At Shirehampton Primary School we believe in teaching a broad and balanced curriculum that enables every child to find their talents; this includes teaching a Modern Foreign Language (MFL).
We chose to teach Spanish as it is a widely spoken language and allows our children to learn abut the culture in a range of Spanish speaking countries across the world. Our Y6 children transfer onto many different secondary schools, all of whom teach Spanish.
Our MFL teacher was born in Spain and has an amazing passion for teaching children an additional language. Every class, including our Nursery, receives a weekly Spanish lesson. Senora Garcia ensures learning is fun, active and memorable. To try and keep up with the children, the staff learn one Spanish word a week!
