Spanish at Mayflower

Image result for spanish flag

Learning a foreign language gives pupils at Mayflower an important window into other cultures. We choose to teach Spanish. Our Spanish curriculum helps to foster pupils’ curiosity and nurture their understanding of the world around them. This is taught through learning songs, rhymes and a comprehensive programme of study from year 3 to year 6. Teaching helps pupils express their ideas and thoughts and to understand and respond to others. It provides opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking. Our pupils learn Spanish at Mayflower school, but this teaching provides the foundation for learning further languages which will support children with their transition to local secondary schools.

We aim for pupils 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.
  • Write, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures they have learnt.
  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing.

"Thank you for providing the groups for our 'Around the world with Captain Cook' pilots today - and to say how utterly delightful both classes were. Impeccable behaved incredibly sensible, engaged throughout their visit and all in all a real pleasure.
