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.
Children from Year 3 to Year 6 have a 45 minutes’ Spanish lesson every week. We use a range of programs to develop children’s skills in languages, through regular taught lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. All of these approaches help to equip the children with the skills to be confident global citizens. There are plenty of different resources to match the MFL curriculum. Assessment is completed termly on Insight.
There are many cross-curricular links that can be developed with Spanish. For example, children can use their mathematic skills to count and do some numbers bonds in Spanish, there is the opportunity to study a Spanish Artist such as Pablo Picasso. There are comparison made between England and Spain in Geography and the children have the opportunity to study historical Spanish events.
Observations by the class teacher and completing assessments on Insight are used to measure curriculum impact and progress.
