“It is the most rewarding thing to know that my culture is appreciated through my teaching.”

We currently offer children in the whole school lessons in Spanish! Hola!

We have a wonderful exchange teacher name Maria – a Spanish National – who comes in and teaches / assists staff in the delivery of Spanish. Children learn a wide variety of topics within the language, from basic conversation to colours, numbers and food. Additionally, pupils are given a taste of Spanish culture throughout the year, experiencing different traditions from Spain.

Try out some home learning with Maria…

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.

Curriculum Intent

At Rudston Primary School, we believe that learning a modern foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. We want to expand their personal horizons, instil in them a love of learning and to foster inquisitive minds, resilience, self-motivation and respect for all.

At Rudston we are committed to teaching Spanish to every child from Year 2 to Year 6. By learning another language, we give our children a new perspective on the world, encourage them to understand their own cultures, their own languages, and that of others.

Children leave Rudston, with confidence in sharing their Spanish skills, as well as understanding and respect for the Spanish culture, lifestyle and custom. At Rudston we believe that through our Spanish curriculum we prepare our children for the next steps in their education and for the future beyond.
