Modern Foreign Languages
Modern foreign languages lessons are delivered weekly by a specialist teacher to all KS2 classes.
At Cooks Spinney Primary we focus on French & Spanish throughout Key Stage 2. We believe that it is important that the children gain experiences of other languages. We aim to heighten their awareness of these through the teaching of various topics throughout the school year. This is done through specialist language teachers through our partnership with Burnt Mill Academy, part of the BMAT trust.
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.
