Modern Foreign Languages

Curriculum Overview

Pupils throughout Key Stage 2 have a weekly Spanish lesson with Miss Anderson following the National Curriculum Progamme of Study. 

This ensures that our children:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written Spanish
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences
  • use the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

 

Pupils in EYFS and KS1 have short Spanish sessions on a rotational basis, using games, puppets, songs and stories to harness an early enthusiasm for language learning.

Year Group Overviews

Year 3

This term we are using the story 'La Oruga Muy Hambrienta' (The Very Hungry Caterpillar') as the inspiration for our Spanish learning in Year 3.   Children will listen to the story in Spanish, learn the names of fruits and the other food that the caterpillar eats, and also the days of the week.  After half term we will be learning how to order food in a role-play cafe.

After half term we will be learning how to talk about our families, including how many siblings we have.  Click below to find some useful vocabulary to practice at home!

Year 5

This term the pupils in Year 5 will learn how to talk about the instruments they play. They will learn the different forms of the verb 'tocar' (to play).  Children will learn how to sing 'Yo soy músico' ('I am the music man'), and will create their own raps in Spanish! Click below to find some useful vocabulary to practice at home!

Year 6

This term in Year 6 pupils will be creating a video tour of our school: Mi colegio. We will be learning the words for different places in the school, as well as talking about our favourite subjects. We will be writing about our school, and how we are feeling about going to secondary school in our letters to our penpals. We will then look at summer holiday vocabulary and write postcards. Click below to find some useful vocabulary to practice at home!
