Our intent at St Oswald’s is to encourage learners to understand and communicate ideas, facts and feelings in speech and writing, focusing on familiar and routine matters, whilst using their knowledge of phonology, grammatical structures and vocabulary. The implementation of the Spanish curriculum will foster the learner’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. It will encourage the learners to understand different cultures, their origins and communicate their thoughts and opinions in another language. Our children will be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and cultural capital to be contributing, well rounded citizens with high expectations and ambition. Lower KS2 begin to acquire basic skills and understanding in Spanish with a strong emphasis placed on developing their Speaking and Listening ability. These will be further developed in Upper KS2 alongside Reading and Writing skills, gradually progressing to more complex language concepts and greater learner autonomy.
