Key Stage 4 - 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 lists 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.
Spanish music is widely available on the internet as are Spanish films. In addition, the school has a selection of Spanish films which can be made available to students.
