Languages and International Blog

Welcome to our Languages and International Blog. At Bridgewater, we have chosen Spanish as the language we teach, as it is widely spoken. This is taught to all children in years 3 to 6 by Mrs D'Agostini. We engage the children through playing games, singing songs and stories as well as developing their grasp of grammar and the written language. Please celebrate the children’s learning with us by commenting on the blog posts below. ¡Hasta luego!

We have been accredited with the International School Award (ISA) 2022-2025 in recognition of our international focus. We were praised by the British Council for our commitment to embedding a rich and creative range of international work.

Mexican Hot Chocolate

As a final Mexican-themed activity, years 5 and 6 had the opportunity to try Mexican-style hot chocolate.  We added chocolate sauce, ground cinnamon and chilli powder to chocolate powder to make the drink.  We had many positive responses when tasting it and realised that we only needed to add a little chilli powder!

We have been exploring Mexico around the school! We have been learning about the Mexican flag, Mexican food including discussing our recent Taco Tuesday, music and dance as well as popular games both inside and outside the classroom.  

Children in Early Years created the flag with different materials including modelling, Key Stage 1 explored Mexico before looking at the animals in the flag and making their own.  Children in Lower Key Stage 2 created patterns inspired by Aztec designs using pegs and painting bunting.  Upper Key Stage 2 children played traditional dice games.  During lunchtime, we danced some traditional dances, played a Mexican version of hopscotch and sang songs in a circle.  We are continuing our Mexican focus in Year 5, including looking at the artist Frida Kahlo and traditional Mexican songs played by Mariachi bands.  Mexican hot chocolate will also be included!  Our fantastic Language Ambassadors again helped brilliantly with the range of activities across the school!
