Spanish at Lawrence

 

 

Curriculum Intent

 

In Spanish, we want our children to be open minded, independent, respectful, resilient, active, creative and forward thinking.

 

The 2014 National Curriculum for modern Foreign Languages aims to ensure that all children:

  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.

  • Are able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions and they are  continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.

  • Can write at varying length for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures they have learnt.

  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied. Competence in another language enables children to interpret, create, and exchange meaning within and across cultures. It also helps children develop skills that will open further opportunities later in life. 

 

At Lawrence, the teaching of Spanish in KS1 and KS2 provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching at ks3.

Children are introduced to Spanish from year 1 and receive a weekly 30 minute lesson, throughout year 1 and 2.

This enables the children to develop early language acquisition skills that facilitate their understanding of the patterns of language and how these differ from, or are similar to, English. In ks2, each class has a timetabled Spanish lesson once a week.

 

 

Lessons across the key stages support the skills of speaking and listening, reading and writing and the children at Lawrence learn about:

Curriculum Impact

 

Our MFL curriculum ensures that children develop their knowledge of where different languages, including the range of home languages spoken by the families of the school, as well as in Spanish are spoken in the world.

 

Assessment information is integral to our monitoring cycle.  Our monitoring cycle is developed at the beginning of each academic year.  Monitoring in history includes: lesson observations, book scrutinies and pupil voice.
