Languages and International Blog
Welcome to our Languages and International Blog. At Bridgewater, we have chosen Spanish as the language we teach, as it is widely spoken. This is taught to all children in years 3 to 6 by Mrs Hsu. We engage the children through playing games, singing songs and stories as well as developing their grasp of grammar and the written language. Please celebrate the children’s learning with us by commenting on the blog posts below. ¡Hasta luego!
We embrace international links and are working towards the ISA (International School Award). We have worked in partnership with Erasmus and many of the staff have enjoyed taking the opportunity to travel abroad to experience primary school practice in other countries. International links are interwoven throughout our curriculum. We hope you enjoy observing these on our blog.
South American Dance Workshop
Year 3 were lucky enough to take part in a South American dance workshops, with Rebecca who has her own dance company. They warmed up before learning a wonderful routine in either Samba, Cha cha or Tango which they then performed to eachother. They had a great time and stepped out of their comfort zone when it came to the partner work.
Well done, Year 3!
