The chosen language for our MFL curriculum is Spanish, delivered by a subject specialist from the Primary Languages Network. The content of our curriculum is mapped progressively, within the four areas of language, speaking, listening, reading and writing. Although non-statutory, Spanish is introduced in KS1 (mainly through songs and actions), as it allows our children to have a great starting point in learning a language and means our children begin to develop their knowledge, primarily within the areas of speaking and listening. Building on the knowledge accrued within Key Stage 1, reading and writing are progressively taught alongside speaking and listening, throughout Key Stage 2, for 30 minutes per week. The learning of a language also promotes global citizenship, developing cultural understanding and providing our children with a deeper insight into beliefs, customs and cultures within the world around them. This is an integral part of our St James Journey Curriculum.
