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.

 

Nursery have been playing lots of games to help them learn some animal names...

una jirafa = a giraffe

un leon = a lion

un mono = a monkey

un elefante = an elephant

un serpiente = a snake

 

Year 2 have been learning the words for different clothes: 'La Ropa'.

Here's a song they can practice at home...

Year Group Overviews

Year 3

During the Spring term the Year 3 pupils will be learning the names of different animals. We will be reading an animal story in Spanish, and talking about what pets we have. We will be looking at some Spanish grammar points, such as plural nouns and adjectives (colour words). Through games and songs the children will become increasingly confident with numbers, classroom instructions and common questions & answers.

Year 4

This term we focus on developing vocabulary to describe shapes and positions. We will play games involving giving each other directions to develop our listening and speaking skills. The children will then learn how to talk about facial features and body parts in Spanish. They will further their understanding of grammar, in particular how to ensure that adjectives agree with the nouns they are describing.

Year 5

During the spring term pupils in Year 5 learn how to talk about the different sports they enjoy, using different verbs such as 'jugar' (to play) and 'practicar' (to practice or do). They will write their own paragraphs about their likes and dislikes, and create role-plays in groups to develop their confidence in conversational Spanish. We will look at regular verb conjugation: how the endings change depending on who we are talking about.

Year 6

Pupils begin this unit by learning about some different Spanish towns. We will describe where they are on a map, and also learn how to say where you live: 'Vivo en...' We will then move on to describing places in a town, through watching videos of Spanish children talking about where they live. We will make our own maps, learn how to ask for directions, and create videos talking about Chorlton.
