Spanish at Jubilee

Subject leader: Cheryl Couldwell


We have chosen to learn Spanish as our Modern Foreign Language at Jubilee.

All Key Stage 2 classes spend half an hour a week learning how to have basic conversations in Spanish, and learning about the cultures and traditions in different Spanish-speaking countries.

At Jubilee we believe that learning a language is important as it helps our children to understand their place within a global society. Children are able to learn about the lives of other children around the world. We are keen to particularly keen to celebrate Spanish as we have such a large community of Spanish-speaking children at our school.

Some of the topics covered in Spanish are:

  • Numbers
  • Colours
  • Introductions and greetings
  • Our family
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Describing our appearance and personality
  • Hobbies and interests

Each term we will learn about a different festival or holiday in a Spanish-speaking country – for example this term we have been learning about the Dia de los muertos celebrations in Mexico!

Our Spanish work will be supported by the online scheme at Have a look at their website if you would like to find out more about it.
