Our Spanish Curriculm 

2023 - 2024


At Bramley Sunnyside Junior school, we believe that learning a foreign language is important to all children, with the intent that all pupils will develop a genuine interest and positive curiosity about foreign languages, finding them enjoyable and stimulating.

Learning a second language will also offer pupils the opportunity to explore relationships between language and identity, develop a deeper understanding of other cultures and the world around them with a better awareness of self, others and cultural differences. The intention is that they will be working towards becoming life-long language learners. 

We will use the Language Angels scheme of work and resources to ensure we offer a relevant, broad, vibrant and ambitious foreign languages curriculum that will inspire and excite our pupils using a wide variety of topics and themes. 

Through a collaborative approach, students are taught the three pillars of language learning (phonetics, vocabulary and grammar) in a combination of explicit and integrated lessons. All students will be exposed to Spanish through reading, writing, speaking and listening where new learning is recycled, revisited and consolidated. This will ensure that the foreign language knowledge of our pupils progresses within each academic year and is extended year upon year throughout key stage 2, in so doing, will always be relevant and in line with meeting or exceeding national DfE requirements. By the end of year 6, pupils will have had the opportunity to meet all 12 of the National Curriculum attainment targets with the ultimate aim being that pupils will feel willing and able to continue studying languages beyond key stage 2.

Our Spanish subject lead - Kat Steel - has created our Spanish curriculum, utilising the expertise from Language Angels as well as her own passion and talents in the Spanish language, for example:
Kat has then further broken down each unit into a medium term plan so it is clear for all teachers to access with the content and vocabulary:
Year 3 example
This is then further broken down lesson-by-lesson with the supporitng resources and vocabulary:
Each unit also has a Topic Overview for the children to refer to with the objectives and what they will be learning, vocaulary with images and grammar.
This is all presented in her subject leader report.
