All children value the importance of communication through a variety of languages

At Cherry Tree we celebrate the huge variety of languages spoken and we introduce our children, specifically to Spanish when they join the school community. This begins with simple vocabulary and an awareness of the geography of Spain and other Spanish speaking nations in EYFS, and in Key Stage 2 children have weekly sessions to explore cross curricular themes in more depth, which fully prepares them for continuing to develop their modern foreign languages skills at secondary level. These themes are linked to the overarching half term topics.
