Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, being spoken in much of Latin America as well as in Spain.
We are passionate about the learning of languages in Fisher More, as we believe they not only open up a wealth of employment opportunities in the future, but they also encourage respect and understanding between cultures.
All pupils arrive at Fisher More from the feeder primaries with different experiences of language learning so we try to make their transition as smooth and stress free as possible by focusing on active learning. We get them talking, singing and expressing their ideas and opinions. They are encouraged to engage in enjoyable activities in a lively, friendly and team-focused environment
Throughout Key Stage 3 pupils are taught a variety of core vocabulary in Spanish, giving them the ability to very quickly construct phrases and sentences to express feelings and give descriptions. Much of the language learnt in the early stages of Year 7 is transferrable to the topics they will study through to Year 9. At Key Stage 4 classes build on the huge bank of vocabulary and grammar knowledge gleaned in lower school and extend it to prepare them to undertake confidently the requirements of the Spanish Edexel GCSE
