Spanish at Woodland

We are very lucky at Woodland as we have so many aspiring Spanish Speakers on our School Staff Team - we use these skills to deliver to all our pupils from Reception to Year 6, a weekly Spanish lesson. 

To further support this curriculum enrichment, we also offer throughout the school, family learning opportunities in Spanish.  Lots of our families have been part of our Family Spanish Clubs already and have loved learning alongside our very talented children.

We have listed below some of the learning our pupils will encounter this term.  They will also come home singing lots of Spanish songs as well - we all enjoy this part of our work and learning in Spanish very much and hope you all will do too!
