After-school Spanish club at Infant/Nursery School

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by guagua19, Jan 4, 2012.

  1. Hi there! I have been asked to start an after-school Spanish club at a combined Infant/Nursery School by the headmaster.

    This is a really exciting opportunity for me, because I completed 3/4 of my NQT at a secondary school last year and have decided that I definitely do not want to continue in secondary education. (I realise that the after-school club will not in any way contribute to the last part of outstanding NQT year.) Last terms I assisted with two Year 2 Spanish classes as it is likely that I will also be teaching one of the classes Spanish once a fortnight.

    My question is: does anyone have any ideas about the best format / framework for the after-school club? Although the children are young , they are enthusiastic (as I gather there is already a waiting list) and the headmaster is very keen for Spanish to be taught at the the school. Being a club, I think that the primary focus should be about having fun through learning, so lots of songs, games, activities etc, but would appreciate any input about the forma/framework which caters for this age group (mostly Year 2s I think) to ensure full participation and motivation.

    Thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give me!

    Cheers
