Spanish

Curriculum Intent

The MFL department aims to support students to understand life in Spanish speaking countries and culture in these countries so that pupils can be more open and adaptable to new experiences. We aim to develop confident language learners who are resilient and are able to communicate effectively and confidently in Spanish, building skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. We endeavour to make learning Spanish enjoyable and meaningful, providing students with a variety of language learning opportunities. We ensure that students have a sound understanding of French grammar and vocabulary and are able to progress readily to the next stage of their learning and aim to develop independent learners by ensuring that learning in the classroom is enhanced through self-study.

 

Curriculum Outline

 

Year 7 Curriculum

Students are familiarised with Latin American culture and history as well as introduced to basic introductory language.

 

Year 8 Curriculum

Students further develop their understanding of Latin American culture and history, reinforcing the language learnt in year 7 as well as developing knowledge of the past and future tense.

 

Year 9 Curriculum

Students continue developing their understanding of Latin American culture, reinforcing the language learnt in year 7 and 8 as well as developing and manipulating new grammatical structures.

 

Year 10 Curriculum

Students are taught a range of topics, which aim to continue expanding students’ cultural knowledge. Year 10 builds upon the structures learnt from yr7 to yr9 and students are taught further grammatical structures and more in-depth content. They practise communicating using all four skills: speaking listening, reading and writing.

 

These are the topics taught at GCSE:

The students have 3 cycles in year 10, which interlink all of the topics.

 

Year 11 Curriculum

Students continue learning the topics introduced in year 10, which aim to continue expanding students’ cultural knowledge and continue to build upon the structures learnt in year 10. They also continue developing their ability to manipulate grammatical structures and communicate with confidence when speaking, listening, reading and writing.
