At Clentry Nursery we are in the very early stages of implementing the 1+2 strategy. The training offered by this immersion course will equip the applicant with the latest skills and competences to lead initiatives to promote learning modern languages in the early years. The applicant will develop a cultural awareness of another European country that will be shared with children, colleagues and parents. Using the E-twinning portal the applicant will work together with teachers in a different European country to share ideas and exchange best practice in teaching a modern language. This will create a European dimension in our nursery with the children being more aware of their place in the wider world.During the immersion course the applicant will develop her understanding of using the Internet and ICT resources to enhance the teaching and learning of modern languages. This learning will be shared with staff in the nursery and all colleagues will be provided with the necessary skills and competences to integrate Spanish into daily routines in the nursery. In the long term this will create a team who work together to develop pedagogical strategies for delivering modern languages to young learners. Learning will also be shared with parents and the wider community by creating an interactive display and by producing a leaflet in an attempt to develop their language skills and engage them in their children's learning.After the immersion course the applicant will evaluate the impact on all learners. This will include having observations by the head teacher and colleagues. These observations will provide a starting point for professional dialogue between staff and will enable the applicant and all staff involved to identify future development needs and continually improve the delivery of modern languages in our early years setting.
