Oatlands School - Spanish - Progress Report
TEACHERS: CAROLINE MEARES YEAR 1 and PALOMA CRESPO YEAR 2
TERM SUMMER 2019
Our aim is to ensure children understand and learn to love the culture of Spain and to gain good
listening and speaking skills. We use lively role play, games, bingos, songs and activities to make
Spanish culture both enjoyable and memorable.
It is a pleasure to teach your children and I hope they enjoy as much as we do. If you have specific
questions, please see me after the club or send an email to email@example.com
