Our Key Stage Two children are taught Spanish once a fortnight on their PPA day.

The Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish) Curriculum focuses on: 

  • listening attentively to spoken language and showing understanding by joining in and responding
  • exploring the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and linking the spelling, sound and meaning of words
  • engaging in conversations; asking and answering questions; expressing opinions and responding to those of others
  • speaking in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures
  • developing accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases
  • presenting ideas and information orally to a range of audiences
  • reading carefully and showing understanding of words, phrases and simple writing
  • appreciation of stories, songs, poems and rhymes in the language
  • broadening vocabulary and developing the ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary
  • writing phrases from memory, and adapting these to create new sentences, to express ideas clearly
  • describing people, places, things and actions orally and in writing
  • understanding basic grammar appropriate to the language being studied, including (where relevant): feminine, masculine and neuter forms and the conjugation of high-frequency verbs; key features and patterns of the language; how to apply these, for instance, to build sentences; and how these differ from or are similar to English
