Mickleton Primary School 


Curriculum Implementation Statement for Spanish

To develop the teaching and learning of Spanish across the school, preparing children for future opportunities in Spanish speaking countries.


MFL Curriculum Intent Statement:

The aim of teaching Spanish at Mickleton Primary School is to provide enjoyment and a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. Through learning a foreign language, it helps them to develop communication skills including key skills of speaking and listening and extends their knowledge of how language works.  Learning another language also gives children a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others.

Our curriculum intent includes planned opportunities to:

  • foster an interest in language learning by introducing children to other languages in a way that is enjoyable and accessible to all pupils;
  • stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language and creativity in experimenting with it;
  • support oracy and literacy, and in particular develop speaking and listening skills;
  • help children develop their awareness of cultural similarities and differences;
  • lay the foundations for future language study by pupils;
  • provide an added perspective on first language teaching and learning;
  • give an extra dimension to teaching and learning across the curriculum.


Spanish Curriculum Implementation:

At Mickleton Primary School, Spanish is taught for an hour lesson in KS2.

Lessons are taught within the target language as much as is practically possible, so that children learn to hear and interpret full-speed, fluent Spanish, particularly with commands and classroom functions.

More able children are given the opportunity to stretch themselves in their writing and develop independent language learning skills with the use of dictionaries.

ICT is used where appropriate to enhance teaching and learning.


Spanish recorded work is assessed weekly so next steps in learning can be addressed. Spanish is reported on at the end of each year and this is shared with parents in the annual report.
