Since September 2014, all primaries schools in the UK have to introduce and teach MFL (Modern Foreign Language) to KS2 pupils. The MFL national curriculum includes topics such as introducing yourself; hobbies and family; numbers; animals; food and shopping. At St. Catherine's we teach Spanish or Castellano. We strive to keep our lessons interactive and in our classes pupils play games, sing and act. We use videos to teach the values, culture and beliefs of Spanish speaking countries as well as the differences between Spanish from Spain and Spanish from the Americas, including the USA (Spanish is also an official language over there).
