The Pontypridd High Cluster of Primary Schools are working together with Pontypridd High School to promote Modern Foreign Language learning (MFL) amongst pupils.


Therefore this year we will be visited by a staff member from Pontypridd High who will give us a taste of Spanish language learning, whilst we embrace Spanish culture, history and art.

During this project, we will:

  • Research using a variety of methods and present information linked to our enquiries.
  • Collect data to compare and contrast Spain and Wales.
  • Observe and experiment with traditional Flamenco moves to create a dance for a piece of music created by ourselves.
  • Discover and explore the work of Gaudi.
  • Investigate the forces that surround travelling by boat and plane.
  • Invent a electronical device to provide light.
  • Learn features of Spanish traditions to inspire our own creative writing.
