En Hazelwood Schools creemos que aprender un nuevo idioma es clave para formar parte de nuestra comunidad global.
At Hazelwood Schools we believe that learning a new language is key to becoming part of our global community.

We are proud to deliver our Spanish curriculum from Year 1. Through these lessons, we strive to create awe and wonder through real, relevant, immersive and purposeful experiences.

Our intent is that all pupils will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity for foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating. Learning a second or even third language for some Hazelwood children will offer them the opportunity to explore relationships between language and identity. Children will develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences.

The aims of our Spanish Curriculum are:

  • To engage our children using a wide variety of topics and themes, enabling them to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity.
  • To continually improve the accuracy of pronunciation and intonation.
  • To teach the four key language learning skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing as well as covering all necessary grammar in an age- appropriate way across the primary phase.
  • To enable children to use and apply their learning in a variety of contexts.
  • To ensure the Spanish language knowledge of our children progresses within each academic year and is extended year upon year throughout the primary phase.
  • To lay down solid foundations for our children to become life-long language learners.


¡un día español increíble!

What an amazing Spanish Day we all had on Friday 7th October!

The children were fully immersed in all things Spanish, with each Year Group focusing on a particular Spanish-speaking country. On top of this, every Year Group had the opportunity to learn a Latin Dance, eat some tasty churros and order a drink in Spanish, play an orienteering and parachute game using Spanish instructions and dress up in clothes from their given country. Our Nursery children enjoyed learning the cha cha cha dance and exploring their virtual classroom. Year 6 were also treated to an extra Spanish lesson from students from Winchmore Secondary School. At the end of the day, everyone from Year 1-6 came together in the playground to do a whole school Latin Dance... Excelente! 

We were very lucky to have some fantastic Spanish speaking parents who volunteered for the day to both cook and serve the churros to every child with the help too of our Spanish ambassadors from Year 4, 5 and 6!

From every corner of the school, children were buzzing with excitement immersed in some form of Spanish activity...

Check out Year 6 and their Latin Dance moves...
