Bonneygrove Primary School works hard to introduce our children to the wider world, including places in other countries. As part of the ‘Modern Foreign Languages’ curriculum we teach Spanish. We believe that learning a foreign language is a liberation and provides an opening to other cultures. At Bonneygrove we ensure our high-quality language education should fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world.
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.
