Modern Foreign Language

Spanish has been chosen as our modern foreign language.

Spanish is taught every week  in Key Stage 2 by a Spanish speaking specialist teacher who uses a variety of techniques to encourage the children to have an active engagement with Spanish, to develop a positive approach to languages and to develop an understanding of different cultures.

Our Spanish curriculum is in line with the new National Curriculum and is adapted to each class topic to ensure children learn Spanish in a meaningful context.

In Key Stage 2, children are given the opportunity  to engage in a variety of role-plays to practise their speaking and listening and once they have mastered saying phrases aloud, they are shown the written form.    As they progress, children are given opportunities to read and write short passages of French for a range of reasons
