Subject Lead: Miss Brown

We chose the Spanish language as our modern foreign language because it is the third most spoken language in the world after Chinese and English. It’s also the native language of more than 400 million people across 44 countries, which makes it one of the most useful languages to know.

A high-quality Spanish education should engage and inspire pupils to develop a love of language, and so increase their self-confidence and sense of achievement. Children find Spanish lessons captivating and interactive, and they enjoy orally reciting their learning. Learning Spanish also inspires the children to learn about another country and their culture as well as how to respect individual differences. Finally, this learning enables students to communicate with others across the globe.

Curriculum Intent - This is what we want the children to learn.

At Holy Trinity, we encourage our pupils to celebrate our diversity as they learn to respect and become aware of similarities and differences between cultures and languages. Our Spanish curriculum will create opportunities which will inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about language that will remain with them for the rest of their lives. All pupils will show enthusiasm for and develop a love of learning a new language.

We believe that our Spanish curriculum will enable pupils to flourish as they learn a new life skill. We will reiterate the important positive gains from learning a language such as the ability to communicate internationally and understand more about these communities in the wider world. Our pupils leave Holy Trinity with a strong sense of respect and love for the world in which they live.

Holy Trinity is committed to ensuring our pupils develop into active, independent learners, accessing a curriculum that enthuses, engages, and builds on skills and knowledge. Throughout their Spanish learning, pupils will feel empowered and encouraged to have a voice. Our pupils will embed skills as they learn at a suitable pace in a caring and supportive environment. Opportunities are given to our pupils throughout the year to shine as beacons of light as they share their new language skills with their peers in school as well as families at home.

In line with the 2014 National Curriculum, our aim is to provide a high‐quality language education which equips children to use aspects of the  Spanish language confidently and be inspired to engage with languages  enthusiastically when leaving for secondary education. Children will leave Holy Trinity being able to understand and feel confident to communicate in Spanish to prepare them for their next step in education.
