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.
