Spanish at Playbox Nursery

Maria has been teaching the children Spanish through songs and stories.  Every week Maria reads a story that is well known to the children in Spanish and teaches them key words in her native language.  The children’s favourite story so far has been Los Tres Cerditos (The Three Little Pigs). 

The children have also been learning a number of different nursery rhymes in Spanish and have been singing them around the nursery and at home.  The children love to sing Incy Wincy Araña (Incy Wincy Spider) and Estrellita Donde Estás (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star), they have recently started learning En La Casa De Pepito (Old McDonald Had A Farm) with the help of our new Spanish puppet Margarita.

Whilst the children are having fun singing the songs they are learning a valuable and lifelong skill.  Studies suggest that at an academic level, children who learn an additional language are more creative, better at solving complex problems and usually score higher on standardised tests.
