The intention of the Spanish curriculum at St Anne’s Primary School is that children are taught to develop an interest in learning other languages in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating. It is our aim that all children are exposed to languages from an early age, providing them with the confidence, ability and willingness to learn about other countries and cultures. During their time with us, children will develop an appreciation and knowledge of foreign languages, enabling them to experiment with language when the opportunity presents itself. We encourage children’s confidence and we strive to encourage their curiosity about language.

Our MFL curriculum is designed to develop children’s skills in languages through regular lessons. Children progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary. This is organised around topics including: numbers, colours, introducing myself, house and home, pets and the classroom.

It is intended that when children leave St Anne’s Primary School, they will have a natural curiosity and confidence to explore other countries, cultures and languages accepting that, in a multi-lingual society, it is a valuable skill to be able to communicate effectively with others in another language. We strive to embed the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing necessary to enable children to use and apply their Spanish in a variety of contexts and lay the foundations for future language learning.
