Hello and welcome to the Spanish curriculum page co-ordinated by Mr.Harrison. During Spanish lessons students will develop their skills and knowledge of the Spanish language through listening, reading, speaking, and writing.  Students will increase their awareness of cultural perspectives and practices associated with Spanish speaking countries, as well as make connections and comparisons associated with the Spanish language.

Please take a look at out vision, intent, implementation & impact. You will also find documents relating to our curriculum below!

At Bleak Hill, we aim to foster an interest in learning other languages by introducing children to the language in a way that is enjoyable, fun and accessible so that they develop their awareness of cultural differences and similarities and that they are able to build on this throughout their lives.

At Bleak Hill Primary School, we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides significant educational, social and cultural benefits for our pupils. MFL lessons play an important role in developing children’s speaking, listening and literacy skills, boosting self-esteem and self-confidence, and providing opportunities for enriching cross-curricular learning. Learning another language also promotes intercultural understanding, giving children a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others.

At Bleak Hill, we use the content from the National Curriculum as a basis to deliver our choses Modern Foreign Language of Spanish (MFL). Spanish was chosen after discussions with staff about which language was most beneficial based upon it being one of the languages delivered at Rainford High (which we are a feeder school for).

Throughout the KS2 curriculum, we have sequenced Spanish to have one unit being taught per half term, which builds on previous knowledge. The units are based upon a central theme where appropriate, allowing for links to made with key events in the world around us. Throughout each unit, whenever new language is presented, children are given repeated opportunities to practise and develop both their spoken and written language.

Those points are then revisited within subsequent lessons and units, to support retrieval and retention of knowledge. Each of the units per year group, cover all four areas of development, which we aim to lay the foundations for further study within KS3. The content progressively focusses upon grammatical understanding, learning basic grammar which is appropriate to the language. The content is intended to be both memorable and engaging, with a focus upon songs, rhyme and actions throughout the delivery of units, to aid understanding.
