MFL Curriculum Principles
Children are taught Spanish weekly in short-burst, 30minute sessions. These lessons focus primarily on the acquisition of speaking and listening skills, whilst also incorporating opportunities to develop reading and writing abilities.
Our approach to learning a language puts emphasis on a fun, relaxed atmosphere where praise is given to all abilities and children feel confident to push their limits.
Mediums such as ICT, games, flash cards and cultural exposure are consistently used to support children in their learning.
Spanish language is embedded across the entire school. Target language phrases are incorporated within the school day and used by class teachers to take the register, dinner register, basic instructions and positive praise.
Through high quality, language rich lessons, children begin to develop an understanding of a second language and its grammatical structure. As a result, learners inevitably become more aware of, and develop a deeper understanding their own language.
