Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)

The children at Beacon View have recently started learning a modern foreign language.  The language they are learning is Spanish.  Spanish has been chosen because it is the one of the most widely spoken languages in the World.

 

At Beacon View we use the scheme Espanol!Espanol! to teach the children how to speak Spanish.  We also have a member of staff who is fluent in Spanish and so able to offer help and support with planning and teaching to all teachers. 

To find out more information about these schemes please follow this link: https://www.language-factory.co.uk/products/espanol-espanol

The children will start by learning greetings and nursery rhymes, they will also be learning things such as the months of the year and the days of the week.
