Spanish (Intent)

A high quality languages education should aim to engage children and deepen their understanding of the world. Developing knowledge of another language enables children to interpret, create and exchange meaning within and across cultures and may create opportunities for them later in life.

At Dallam Primary we aim to ensure that all children:

  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
  • Are able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say.
  • Are 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.

Spanish (Implementation)

Children in KS2 are taught by an external teacher who is fluent in Spanish. The class teacher remains in lessons to help develop his/her own skills in this subject.

Lessons cover objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum and are designed to progressively develop all four skills in Spanish; reading, writing, speaking and listening. In years 3 and 4 the amount of speaking and listening lesson content will be much greater than that of reading and writing; this will balance out in years 5 and 6.

Spanish (Impact)

Children who attend our school may not always have the opportunity to experience other cultures outside of their own. However, by learning a foreign language, they are given a small window into different countries and their cultures and this can help to deepen their understanding of the world around them.

Assessment in KS2 is in four key areas:

  •  speaking
  •  listening
  • reading
  • writing

Expectations by the end of Year 6

By the end of year 6 it is expected that most children will be able to:

  • Converse briefly without prompts.
  • Listen to and understand the main points from a small passage.
  • Give a presentation in a clear, audible voice.
  • Read aloud with confidence and expression.
  • Read and understand the main points from a short written passage.
  • Write several sentences from memory.
  • Demonstrate understanding of and respect for cultural diversity.
