn Spanish at Tanworth!
One of the reasons is because Spanish is taught at lots of secondary schools in the local area. We support children's language learning by developing an early love for the language alongside an understanding of important basic skills and vocabulary before children move on to their new schools and next stage in their MFL journey! Another reason is because many of our children holiday frequently in Spain so have the opportunity to try out the language in a real-life setting!
However, there are so many more reasons to learn Spanish... Check out the video that we share with children below...

Examples of our Spanish work

How is Spanish taught?


During Spanish lessons, children develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills through a variety of strategies such as conversation, videos, songs, stories, games and paired work. Spanish lessons are designed to be interactive and fun in order to foster a love of the language!

Throughout KS2, children are given the opportunity to revisit topics and concepts in order to consolidate any gaps in their learning and develop their use of vocabulary in a range of contexts.
