Spanish is taught to children in Key Stage 2 on a weekly basis. We have introduced the Primary Languages Network as a basis for our planning in which we focus on the four areas of language learning which are reading, speaking, listening and writing. This helps to create a full and enriched curriculum for our children and ensures that we cover the main objectives across the key stage.
We want all children at Sacred Heart Primary to be able to deepen their understanding of other cultures and have curiosity about the world. We aim to provide children with the opportunity to express their ideas and thoughts in Spanish with growing confidence and to understand and respond, both in speech and in writing.
We hope for children to have the confidence and opportunity to participate in speaking activities and develop their communication skills. Additionally, we aim for children to be able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity and finding ways of communicating what they want to say. This could be in the form of a discussion and asking questions. Children should be able to continually improve the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
