Spanish Primary School Placements
Seven Oldham Sixth Form A-Level Spanish students completed a six week placement at St Thomas CofE Primary School in Werneth. The students spent their free periods, delivering a number of presentations in Spanish. These presentations covered a range of topics from teaching numbers, basic greetings, colours, clothes, animals, weather and parts of the body. As well as the language presentations, the OSFC students also supported classroom teachers with their Spanish lessons. We are very grateful for the opportunity our students have had to familiarise themselves with language lessons in a primary school and we are delighted to have contributed to school life and Spanish knowledge of the children.
