Key Stage 3: Course Content
We look to encourage a real interest in the Spanish language and equally important, the culture of Spain itself.
In Year 7 students learn facts about Spain and Latin America, how to meet and greet people and about family members and pets.
The year begins with a revision of what was covered in Year 7 before moving to holiday activities, the weather, what they do at the weekend and food. Students will also expand on the use of the 3 main tenses; past, present and future.
In Year 9 students will learn more about Spain and Latin America including cultural differences at mealtimes. They will learn to say how they feel, about invitations, arrangements and making excuses and also talking about clothes and special occasions. This year it is important that students consolidate grammar, become more confident in speaking and practise basic role play skills.
