Foreign languages are a compulsory subject at Key Stage 2 (Year 3 upwards).  However, we start our pupils experiences of Spanish in Reception by using fun activities and games. We then start weekly learning Spanish lessons from Year 1 - Year 6.  


Pupils are taught to:


  • Listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding
  • Engage in conversations, ask and answer questions, express opinions and respond to those of others, and seek clarification and help.
  • Read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing.
  • Broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary. 
  • Write phrases from memory, and adapt these to create new sentences, expressing their ideas clearly.
  • Describe people, pleases, things and actions in speech and writing. 


We use Lightbulb languages resources to sequence our lessons and ensure that each one builds on previous experiences.
