  37. 37. then WHCPS would own a part of FCB" We could buy a season ticket...
  38. 38. “We could make Spanish recipes” “We could taste and evaluate the different foods” “We could do something creative linked to the zoo. Go on a trip to a zoo in England and find similarities and differences”. “The infants could name the animals in Spanish” “We could learn the Barcelona anthem in Spanish and English” “We could do a project on Barcelona FC” We can compare football in England and Spain”
  39. 39. “We can write setting descriptions” ! “We can make our own Gaudi style models” “We can use the photos to create a story” “We can play Spanish sports in PE” “We could look at where the different football players come from using atlases and maps” “We could debate about how close people should be able to get to animals in the zoo!”
  40. 40. The children’s perception of CLIL: ! “We could use the different books to learn more Spanish and find out about our topics” ! “I think we could use the pop up books to explore pop ups and levers in DT and learn Spanish too” ! “We can give each year group books that link to their topics in History, Geography, Science and Art”

  46. 46. Taking ownership “Sí podemos”
  47. 47. “ … coming over to Spain… …totally immersing yourself in Spanish life, makes the idea of teaching through another language much less daunting. ! I have begun to approach everything we see and do from a different perspective… … ! I am beginning to see it through the eyes of a language teacher and can see and understand the benefits of language and learning complimenting each other rather than the teaching of language being purely words. ! The learning will be relevant and exciting for the children and the language will become embedded as part of the learning journey.”
  48. 48. Facing a world of opportunity ! “I have found the whole experience of Barcelona inspiring, thrilling and overwhelming. ! There are exciting times ahead and, with everyone on board, there is the potential for innovative and forward thinking teaching to find a significant and relevant place in Whitehouse Common Primary School.”
