Here at The Crescent, Spanish is now our chosen language of study. Currently, Spanish is taught at most secondary schools in Hampshire. Also, our feeder secondary schools also focus on Spanish as the main language choice for KS3.
Currently, KS2 are taught one Spanish lesson a week in the afternoons. We are working on writing the date and learning objective in Spanish too!
We made the transition to Spanish during the academic year 2017-2018 whereby Mrs Staley bought in the ILanguages scheme. The ILanguages scheme works closely with a 'Talk for Writing' approach with lots of songs, visual presentations and oral work before children begin their writing activities.
As it is a new language, we have built ourselves up from the Year 3 curriculum to the Year 4. Before long, Year 5 and 6 will also be on their curriculums also!
Currently, Years 4-6 are on the Year 4 curriculum. However, upper KS2 are working through at an accelerated pace ready to start the next years curriculum before the Summer Term.
