Learn Spanish with Luis y Sofía will provide you with a wealth of creative teaching ideas, all linked to the Foreign Language Programmes of Study in September 2014 National Curriculum.
Learn Spanish with Luis y Sofía is a story-based approach to teaching Spanish at Key Stage 2. 1a Parte (Part 1) is for Years 3–4 and 2a Parte (Part 2) is for Years 5–6.
Each unit is based around a story featuring a young brother (Luis) and sister (Sofía) and their friends and family. The topic-based stories are written entirely in Spanish, use simple sentences and introduce key vocabulary and language structures.
Both parts include audio-enhanced e-storybooks for each of the 14 stories. The stories are acted out by native Spanish speakers bringing the stories to life. The e-storybooks can be shared with the class using an interactive whiteboard, read individually or in small groups.
The teacherʼs book contains lesson plans, translations of the stories and exercises, games and activities focusing on enabling pupils to communicate in Spanish.
The scheme is designed with non-specialists in mind and will make implementing the new National Curriculum for England easy. Self-assessment sheets make it easy to monitor children's progress and ensure coverage of all the Programmes of Study.
