Spanish Curriculum Statement

In St Oswald's we want to provide many opportunities for our children to widen their experiences. Children from Year 3 to Year 6 all partake in a Spanish session each week. We have a Spanish teacher  called Mrs Lees who works with Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 on a Thursday. Year 3 are taught by their Class teacher under the guidance of Mrs Lees. She follows a comprehensive scheme of work called Language Angels which provides opportunities for both oral and written outcomes. It also provides children with the opportunities to hear native Spanish speakers and model their pronunciation. 

Language Angels resources - how they work

Language Angels award-winning language teaching resources are designed to allow primary school teachers, irrespective of their linguistic ability, to teach the foreign language of their choice.

With more than 26 teaching units (each designed to run for 6 weeks) there are enough Language Angels resources to enable you to teach the language of your choice for 4 complete school years.

All units are organised into easy to understand, clearly defined categories that enable you to pick the right unit for the level of ability of each class.

Units vary from easiest Early Language Units(which are ideal for children with little or no previous foreign language knowledge) to our Intermediate Units (ideal for pupils building up their foreign language expertise) through our Creative Curriculum Units (which tie in to familiar curriculum topics) and finally to our Progressive Units (which are great for extending and challenging pupils with a sound understanding of the basics of the language they are learning).

European Languages Day 2019

For European Langauges Day 2019, each class explored an element of Spain. Whether it be their culture, language, food or famous Spanish people. At the end of the week, we then showcased all our wonderful findings during our whole school celebration assembly. These ranged from written pieces to dances. It was a truly wonderful afternoon in which the children all enjoyed celebrating everyone's successes. 

This is what we all did:

Nursery/ Reception: We learnt Spanish nursery rhymes and some Spanish counting. Uno, dos, tres ... 

Year 1: We learnt the Spanish for facial features and made our own funny faces. 

Year 2: Cooked our own tapas including; patatas bravas and albondigas. Mmm yummy!

Year 3: Learnt a traditional Spanish dance and showcased our efforts to the whole school. 

Year 4: Looked at and studied Guadi creating our own mosaic masterpieces!

Year 5: Learnt about famous Spanish people. 

Year 6: Looked at the festival Los Tomantina, Bull fighting and also Bull Running. We created balanced arguments as to whether running with the bulls should be allowed due to animal rights. 


Spanish Spelling Bee

In July 4 children from Year 5 were lucky enough to take part in the annual Spanish Spelling Bee at Litherland High School. The children had to learn how to spell 20 words in Spanish, some examples were colours, numbers and basic greetings. They children were very professional in thier approach and made sure that they practised every day. Luckily their hard work paid off and they came away with 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th place. Well done children we are all extremely proud of you.
