Curriculum Intent

At Trinity, we ensure that all children understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic resources. To be able to speak with increasing confidence, fluency and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation. To write a varying length, for different purposes and audiences using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.

Sequencing and Progression

The curriculum map is designed in such a way that children are able to build on their prior learning. Key vocabulary and pronunciation skills are revisited and developed every week. Children’s knowledge of vocabulary and grammar is built upon throughout each year and across the year groups.

What does Spanish look like at Trinity?

Children from Y3-6 get a weekly Spanish lesson with a specialist Spanish teacher. In Year 3 they cover basic vocabulary and this develops as they progress through the school to year 6. Every half term, the children will cover a different unit,. For example, weather, food or talking about themselves. 

As well as learning the language, they also get an introduction into life in Spain and some of the similarities and differences in the culture. The lessons are very active, with lots of opportunities for speaking and listening so children can practise their conversational skills.
