Hello and welcome to the Spanish department at ICG.
Here at ICG all pupils study Spanish. The skill of speaking another language is invaluable and can open up many doors to the world that may otherwise be closed.
If you enjoy learning new things by playing games, like travelling to or are interested in how people live in other countries, then learning how to speak Spanish will help you achieve this.
As well as broadening your horizons, learning Spanish also increases career opportunities in an ever-growing European, and indeed global, market.
Pupils have the opportunity to work individually, in pairs and in groups. Listening, speaking, reading and writing skills are enhanced through the use of ICT.
At Key Stage 3 our learning and teaching is based on the VIVA series for Spanish.
In Year 8 we learn greetings, age, birthdays and dates, likes and dislikes, hobbies, colours, pets, family, countries and nationality.
In Year 9 we cover physical descriptions, personality, school subjects, giving opinions with reasons, school timetable, food, computers and mobile phones, sport.
In Year 10 we study town/village, what there is to see and do there, going on holiday, getting ready to go out and buying drinks and snacks.
Key Stage 4
GCSE (CCEA) Spanish aims to develop the ability to communicate effectively in Spanish and to understand Spanish in a variety of contexts. It also develops awareness and understanding of countries and communities where Spanish is spoken.
