Hola! At Barwic Parade Community Primary School our Modern Foreign Language is now Spanish! We launched Spanish learning in school after Easter 2019, where Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children learnt about many aspects of the culture of Spain. They also learnt some Spanish greetings, numbers, colours and animals!
Early Years children listen to and join in with songs in Spanish each week. So far this year, they have learnt a greetings song, a numbers to 10 song, a colours song and Head, shoulders, knees and toes in Spanish.

Key Stage 2 are following the scheme of work from www.rachelhawkes.com

On 23rd March 2018 - 26th March 2018, some of our Year 5 children enjoyed their first foreign trip. They visited the Chateau du Broutel, Rue, France for three nights. The children experienced a French market, chocolate factory, sealife centre and the beach. All the children had a wonderful time and learnt lots about another culture.
