Modern Foreign Language

At Bletchingdon, in Key Stage 2, we learn Spanish. The teaching of this is based on the 4 pillars of language: reading, writing, listening and speaking. Each lesson is structured around one of these pillars, allowing the children ample practice in each.

In Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 & 4), the main objective is acquiring vocabulary and familiarising themselves with the sounds and pronunciation. The children gain basic grammatical and syntaxic knowledge of the language; allowing them to produce and understand simple sentences.

As the children move into Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 & 6), they begin to formulate more complex structures; expanding their vocabulary and grammatical understanding leading to more advanced productions.

In addition to language skills, we also aim to promote cultural awareness and understanding. To do this, the children explore numerous celebrations and traditions from the hispanic world. We believe this helps them understand the world around them; reinforcing tolerance and respect for all people.
