MFL (Spanish)

Curriculum Intent

Our intent is to provide an environment where children develop a curiosity about languages as a way of communicating in the modern world.   Children will develop the knowledge to be able to communicate in a language other than English.  Teaching and learning strategies will enable them to know more, remember more and understand more in the target language.

Spanish is taught to year 3,4,5 and 6.  A variety of resources are used to provide the tools for children to communicate in speaking and listening, reading and writing.  The year group overviews below outline the topics taught.  Year group topics are included in the medium term overviews sent home.  We aim to embed language learning and intercultural understanding through our many theme days which include International Languages Day, Around the World Days and our annual MFL day in the summer.  Our Catholic Ethos runs through the MFL curriculum as we focus on religious festivals such as Navidad and Semana Santa.

Hello again Key Stage Two.  I am uploading a video clip and vocabulary/sentence structures related to our theme of Las Mascotas (pets).  As we have already studied this together it would be good to recap, especially as many of us are now spending more time with our pets.  The upload will appear here this evening when the internet is quieter.  All the best,  Mrs Lonergan

During the coronavirus home schooling time, please see these resources for Spanish. Remember, now is a good time to develop your language skills.

In each lesson, we spend time speaking, listening, reading and writing.  This week, we loved learning about our pets.
