MFL

Modern Foreign Languages

Market Drayton Junior School believes that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for the pupils and is keen to promote the introduction of a Modern Foreign Language to all pupils of primary age.

 

From 2020-21, Spanish will be taught throughout Key Stage 2. In lower school, language will be delivered weekly by the class teacher. In upper school, the children will receive one hour of Spanish per week during PPA sessions, for two out of three terms. This will be supplemented with incidental language opportunities, whole-school and classroom displays as well as celebratory language days.

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.

The Spanish curriculum will be rolled out over 4 years, as shown below:
