At St Luke's Halsall CE Primary School we are linguistics, studying Spanish. We start to learn Spanish in Year 3. We believe that learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. Learning Spanish helps us to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen our understanding of the world. We try to express our ideas and thoughts in Spanish and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. Learning Spanish provides opportunities for us to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking. Learning Spanish provides us with the foundation for learning further languages, equipping us to study and work in other countries.
To see the sorts of things we learn, please look at our curriculum maps for Spanish.
