Modern Foreign Languages

İBienvenidos a nuestra página de español!


At Northcote we love to learn languages! Children enjoy Spanish lessons from our Foreign Language Assistant called Teresa. They love to learn through songs, games and role play and are keen to develop the four skill areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing.


We also aim to use as much Spanish as we can throughout the school day. This includes taking the register in Spanish, giving simple instructions in Spanish and the children asking any questions using their language skills.


Each year we enjoy ‘Spanish Week’. This is a celebration of our language skills we have acquired. It is also a celebration of culture and children take part in a variety of cultural activities, some of which include: Flamenco dancing, Spanish cooking and food tasting, Spanish games led by year 5 and year 6 language ambassadors and studying Spanish artists and musicians.


To improve our language skills further and to gain a deeper understanding of different cultures, we have recently made a partnership with a school in Malaga, Spain! We are very excited to learn more about our Spanish friends and practise our language skills in a real-life context. Please keep checking our webpage for regular updates!

We have completed a bilingual tour of our school to show Parque Clavero!

Not only are we keen to celebrate and learn about the Spanish culture, but we also celebrate the cultures of pupils and staff within our school. Pupils enjoy sharing information about their home life and enjoy teaching their class and teacher phrases from languages they speak!

Spanish week has seen some wonderful use of Spanish language, lots of learning about Spanish culture and lots of fun!

It is clear we have lots of budding linguists at Northcote and we hope to hear them continue to develop their brilliant Spanish. Keep it up!
