The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils in KS2 (Years 3 to 6):

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied

At Rangeworthy we achieve this by:

  • Focusing predominantly on the teaching of Spanish
  • Developing children’s early language learning skills in KS1 through the use of classroom language, songs and games
  • In KS2 language learning is led by a native Spanish speaker who gives weekly lessons, reinforced by the class teacher through the use of language in the classroom
  • Ensuring that written Spanish is on display around the school
