Spanish (MFL)

St Augustine’s uses the Language Angels scheme of work and resources to ensure we offer a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide variety of topics and themes. All pupils will be expected to achieve their full potential by encouraging high expectations and excellent standards in their foreign language learning - the ultimate aim being that pupils will feel willing and able to continue studying languages beyond Key Stage 2. All content is continuously updated and reviewed annually, creating a dynamic programme of study that is clearly outlined in both long-term and short-term planning. This ensures that the foreign language knowledge of our pupils progresses within each academic year and is extended year upon year throughout the primary phase and, in doing so, will always be relevant and in line with meeting or exceeding national DfE requirements.


All Key Stage 2 classes have access to a very high-quality Spanish curriculum using the Language Angels scheme of work and resources. This will progressively develop pupil skills in Spanish through regularly taught and well-planned weekly lessons in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The subject is led by a qualified Modern Foreign Languages Teacher and lessons are taught in class by classroom teachers. Planning documents and lesson videos are provided to ensure that teachers know what to teach and how to teach it in each lesson, across whole units and across each term. Children will progressively acquire, use and apply a growing bank of vocabulary, language skills and grammatical knowledge organised around age-appropriate topics and themes - building blocks of language into more complex, fluent and authentic language. Lessons offering appropriate levels of challenge and stretch will be taught at all times to ensure pupils learn effectively, continuously building their knowledge of and enthusiasm for Spanish.



Pupils will continuously build on their previous knowledge as they progress in their Spanish learning journey through the primary phase. Previous language will be recycled, revised, recalled and consolidated whenever possible and appropriate. The aim is that all pupils at St Augustine’s will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating.
