At Willowcroft this year, children throughout Key Stage 2 will learn either French or Spanish. Each class will spend up to an hour per week learning their new language in order to make all children feel confident in MFL ready for their transition to secondary school.
French is taught via the programme Salut which is very interactive, teaching key vocabulary and phrases through group activities, games and songs.
Children in Year 5 and 6 will receive weekly Spanish lessons from our very own Mr Cordero. Again, key vocabulary will be learnt via games and songs to ensure that lessons are engaging and accessible for all children.
In past years, children in Year 5 and 6 have enjoyed corresponding with a pen pal. This is something that the children have found invaluable and we hope to be able to facilitate this again this academic year!
