Lo que aprendimos - First day of Spanish lessons 2018-19

Today was the first day of Spanish lessons in KS2.

Year 3 impressed Señora Stevens with their knowledge of Spain and Spanish. 3LS were able to tell her several countries other than Spain where Spanish is spoken, and quite a few seemed to have an encylopaedic knowledge of Spanish speaking footballers! 3JM were not to be outdone and had an enthusiastic discussion about churros and paella, and certainly win the prize for the most unusual facts about Spain that they shared. One was about a mislaid pencil case and another young man informed Señora Stevens that Spain has the biggest salt mountains in Europe. Intriguing! I wonder if these are the salt mountains he means? https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/cardona-salt-mountain They sound amazing!

Year 5 began their new topic with lots of singing! Singing is not everyone's cup of tea but both 5AG and 5MM joined in with Señora Stevens' selfpenned ode to the Simpsons, written from the point of view of Lisa, and soon knew how to talk about their parents' grandparents' aunts and uncles, and siblings in Spanish. Having done a bit of puzzling and sorting to work out a rule for deciding if a family word if masculine or feminine, the lesson ended with a spirited rendition of Tiburón Bebé which cuased great excitement and amusement not just in the classroom but also in the corridor as children waited for a meeting! Apologies to parents and families of Y5 who may be wishing Señora Stevens hadn't taught the children how to sing 'that song' in Spanish as well as English!

What do languages mean to me?

speakinhgAs Language Leaders we thought about what languages mean to us. Here are our ideas:

'Languages mean I can communicate with people and I can understand what they are saying in different languages.'

'Languages mean being an individual and when someone speaks in a different language, I find it interesting.'

'Spanish means to me learning something different to English. It is really fun and good if you travel. I love the way we learn through games. It is very enjoyable!'

'I think languages are important to me because when you go to a different country you can understand what they say.'

'I like Spanish lessons because I love playing the games and I like learning new things, and it is good for later life if you go to Spain.'

'Languages mean to me that I can learn different langauegs instead of learning just one. I also would be able to talk to people in different countries.'

'What do languages mean to us? They mean whatever language you speak, you can still communicate with everyone in the world. You can express your feelings by having someone to talk to and that means you won't be alone.'

Language Awards - Summer 2018

4365 Sp Reward Pencils Bump opt

The Whitehouse Common Language Leaders have been keeping their eyes peeled for examples of good language learning all term. As a group they decided that they were looking for perseverance, a growth mindset, enthusiasm, resilience, participation and teamwork. Last week they awarded certificates, stickers and prizes to the children that they had spotted displaying these attributes.

Congratulations to Tevish, Poppy, Jessica, Thomas, Ananya, Callum, Thomas, Hollie, Olivia, Lucas, Sam and Aliya who were chosen. We hope that the Y6s will carry these skills forward into their new schools as they learn new languages, and that they will continue to be cheerful, enthusiastic, risk taking language learners.
