Modern Foreign Language
Throughout Key Stage 2, we use Language Angels to teach our Spanish lessons. Through this programme, children learn how to listen attentively to a spoken language, explore the pattern and sounds of language through songs and rhymes, engage in conversations, speak in sentences, develop accurate pronunciation and intonation, present ideas and information orally, read carefully and show understanding of simple words and phrases, broaden their vocabulary, write phrases from memory and understand basic grammar.

As well as following our Language Angels programme, we find as many opportunities as we can to bring Spanish into other areas of the curriculum, such as: asking pupils to work out simple questions in Maths lessons using Spanish numbers rather than English, and teaching additional Spanish lessons that link with the children’s Science or Jigsaw topics e.g. healthy eating.
Children learn through a variety of techniques, to encourage active engagement in learning a foreign language, such as: repetitive chanting to learn new vocabulary, games, role-play, songs, rhymes and poems. Where possible, native speakers will be invited into the classroom, in order to expose the children to more than one voice.
