Curriculum Intent:  Modern Foreign Languages at HFS

Spanish is currently taught at Holy Family School


We aim to develop children’s experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about languages as a means of communication in our modern world. We aim to support children to be able to express themselves in Spanish in speech and writing. Whilst teaching Spanish, we also draw upon other learning opportunities across the curriculum. For example, during our Around the World Day studies in Geography, we have been looking at the location of spanish speaking countries. We seek opportunities to embed language learning during theme days, which include International Languages Day in September, and our annual language day during the summer term.


Teaching and Learning Overview

This is in line with the recommendations of the Primary National Curriculum and the teacher will draw upon a range of techniques to ensure that children of all abilities meet their full potential. Children are encouraged to:

  • 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
  • Develop the ability to write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of vocabulary and grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

We use a range of resources to teach and assess a child’s experience of the Spanish language in key stage two.
