Spanish Language at Four Swannes


Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other

cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen

their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas

and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in

speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for

practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original

language. Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further

languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.


Our Aims

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.

Attainment targets

By the end of each key stage, pupils are expected to know, apply and understand the

matters, skills and processes specified in the relevant programme of study.
