MFL (Spanish)

Spanish is taught for 25 minutes weekly to children in Years 3 to 6 by Miss. Hammond, our Year 5 class teacher and specialist languages teacher. Regular lessons in MFL have ensured that our children have made good progress in Spanish language across the four skills of language learning (listening, speaking, reading and writing). Children spend time in each lesson consolidating previous learning ensuring that they remember more of the language over time. Much of the instruction of the lesson is conducted in Spanish meaning that children are always practising and improving their comprehension skills as well as being given regular opportunities to speak in Spanish through drilling activities and conversation practice with their partners. Reading and writing activities are recorded in the children's Spanish books where they are able to access and revise all previous learning.
