Year 7 Admiral/X30 Getting Smart in Spanish

This term Year 7 Admiral are learning to talk about where they live. Today they met the vocabulary for rooms in a home, and they worked together to build sentences to describe a house. Each student in the group had a role to play: one identified the graphic and reported it to the person acting as the dictionary. It was their job to use the sentence builder to make a sentence in Spanish. The scribe had the responsibility of writing the sentence alongside the graphic, and then the proofreader checked for accuracy. Students met their HOWLs target of “I can show kindness by working well with other people in my group” and then they were also able to report back in Spanish about what rooms were contained in their house. ¡Muy buen trabajo!

XP Students visit New College for Spanish Taster Day

Two of our Year 10 students and one Year 8 student visited New College today to experience A Level Spanish. Students worked with current Year 12 and Year 13 students to improve their speaking skills. They talked about what their lives would be like if they lived in Spain, building on previously learnt vocabulary and grammar, and adding new language through conversation. They also looked at careers where languages can be an advantage.
