‘If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language that goes to his heart.’ - Nelson Mandela
At TSM we state that we want children to be confident, independent learners who are global citizens and are equipped with skills for the future. The intent is that all pupils will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about Spanish, finding it enjoyable and stimulating. Learning a second language will also offer pupils the opportunity to explore relationships between language and identity, develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences. The intention is that they will be working towards becoming life-long language learners. At TSM, the modern foreign language we have chosen to learn is Spanish. Children are taught through 4 key areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. TSM use the Language Angels scheme of work to support children in learning Spanish.
