Modern Foreign Languages at Barrington Primary School
At Barrington Primary School, we teach Spanish.
Our intent for the MFL curriculum is to allow children to develop an interest in learning other languages in an enjoyable and stimulating manner which is inclusive of every child. We strive to stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language and develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries. In doing this, we open up opportunities for our pupils in later life across the globe and help them become forward-thinking individuals who understand the world outside of their home town.
Our aim is to embed the listening, reading, speaking and writing skills necessary to enable children to use and apply their Spanish learning in a variety of contexts, laying the foundations for future language learning at secondary school. These skills then support all children in all curricular subjects with their listening and communication skills.
We provide opportunities for communication for practical purposes, which provides a foundation for learning further languages and equips pupils to study and work in other countries. By progressively growing children’s vocabulary and grammatical knowledge through key stage two, we intend for our children to be confident, independent Spanish speakers and learners.
