Modern Foreign Languages - Spanish
MFL Vision and Intent
At Cavendish Community Primary School we are committed to encouraging and nurturing children’s enthusiasm for languages. We will enable pupils to develop their communication skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as deepen their understanding of how language works. We aim to provide pupils with the confidence and independence to explore and be able to attempt manipulation of the structure of language. As a school, we believe that learning a foreign language should provide pupils with an opportunity to embrace their own/other cultures and fuel their curiosity about the wider world. We aim to provide the foundation for language learning in their next stage of education as well as equip them to study and work in other countries.
Statement of Intent
We aim for pupils at Cavendish to -
-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.
