Spanish

At Upperwood Academy, we are committed to providing our children with opportunities to learn an additional language. We have selected the Spanish language for our children to learn in Key Stage Two as this links in with Geography learning and is likely for some of our pupils to be a chosen holiday destination. And most importantly because this is the language that the local feeder secondary school teach. 

To ensure maximum progression and repeated coverage of knowledge and skills, we build upon areas of knowledge to embed this knowledge. A weekly lesson incorporating speaking, listening, reading and writing activities builds our knowledge. Links are made with other curriculum areas where possible.
