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.

Forest School

Year 5 have enjoyed our Forest School area, exploring combustion which is linked to their work in Science.  They toasted marshmallows to make s'mores and enjoyed sampling the results!  They also explored the area by finding different items such as kindling and knots and looked at the Spanish words for marshmallows and chocolate biscuits. It was a cold, crisp day with sunshine making it a good opportunity to describe the weather!

Spanish around School

This term, children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have had an opportunity to join in with Spanish songs to practise colours and numbers. The songs helped them begin learning the colours and use them in activities including colour by number and tile designs.  It has been a delight hearing the children saying Spanish words and greeting others around the school!
