At Crags, Spanish is the chosen language of study and pupils are encouraged to learn basic vocabulary and how to ask and answer simple questions. Children will feel more confident to present ideas, both in speaking and writing and to read a range of words, phrases and sentences by the end of Year 6.
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
