Languages in Reception

In the Early Years Foundation Stage, the teaching of Spanish is delivered through very close links with the class teacher. Planning, where possible, links with the topics covered in class. Teaching is delivered through songs, stories, puppet shows, interactive stories and videos, workshops, cooking and art. Children learn through games and songs and the focus is mainly on speaking and listening skills. Children are taught to answer simple questions about themselves in Spanish, often conversing with our resident puppet, Christina. They study fairy tales such as Los Tres Cerditos and Caperucita Roja (Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood), acting out small scenes as a class.
