Modern Foreign Language

At St Michael's Primary School, our primary intent is to introduce students to the Spanish language and culture, fostering a love for learning languages, promoting cultural diversity, and equipping pupils with essential language skills. The curriculum intends to make language learning an engaging and enjoyable experience while building a strong foundation for further language studies.

Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2):

  • Introduction to Spanish: Students will be introduced to basic Spanish vocabulary and phrases through songs, games, and interactive activities.
  • Cultural Awareness: Early exposure to Spanish-speaking cultures through storytelling and simple cultural activities.
  • Oral Communication: Focusing on speaking and listening skills to build pronunciation and comprehension.

Key Stage 2 (Years 3 to 6):

  • Progressive Language Acquisition: Building on the foundation from Key Stage 1, students will develop their Spanish language skills with a focus on grammar and vocabulary expansion.
  • Reading and Writing: Introduction to basic reading and writing skills, including simple texts and letters in Spanish.
  • Cultural Exploration: A deeper exploration of Spanish cities, their traditions, and celebrations.

The curriculum in England ensures a well-rounded and enjoyable introduction to the Spanish language, nurturing students' language proficiency, cultural awareness, and preparing them for further language studies at the secondary level. The curriculum's intent is to foster a lifelong love for language learning and promote an appreciation for global diversity.
