Foreign Languages

Primary Foreign Languages is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum and is taught in KS2 classes. In this school, we focus on Spanish.

We strive to bring Spanish to life; and to relate it to the life experiences of the pupils in our school, through a cross-curricular, lively approach. We use games and songs in order to develop and orally rehearse vocabulary and this subject involves lots of practical opportunities to embed what the children have learnt in a fun and memorable way.

Please find attached our Foreign Languages statement; our long-term plan; and the end points in Foreign Languages, which we use to assess pupils' progress and attainment, at key points in their education. The End Points also help us to provide relevant next steps for all pupils. Unusual to this subject, the nature of Spanish language learning necessitates the constant repetition of end points, over time, with the introduction of some new ones each year. This is due to the non-linear nature of foreign language acquisition.
