Languages at Brookfield Park Primary School (Spanish)


Our intent for Languages at Brookfield Park is:
We want our pupils to have a love of languages, a link with the wider world and a deeper understanding of their own language too.
We want our pupils to develop a wider cultural understanding of the world in which they live, to be curious about the thoughts of others and through this develop tolerance;
 We want our pupils to enjoy learning a new language, a skill which they can master and apply in lots of areas, helping them to become citizens of the wider world.
•    Themselves
•    Places they go
•    Cultural



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.


Pupils should be taught to:

 listen attentively to spoken language and show understanding by joining in and responding

 explore the patterns and sounds of language through songs and rhymes and link the spelling, sound and meaning of words

 engage in conversations; ask and answer questions; express opinions and respond to those of others; seek clarification and help*

 speak in sentences, using familiar vocabulary, phrases and basic language structures

 develop accurate pronunciation and intonation so that others understand when they are reading aloud or using familiar words and phrases*  present ideas and information orally to a range of audiences*  read carefully and show understanding of words, phrases and simple writing

 appreciate stories, songs, poems and rhymes in the language

 broaden their vocabulary and develop their ability to understand new words that are introduced into familiar written material, including through using a dictionary
