Children in key stage 2 at Henwick have the opportunity to learn Spanish. As set out in the National Programme of study for foreign languages, our main focus is on practical communication.
Our Spanish curriculum is underpinned by three key skills:
- understanding and responding to both spoken and written language
- speaking with increasing confidence
- writing in Spanish using correct spellings and punctuation
Children have the opportunity to build these skills and increase their knowledge of Spanish vocabulary and grammar through songs, books and role-play centred around different topics, for example colours, numbers, food and common greetings.
