In year 8, most students begin learning Spanish in addition to their French lessons.
Students will learn how to:
- introduce themselves
- describe themselves and others
- explain where they live and give a detailed description about their house
- talk about school and their daily routine
- give and justify opinions
Year 9 - Curriculum Information
In year 9, students build on these foundations, widening their vocabulary and developing grammatical structures, such as different tenses.
In addition to acquiring and developing language skills, students will be exposed to the traditions of culture of the Spanish speaking world.
Key Stage 3 - How parents/carers can support their child
Parents can help be regularly looking in students books to see their sons’ responses to teachers’ comments. Students have vocabulary booklets which show words and structures in the same order in which they are taught. Parents should familiarise themselves with these and ensure that students consult these while they are completing their homework.
