Languages at Henry Whipple
At Henry Whipple we believe in the teaching of a foreign language throughout our school, including not only a grasp of the language but also an understanding and appreciation of cultures and traditions.
Key Stage 1 and foundation are taught short focussed Spanish lessons once a week including songs, rhymes, counting and games. Key Stage 2 have more formal approach to the teaching of Spanish and are taught for 1 hour every other week by a specialist language teacher- Mrs Burdell.
