Crags Spanish Curriculum
At Crags Community School our creative curriculum is shaped by our whole school vision, which aims to enable all, regardless of background, ability or additional needs, to flourish and to become the very best that they can be. Within our Spanish curriculum we have incorporated the National Curriculum programmes of study alongside a detailed progression of skills document. This enables staff to provide high quality and responsive teaching which also embeds the Crags Ethos of developing our pupil’s sense of community, relationships, aspirations, growth and success.
As a result, a high quality languages education should foster children’s sense of: community, relationships, aspirations, growth and success. At Crags Community School our languages curriculum aims to make the learning of Spanish a purposeful and enjoyable experience by helping children to develop their knowledge of and confidence in Spanish through an appropriate balance of spoken and written language. We are committed to ensuring children have a basic competence in interpreting, creating and exchanging meaning within and across cultures in order to prepare them for the next stage of their learning journey in KS3.
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
