At Yaxham CE VA Primary School we use the teaching scheme Rigolo, along with a range of other resources will be used as a guide to support the teaching of Spanish. Songs and stories as well as ICT resources will also be used to support the delivery. Lessons will include cultural links, and will look at the similarities and differences between Spanish and English culture.

The aims of the national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils 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.

Our curriculum map shows the progression of knowledge and skills throughout Key Stage 2.  

The children have been learning how to read, write and say food items and pet animals in Spanish.
