At the Oaks Primary School, pupils learn to speak Spanish. In Key Stage Two, the children learn basic conversational skills and phrases through dedicated lesson time. Spanish objectives are set in Year 3,4,5 and 6 to ensure progression in speaking, listening and reading and writing.
The intention of the Spanish curriculum at The Oaks Primary School is that children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. We encourage children’s confidence, we strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiousity about language. Children are encouraged to develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries alongside their British values. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their Spanish learning in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
Our MFL curriculum is designed to progressively develop children skills in languages, through regular taught lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary organised around topics. All our children in KS2 will have regular language lessons.
