Spanish is one of the most spoken languages in the world. At Spring Parks Primary School, each class has a one hour Spanish lesson where the students are given the opportunity to develop an understanding of the Spanish language, its speakers, culture and learn about the countries where Spanish is spoken.
Students at each level learn specific skills relevant to their stage of development.
The following are some examples of the learning that takes place at each level:
- Foundation Level – Students begin to use and respond to basic Spanish language related to topics such as self and family
- Levels 1 and 2 – Students start to understand and use Spanish in more structured situations and activities related to self, family, home, classroom and community
- Levels 3 and 4 – Students consolidate their learning and begin to extend their personal vocabulary and knowledge of the Spanish language structures
- Levels 5 and 6 – Students begin to understand, use and extend their Spanish vocabulary within the world of their own experience and imagination
