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 Hsu. 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 embrace international links and are working towards the ISA (International School Award). We have worked in partnership with Erasmus and many of the staff have enjoyed taking the opportunity to travel abroad to experience primary school practice in other countries. International links are interwoven throughout our curriculum. We hope you enjoy observing these on our blog.


Like last year, we have looked at how Christmas is celebrated around the World and how Merry Christmas is said in a range of languages. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Animals and Habitats

We have been singing a song about animals and habitats in Year 4 as part of our learning.  We have then created our own versions of the first verse.  With the help of bilingual dictionaries, the children found the animal names and habitats in Spanish. They then used the outside area to collect items for their habitats made from clay and created their animals using plasticene.
