Southborough C of E Primary School

Modern Foreign Languages

French is taught to children across KS2. Staff use centralised schemes of work which are supplemented with websites such as EducationCity and BBC Schools Primary Languages. New language is taught through games, songs and stories which the children find exciting and fun!

Towards the end of KS2 children also learn Spanish in preparation for the Year 6 trip to Madrid.

Year 6 Visit Madrid

Our Spanish school link with Parque de Lisboa in Alcorcon gives us the opportunity to introduce basic Spanish. The Spanish students visit in April and have tea with their Year 6 penpals.

Our Year 6 pupils then have the fantastic experience of flying to Madrid in June. Children are motivated by the opportunity to meet their pen pals once they reach Year 6, these exchange visits and regular correspondence allows children to form a bond with their penpals in Spain.
