Learning a foreign language is fulfilling and liberating, giving pupils at Mayflower an important window into other cultures. We choose to teach Spanish. Our Spanish curriculum helps to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world around them. This is taught through learning songs, rhymes and a comprehensive programme of study from year 1 to year 6. Teaching helps pupils to express their ideas and thoughts and to understand and respond to others. It provides opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking. Our pupils learn Spanish at Mayflower School, but this teaching provides the foundation for learning further languages which will support children with their transition to local secondary schools.

We aim for all pupils to:

  • 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
  • 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
