Spanish is a well established subject in Millfields.In line with the national curriculum for languages we aim to ensure that all pupils:

• understand and respond to spoken and written language
• speak with increasing confidence and accuracy.
• can write at varying length and use the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.

We also believe that learning Spanish from an earlier age will ensure that pupils:

• develop an interest in other languages.
• value language learning as a life-long skill.
• gain language learning skills and knowledge about language.
• respect and value diversity
• develop self esteem and confidence through communication skills
• develop research skills to extend knowledge and understanding.

All KS1 and KS2 children attend a 45-60 minutes session of Spanish weekly.All lessons are delivered by our Specialist Language Teacher. Regular routines, games and songs are present in every lesson in a way that children find enjoyable.

Children in Years 1 to 6 have home access to an online Spanish website called Languagenut.Aspects of Spanish are included in School Assemblies and Spanish Star of the Week certificates are awarded during celebration assemblies.We organise a Spanish Week in the spring term to celebrate the children’s learning and the diversity of the Spanish Speaking World.In addition we run an after school Spanish club open to all ages.
