Spanish

At Key Stage 3 in Spanish, students develop their linguistic, cultural and grammatical knowledge of the Hispanic world using the four skill areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Whilst studying a variety of themes, the students will also learn how to apply key grammatical structures to their learning such as opinions, reasons, adjectival agreements, a range of tenses and phonics. These key skills are regularly assessed throughout the academic year in correspondence with their Learning Logs and the students receive a Knowledge Organiser, ‘Glosario’, at the start of each theme to support their learning both in and outside the classroom. The students will also complete a weekly ‘Deberes’ homework quiz on Google Classroom to practise and consolidate their learning.
