Spanish at Springfield

Hola y bienvenidos a Spanish@Springfield!


We are very passionate about learning languages at Springfield Primary School. From EYFS to Year 6, we enjoy learning Spanish, and understanding more about the culture of Spanish-speaking countries. Spanish learning at Springfield is fun, and our dedicated team of Spanish teachers have been visiting Spain, courtesy of British Council/Erasmus+ funding, to develop their knowledge of the language.


Look out for links, videos and news of our latest developments!


Hasta la proxima! 


Year 6 - The children were given a Spanish text to read. They had to identify familiar vocabulary and then work out what type of text it was. They all succeeded in discovering that it was a weather forecast. Can you work out what weather was predicted for each day?

Year 6 - Children studied the recipe for the Spanish dessert Flan de Caramelo and learned the ingredients and method in Spanish. As a treat, they got to taste this dessert and then explain whether they liked it or not. I think they quite enjoyed it!

Santander Success!

During the whit break, a group of 8 Springfield teachers went on a course in Santander to learn Spanish (or build upon existing skills) and explore the culture. It was a fantastic week jam-packed full of lessons, activities and few extra-curricular expeditions. From learning to Flamenco to hiking to trying new and wonderful food, the whole experience have left teachers with an eagerness to take their new learning back into the classroom.


We were also fortunate enough to form a link with an amazing school in Santander - Colegio Calasanz ( ) As seen from the photos, we had a wonderful morning at the school, making new friends with Spanish colleagues. Many thanks to Mario Pianno (Year 3 teacher, and languages coordinator) who organised the whole experience. We all had the opportunity to teach or take part in a lesson, and were amazed by the high level of English spoken. We finished our experience with a meeting with the "Directora" Violeta Landeras to discuss possible ways of linking our schools together in future partnerships. Needless to say, we are all very excited about building the next steps. Watch this space for further updates...
