Spanish Books & Teaching Resources
Our Spanish teachers (and kids) really need more books and teaching resources.Before 2015 there was no Spanish stream at Europa. Since then budgets have been very tight. Despite a valuable PTA grant, inevitably there are still far fewer Spanish books than French or German in the primary library and barely enough Spanish resources in several EE classrooms.Since 2017, the current 4EE class has started each school year with insufficient textbooks and resources to do guided reading and reading at home, until half term or Christmas. 2EE, 3EE and 4EE still really need a wider range of reading books. We want the future 5EE to have enough resources from the start of the year.This term 2EE and 4EE parents have already donated nearly £500 to get essential books in place for their classes ASAP. Thank you!Parents have been donating or buying books where they can over the last 3 years, but this needs to be better co-ordinated.The Spanish teachers are working together to identify the resources needed to cover the breadth of ability (native speakers to beginners), so they can be shared effectively across the EE classes.Some Spanish parents are now negotiating discounts for the school with publishers.The PTA will grant these funds directly to the school to buy the resources required.There are NO platform or processing fees of any kind for using Wonderful to donate. The costs are covered by Wonderful's corporate partners. UK taxpayers can maximise their contribution with giftaid. So, for a £10 donation + giftaid the school can spend £12.50 and may also be able to leverage a discount.All donations, however small, will help. Muchas Gracias.
