At Arreton we all follow a whole-child centred approach to learning where we aim to ensure that every child is safe, healthy, engaged, supported, challenged and developed as an independent learner.

Bienvenidos/ Welcome to the Spanish section!
At Arreton St. George’s Primary, we aim to weave Spanish into our everyday life in as many ways as possible, making it an integral part of our learning rather than just an extra subject. Spanish links in with all other subjects and reinforces literacy and memory skills. By making language learning fun and relevant to our pupils we hope to foster a lifelong interest in languages, setting our students up for success wherever their learning may take them. Through learning Spanish, which is offered by all our feeder high schools, students can get a sense of how languages can be useful in their personal and professional life.
What will we be learning?
From Key Stage 1, students will be learning the basic building blocks of the Spanish language such as phonemes, grammar and syntactical structures through listening, singing and speaking. More formal written work takes place in KS2. We encourage students to become more independent learners. Being able to use a bilingual dictionary and an online dictionary is something we strive for all students to aim for by the end of Year 6. We will learn about the culture of mainland Spain as well as the many different Spanish speaking countries around the world and have made direct contact by writing to a school in Catalonia. Being able to accept and embrace differences, becoming resilient, confident learners and performers is what we hope our students will take away from their primary experience with us.
