MFL at Nansledan


‘A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.’

(National Curriculum 2014 – Appendix A)


The skills, knowledge and understanding gained through learning a language contribute to the development of children’s oracy and literacy, as well as their understanding of their own culture and those of others. Here at Nansledan Primary School, we feel that the earlier a child is exposed to a foreign language, the faster the language in question is acquired. We believe that the early acquisition of Spanish will facilitate the learning of other foreign languages later in life. We will prepare children for the KS3 language curriculum to enable them to transfer confidently and successfully.


Through the high quality first teaching of Spanish taking place we will see the impact of the subject in the following ways:

· Children will become aware that a language has a structure, and that the structure differs from one language to another.

· Children will develop their language and communication through development of the four key skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing.

· Children will enrich their language learning by developing an understanding of the Spanish culture.

· Children will transfer to KS3 effectively and successfully and will be well prepared to continue and develop their language skills.

National Curriculum objectives are further supplemented by a career focus in certain Spanish lessons, where teachers help pupils to contextualise their learning by sharing possible future paths and exploring the impact of significant individuals across the various topics.
