Spanish Curriculum Intent

Spanish Curriculum Intent

To offer a broad, vibrant and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils. To spark interest in and positive curiosity about foreign languages, offering the opportunity to explore relationships with language and identity, develop a deeper understanding of other culture and the world around them, with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences. The intention is that they will become life- long language learners.

“A new initiative, involving a school in northern Spain, is enabling pupils to practise their Spanish, while also learning about another community in Europe.”  Ofsted 2018

Introduction to Spanish

Introduction to Spanish

Children’s language learning starts with lots of repetition and recall with good pronunciation and high accuracy of nouns and articles. Pupils build on simple nouns and articles by starting to create short, spoken simple sentences integrating grammatical structures and order of sentences. Pupils engage in spoken tasks to develop their pronunciation and language is always modelled by a teacher or a native speaker recording.  Pupils learn to both ask and answer a variety of key questions in Spanish, building on previous knowledge to integrate vocabulary. They are exposed to ambitious vocabulary and are taught to use strategies to decode meaning through their understanding of indefinite verbs and conjugations. We make learning in Spanish as active as possible, with a balance of speaking, listening and writing tasks to develop knowledge and skills. We use knowledge organisers to help us remember previous topics and utilise new language in different Spanish units to build fluency of recall and spoken language.
